Midfielder Matt Robinson claimed assists on all three Daggers goals in their 3-2 win over Chester.

Robinson combined well with Charlee Adams in the middle of the park and teed up both of Fejiri Okenabirhie’s goals.

And his tempting ball into the box led Andy Halls to head into his own net for the late Dagenham winner at Victoria Road.

Robinson said: “‘Fey’ is on flames at the moment. He’s doing very well. I think with a couple of the players leaving it has given him a bit more licence and freedom to express himself.

“He’s the focal point and thriving under the pressure. The first one, Fey did a lot of the work, the second one he called last minute. I was going to shoot and he called ‘set’ and so I did and the third one I just tried to put it in the right areas between the defenders and the goal.

“I’ve seen a couple of our players there, unfortunately for their player he has headed it into the top bin, so we’ll take that.

“I thought we played well for long spells in the first half and I thought we had the better of the first half but come in 1-1 which was a bit of a setback.

“We talked in the dressing room and said we were basically going to crack on and do the same thing again.

“Obviously they scored again which was a bit against the plan but we battled away and came away with the three points.”
