Defender helped Essex club keep clean sheet in success at Ravens
Manny Onariase believes Dagenham & Redbridge can be proud of their performance after beating Bromley 2-0 away from home in the Vanarama National League.
Goals from Conor Wilkinson and Angelo Balanta helped Daggers get the better of the Ravens at the weekend.
And defender Onariase, who is on loan from Sky Bet Championship club Rotherham United, believes the was fully deserved for a strong display on the road.
“I thought it was a good performance, a very solid performance from the team and a good 2-0 win away from home,” he told the club website.
“We were resilient and everyone was working hard for each other which was good.”
For the second week in a row, Elliot Justham was the star man for Daggers after another impressive display between the sticks.
The stopper, who was also on top form in a win over Fylde the previous Saturday, produced a string of superb saves at Hayes Lane to hold on to his clean sheet.
Onariase was full of praise for Justham after another brilliant display, but knows the defence must do their bit to keep the stopper from being overworked in the coming weeks.
“Elliot made some great saves at Bromley, but he does that week in, week out,” added the 22-year-old.
“We’re almost getting used to him performing that well now, but we shouldn’t rely solely on him.
“We should always do our job defensively, but having a goalkeeper like that behind you is such a blessing and it adds a lot to the team.”
