Plenty of Daggers fans took to social media following the National League loss away to the Heed

It’s safe to say that after making a near 300-mile trip lasting over five hours, the last thing you want to see if your side lose.

Sadly, that was the fate which befell Dagenham & Redbridge fans on Saturday as 175 of them watched the Essex club lose 1-0 in the National League at Gateshead.

It’s perhaps unsurprising, then, that many took to social media after the match to share their views, including those present at the ground and others following the match elsewhere.

Some believed it was important to remain positive despite the result, while others felt Daggers could have defended Danny Johnson’s goal much better.

Those who did make the long trip were a tad frustrated they got up in the early hours just to watch a defeat, which most feel ended any lingering hopes of automatic promotion.

There was also one who felt Daggers’ current run of form puts them in danger of a hiding against Forest Green Rovers this weekend and their play-off position in jeopardy.

Of course, football is a game of opinions and this article features a varying selection from Daggers fans after Saturday’s loss.
