Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett was happy to stop the rot at table toppers Chesterfield on Sunday, though was frustrated to not come away with the three points.

The Daggers had lost three games on the spin going into the encounter but couldn’t reap the rewards after Sam Hird’s first half dismissal, while Zavon Hines also missed a penalty.

To top that off they fell behind to a Marc Richards penalty from the hosts, only for skipper Abu Ogogo to come up with a fine strike for the equaliser.

And despite feeling they were worthy of the win at the Proact Stadium, Burnett was pleased with his side’s improved performance considering their recent run.

“I thought we looked positive on the front foot and had a bit more ‘oomph’ about us,” said Burnett.

“I can’t fault the lads, they worked incredibly hard and I thought it was a good performance considering we have had three not so good results. But I actually felt we should have won today. We had enough chances to win the game.”

“I said to the boys it is going to take a big effort from everyone because that is what squads and teams are about. The players that came in did very well.”
