Daggers Not Blunt Believes Optimistic Manager Taylor

Peter Taylor didn’t expect too much too soon from his Dagenham side.

Difficulties off the pitch means the club lost most of their players over the summer and the former Leicester City manager knew what he was walking in to.

Their two games so far has seen two narrow defeats and on Tuesday night they went down 2-1 against Maidstone United.

Taylor knew there wouldn’t be any quick fixes and says patience with a young group is what’s required.

“It was always going to take time with what’s been happening at the club,” said the manager to the club’s YouTube channel.

“Losing your too striker two days before the start of the season doesn’t help but we knew this wasn’t going to be an overnight thing.

“It’s two defeats but there have been positives to take.

“We creates chances which is a good sign but we didn’t take them and that’s why we’ve not come away with something.

“We should have scored more than one goal. We tested their goalkeeper but we are in games.

“We have played two good sides so far and in both games we have done good things.”
