Daggers boss Wayne Burnett admits his side cannot rest on their laurels after a solid start to their League Two season.
The Victoria Road side have picked up 10 points from their eight games to date and though the 42-year-old is content with their start, admits its too early to get carried away.
“We are doing okay. You look at the league table and we are above teams who you wouldn’t think we’d be above,” said Burnett.
“But we have only played eight games and that’s not even a fifth of the way through a season so there is still a hell of a long way to go.”
Daggers are now unbeaten in four games and make a return to their home against Bury tomorrow, where they also remain undefeated.
And Burnett feels his side, who have scored in every game bar one, have to make lives awkward for anyone who visits Victoria Road.
“We have got to make it difficult for teams to come here and the pleasing thing for me is that we have scored in all our games apart from Mansfield,” he added.
“We are creating chances and that’s how you win football matches. I’ve said before that if you want to be successful you need to capitalise on your home games. We want to continue our run and not let any team take anything off us.
“We are now unbeaten in four games which is nice but I think we have to do better away from home, while we’ve been okay at home.”
Burnett is unlikely to make major changes for the visit of Bury, but Matt Saunders is a slight doubt for the match after picking up a knock in training this week.
Meanwhile Josh Scott, Louis Dennis and Ian Gayle all returned to training this week and have suffered no ill effects and could play a part.
However, the Daggers boss believes there is plenty of pressure on those in the starting XI to perform, otherwise they’ll be missing out.
“People now know that they have to perform otherwise they are going to be people coming in who are ready and eager to play,” he said. “ All of them should want to play. But the players that have had their chance of late have performed well.”
