Daggers Just Not Sharp Enough For Assistant Currie

Darren Currie says it feels like Dagenham & Redbridge are failing to make progress after Tuesday’s disappointing home defeat to Boreham Wood.

The Daggers could have gone up to fourth with a win but were instead leapfrogged by their visitors and dropped to seventh as a result of the 3-2 loss.

Dagenham have won just one of their previous six National League games and were also recently knocked out of the FA Trophy at lower league Hereford.

Assistant manager Currie says performances over the festive period were an improvement but Tuesday’s result was a big blow for the Daggers.

“It feels like we’re getting there and then we take a big step back again,” Currie told the club’s YouTube channel.

“We had enough opportunities to win the game (against Boreham Wood). We’ve got to keep reiterating what we’re asking for and working on our organisation.

“We had a 20-minute spell after they scored the third where it looked like we panicked. We gave away possession and that was disappointing.

“It’s frustrating because the last two or three performances have been good and we’ve let ourselves down. It was below the standards that we’ve set recently.”
