Daggers manager Wayne Burnett was happy with the 2-1 win over Bury, but admitted they were ‘hopeless’ in the opening period.
In a poor first half showing from both teams Daggers held the 1-0 lead after Afolabi Obafemi netted his first goal for the club two minutes before the break.
Rhys Murphy made it four league goals for the season with the second after 52 minutes, but the hosts had to sweat late on after Anton Forrester’s penalty three minutes from time following Billy Bingham’s handball.
And though not pleased with the performance for the second week in succession, Burnett was naturally delighted to see his side pick up the three points which moved them up to 12th in the League Two table
“I am delighted with the result, the performance wasn’t great but overall we did okay,” said Burnett
“I thought we were hopeless in the first half if I am being perfectly honest with you. But it shows that we are getting there slowly because we’ve not played particularly well and we were 1-0 up.
“We were a bit fortunate but we’ve come on in the second half and I felt we passed it better and probably deserved to win.
Burnett didn’t get a clear view the handball for the penalty which his side conceded but insists his side have to be braver.
“I didn’t really see the handball but he’s given it and it was a bit nervy towards the end,” he added.
“At 2-0 you expect us to be in cruise control and dictate the play but we didn’t, they got back in it and it was little nervy towards the end.
“I said to the players after the game you have got to be a little bit braver at times, it’s easier to play when you are 4 or 5-0 up or down because there is no pressure on you.
“But when you have that 2-0 lead you have to be brave and I think we tried to be but we are young, we are still progressing, developing and maturing.”
