Dagenham & Redbridge manager Peter Taylor feels a disappointing goal cost his side from earning a point off title chasing Wrexham.

Daggers suffered a 1-0 defeat thanks to a 74th minute effort from The Dragons Stuart Beavon at the Racecourse Ground.

And the 66-year-old Taylor feels his side played good enough to earn something from their away trip but admits they lacked what was needed in the final third.

“I think the performance had some good bits about it and I thought it had some disappointing things about it.

“It’s a disappointing goal to concede though because we should have been more aware that a Wrexham player was there.

“There were lots of disappointing things, but I still feel as though we could have got a draw out of it as I thought we had some decent attacks.

“The final bit was the only thing that wasn’t right, but at times we played some very good football.”

The former Gillingham boss insists it’s more frustrating as they work on similar plays defensively in training.

“We always work on that to be honest and that’s where it’s disappointing as we ask people to do certain things and we concede a goal when not carrying that out.

“I think it was the first shot that was disappointing because we should have been more aware of that.”
