Daggers striker Rhys Murphy has had a good week, and he’s hoping to cause more trouble tomorrow as they prepare to host League Two table toppers Rochdale.
The 22-year-old scored in the 2-2 draw at Northampton last weekend before bagging the only goal of the game as they won 1-0 at Southend United on Tuesday.
That double has taken his tally for the season to seven goals and he’s now joint top scorer in the league with York City’s Ryan Jarvis.
And while he’s reaping the rewards of some good service, the former Arsenal youngster feels the hard work in training from all the players is paying off.
“That’s my job – to go and score goals,” said Murphy.
“I felt I should have had at least one more against Southend, so it was bit disappointing, but it’s another goal and another three points.
“I am feeling good at the moment. I am working hard in training just like all the boys and you get your rewards.”
The four points on the road have come after the 2-1 home defeat against Cheltenham Town and Murphy has been pleased with the way they’ve bounced back from the loss.
“It’s been two tough games away from home,” he added. “Ideally we’d like that to be six points, but we’ve come away from both grounds without losing, that’s really positive.”
Tuesday’s result puts them in 13th spot in League Two going into tomorrow’s clash with Keith Hill’s side.
Despite the 12-place gap between the two sides, just six points separate them and Murphy hopes they can continue their solid start to the season this weekend.
“We are in a good bit of form, we are doing well and surprising people and hopefully we can continue ticking along quietly,” he said.
“There are so many teams in and around the top spot. We are aware of that and it’s important to keep on picking up the points, especially away from home and then make sure we are winning our home games. We are back at home on Saturday and hopefully we can push on again.”
