Manager Wayne Burnett was delighted to see us take the two goal victory over Bury at the weekend as although we maybe rode our luck, he knows it was a great response from the players given our preparation for the game was less than perfect.

Speaking to the Official Site following the full time whistle the manager explained.

‘I thought it was an excellent performance. I was so proud of the players, it’s been a difficult week in terms of training. Our training ground hasn’t been very good and we’ve trained down Dagenham Central Park one day. Under the circumstances I was really proud with how well they performed.’

With our tendency to leak goals this season, Burnett knows that the clean sheet was very important for confidence but what was most important was the three points, and in terms of luck with them hitting the bar a few times and having two ruled out for offside – luck has gone against us often enough this campaign it’s nice to have some go for us.

He also had praise for the new formation that we’d been working on.

‘It allows us to play two up front, allows us to play strong centrally as well. It’s something we’ve worked on a little bit and it means we can be a bit flexible.’

Darren Currie also admitted a sense of relief at full time and he was delighted to pick up back to back league wins again.

‘We’ve come under fire recently but it’s a results business. On the back of the disappointing result at Southport, we’ve won two games scoring six goals so everyone’s happy.’

Like the manager, Currie also admitted that after a bright start, Bury shaded the first half and had some good chances of their own, but second half we definitely stepped up more and made a proper fight of it and we did take our chances when they came along, and away from home that’s how you have to do it.
