Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett disappointed by manner of defeat after showing promise against Crystal Palace.

Daggers boss Wayne Burnett rued his side’s poor first half showing as they lost out 2-0 against Charlton last night.

Chris Powell’s Championship side were by far the better in the opening period and Addicks goalkeeper Ben Hamer had very little to do.

And Burnett was disappointed by Charlton’s first half dominance especially after the promising performance Daggers showed against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

“I thought we were totally dominated in the first half by Charlton and it showed that they are a Championship team and we are a League Two team,” said Burnett.

“It was much better in the second half and we put them under a little bit of pressure and we showed glimpses of what we did on Saturday against Palace.

“We knew it was potentially going to be a tougher game tonight because Charlton are more into their stride then Palace but it’s bitterly disappointing because of the way we performed on Saturday.

“It’s two different games, they are a Championship team pushing for promotion last season. We knew it would be tough and I am really disappointed. We caused our own problems and they carved us open on numerous occasions.”
