You can certainly say Daggers’ summer arrivals are settling in with four of them netting in the 5-2 victory over Southend United last night in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Zavon Hines, Brian Saah, Affy Obafemi and the most recent addition Chris Dickson were all on target in an amazing night which saw Daggers score four goals in eight second half minutes to come from 2-1 behind and progress to the third round.
And coach Darren Currie is delighted they are all making an impact so early on in their Daggers career.
“Tonight most of the new signings scored so that’s nice and it shows they are settled and comfortable in their surroundings,” said Currie.
“It is great to see them all scoring and especially in Chris Dickson getting one with his first start.”
And though disappointed with their start to the second half, where Southend substitute Cauley Woodrow netted twice inside three minutes, Currie was pleased with the response the Daggers issued as they went on the goalscoring spree.
“These games come along once in a while, they aren’t good for the heart if they were week in and week out,” he added.
“At the minute we look so threatening going forward, we have got great pace and lots of goals in the team at the minute
“They got themselves back in the game with two decent goals by the boy Woodrow who is a very good player but this is what we have got at the minute with this group of players.
“They have got great belief in themselves and they never stop going and they find themselves back in the game.”
