Daggers manager frustrated by fluctuating levels of performance in recent weeks

Dagenham & Redbridge return to their Victoria Road base this weekend, with boss John Still looking for his team to start putting in some consistently good performances.

The Essex club welcome struggling Guiseley on Saturday, before playing host to National League leaders Dover Athletic on Tuesday night.

Daggers go into the games off the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss at Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, with Still irate at his team’s display on Merseyside.

The Daggers boss felt his side did not reach the highs of recent weeks at Prenton Park, and knows they must do better in their two home games this week.

But Still is equally aware that there is little point in Daggers turning a good display in for one game if they are unable to match those levels on their next outing.

“I’ll evaluate the performance at Tranmere, watch the game again and decide the next step,” he told the club website.

“What we can’t do is go from high to low, like we did at Tranmere; our levels of performance have to be more consistent, but it’s not at the moment.”

While Daggers are at home this weekend, the loss at Tranmere saw the Essex club clock up a 10th away game without a win in all competitions.

Not since their first away game of the season at Boreham Wood in August have Daggers won on the road.

It is a worrying run of form away from home that may ultimately harm the Victoria Road outfit’s prospects of promotion this term.

But manager Still does not seem overly concerned by his team’s current struggles on the road.

“If you put in the right performances, you get the right results,” he added. “We’ve had some tough away games and got good points from them, so I don’t look at that.

“You just have to get enough points at the end of the season to go up; when you get them and how you get them, I don’t worry too much about that.

“The performance at Tranmere was in line with the result, which was disappointing.”

Two wins at home this week would certainly help Still and his troops move on from that loss at Tranmere.

And a pair of victories would also help get Daggers’ promotion push back on track.
