Daggers had loanee Luke Norris to thank for yet another comeback as they secured a point in a 1-1 draw against Essex rivals Southend United on Tuesday night at Victoria Road.
And although boss Wayne Burnett is frustrated at not making the most of their home advantage, he’s pleased the Daggers are showing plenty of belief after a indifferent set of results of late.
“It is frustrating. It’s two home games and we are normally good at home but you have to look at it as two games unbeaten,” said Burnett.
“But it’s just nice to have the habit of not losing and that’s what we’ve done.
“We haven’t had the best of festive periods but the never-say-die attitude from this bunch of players was in evidence again. They never gave up tonight or on Saturday so there are positives.”
The pitch may well have been in good condition considering the amount of rain over the last few days, but the heavens opened once again in the second half.
And just like on Saturday, it brought about a Daggers revival having gone behind to Kevan Hurst’s scrappy 53rd minute opener.
“We seem to be doing alright in the rain!” Burnett remarked.
“I thought it was a tight contest which could have gone either way, but I thought overall a draw was probably a fair result.”
