Dagenham & Redbridge manager Daryl McMahon believes young defender Will Wright can become a top player after making his 100th appearance for the club. 

The 23-year-old reached the milestone in the Daggers 1-1 draw away to Stockport County and even picked up an assist in the match. 

The boss was keen to praise the former Colchester United academy product who is fast becoming a main stay in the starting line-up. 

“I think his improvement has been phenomenal in the last three or four months, he's been outstanding, and he’s another one that I think is now really believing in himself. 

“He’s got all the attributes to be a really good player, he has cut out a few little errors that I felt he had in his game, as most young players do.

“His performances, his character, his leadership, his attitude and mentality is top draw and I still don’t think we’re seeing anywhere near the best of Will Wright either. 

“Will has still got so much to improve on and he can kick on to a higher level without a shadow of a doubt.
