Still Unbeaten! Daggers Boss John Takes A Point From Eastleigh Trip

John Still admits a point was “probably right” as Dagenham drew 2-2 with Eastleigh this afternoon at the Silverlake Stadium.

Corey Whitely found the net in either half, opening the scoring and then bravely converting a penalty to make it 2-2 after Eastleigh had fought back.

Still is thrilled with 7 points from the club’s first 3 Vanarama National League fixtures against Barrow, Boreham Wood and this one this afternoon in Hampshire.

“We got the goal in the second half and we just keep trying to play and find that third to win it,” said the Daggers manager.

“It was a match which could easily have gone either way in the end but we’re not upset with a point because they are a good side with some very good players and I like what they’re doing this season. They’

“We were 2-1 down at half-time and we were doing alright - we had to keep playing and keep playing and keep playing and I was sure if we did it might open up.

“You see, we’ve got enough good attacking players at the club to score goals, that’s something we’re proud of and an area of the pitch that we are strong in I feel as a manager.

“We ground Eastleigh down and away from home, I’m delighted. We’ve shown we can come from behind now, and that we don’t think we have to question our desire whatsoever.

“We’ve got to be happy with the start but we’re not far in yet and that could all change!”
