Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett hailed his side’s attacking display as they came away from Accrington Stanley with a 2-1 win.
After a goalless first half, Zavon Hines scored his first for the club as the visitors launched a quick counter attack, and Rhys Murphy scored for the third successive game to put Burnett’s side in control.
James Gray pulled one back in the 90th minutes to ensure an anxious few moments for the Daggers, but Burnett always thought they were in control of the game.
“I thought we played reasonably well tonight, we passed the ball well at times,” said Burnett.
“When you score people’s mindsets change a little bit and we got on top of the game. The first half was quite tight we had one or two chances but so did they.
“We knew it was going to be a very tough game. Up until we scored it was a very tight and close game but we took a hold of the game once we scored and I couldn’t see us getting beat from there.”
Burnett was naturally delighted with the goals scored by Hines and Murphy, and felt it was counter attacking football at its very best.
“When you have players that are a fantastic attacking threat like we do there is always opportunities to potentially create chances,” he added.
“We have got pace in the team and it was two well taken goals where we have broke very quickly and it was classic counter attacking football. We were in cruise control a little bit but it was a nervy few minutes at the end there.”
