Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Terry Harris says it was disappointing to crash to a second consecutive defeat in the National League.
Steven Rigg grabbed a brace to help Gateshead overcome the Daggers in a close-fought encounter at Victoria Road.
“A mixture of both really to be fair, obviously we came into the game in good heart,” Harris said.
“We’ve had a good week’s training, we had a friendly against Millwall, and gave the guys that haven’t been involved a run out.
“We thought if we played to our strengths that we would cause them problems, but we got a bit of a kick back in regards to the penalty, 41st minute so that was disappointing.
“These things happen so we had to come out second-half, we were looking to change our shape to go into a back four, but we conceded a second goal so we then had a mountain to climb.
“We missed a penalty and then it’s even more uphill.”
