Dagenham & Redbridge winger says team are upset with display at The Hive
Zavon Hines says the players let themselves down following Dagenham & Redbridge’s 3-1 defeat away to Barnet.
The Bees struck twice in the first half through Michael Gash and Andy Yiadom before Gash added his second and the hosts’ third 11 minutes into the second period.
Half time substitute Jodi Jones scored a delightful free kick for Daggers with 24 minutes remaining but it proved little more than elementary as the team fell to their fifth league loss this season.
And Hines admits the display the visitors turned in at The Hive was below par.
“We’re quite frustrated because we didn’t play to the standard we expect. Everyone is disappointed, from the gaffer to the players,” said the attacker,
“We’ve just got to watch the DVD, see what we’ve done wrong – which looks like everything – and go again on Tuesday. If we don’t pull our fingers out, we’ll be fighting relegation all season and we don’t want that.”
Hines and Jones were introduced to the action at half time as Wayne Burnett sought a reaction to a dreadful first half.
The two looked lively down the flanks, with Hines drawing the foul for the free kick which Jones scored from.
But in truth, the match was over by the time the pair entered the field of play and Hines was disappointed he could not have more of an impact on the match.
He added: “I try to do what I can but it was a bit hard because I didn’t get the ball as much so I was trying to make runs and get on the ball.
“It just wasn’t going our way. We had a bad start so it was a bit difficult for Jodi and I to make an impact.
“Jodi scored, which was good, and I won the free kick for it so we tried to do what we could after coming on but both of us didn’t get the ball enough in the areas where we could destroy defenders.”
