Blair Turgott scored twice for Stones after Daggers made errors in build-up to goals

Dagenham & Redbridge defender Gavin Hoyte admits the goals conceded in a 2-1 defeat at home to Maidstone United in the Vanarama National League were poor ones to let in.

Former Daggers loanee Blair Turgott netted both goals for Stones, though Peter Taylor’s men made errors in the build-up to both strikes.

Centre-back Will Wright failed to clear his lines in the lead up to Turgott’s first, while the defence did not to react to Joe Quigley’s effort cannoning back off the post shortly before the second.

Hoyte acknowledges both goals were avoidable, bur was keen to take the plus-points from the game.

“We let in two silly goals, but we still had chances, so we have to take the positives from the game,” said the 28-year-old.

Daggers nearly salvaged a point from the match, with the hosts having a late flurry of chances after Elliott Romain pulled one back with 10 minutes to go.

And Hoyte says despite the result, the Essex club can be proud of fighting right until the final whistle.

“We never gave up and still had chances at the end. We were unfortunate not to get another goal at the end, but we have to take the positives from it,” he added.

“Everyone was still going for it and never gave up, and we have to carry on doing that this season.”
