Daggers boss Wayne Burnett was delighted with his side’s never-say-die attitude as they came back to secure a 2-2 draw with Rhys Murphy’s stoppage time leveller at Morecambe on Saturday.
Abu Ogogo had put them in front after 20 minutes but some sloppy defending from the Daggers saw Padraig Amond and Mark Hughes to net in the second half and put the Shrimps ahead.
But the Daggers kept plugging away and made the trip back with a point to show for their efforts when Murphy netted from Zavon Hines’ ball in deep into stoppage time.
“We started reasonably well, we got a goal ahead and we were pretty much in control of the game for large parts,” said Burnett.
“They put a bit of pressure on us in the second half and we didn’t defend particularly well for their two goals but we certainly left it late.”
It’s not the first time the Daggers have left it late this season with Luke Howell netting an equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe United.
And Burnett hailed his young team for their ability to work until the very end, adding: “They are fantastic. I have a group of players who never cease to amaze me, they have a wonderful work ethic and a fantastic spirit.
“They are so young and they never know when to give up. That just showed how hard and well they worked, and they were rewarded in the end.”
