Manager Wayne Burnett has said he was very pleased to see Dagenham and Redbridge pick up a home win for the first time in five attempts, even though he knows we can play a lot better than we did in the game.

A two nil victory over York City courtesy of a brace of goals from Joss Labadie left the manager pretty happy at full time, and he told the Official Site that in many ways he felt it was a professional performance from the boys that was designed to get the result rather than anything else.

‘I’m very pleased with the three points, everyone knows our home form hasn’t been great but we’ve managed to get a win. I wouldn’t say we played great, but it was a very professional performance and I’m delighted.’

With Burnett making two changes to the side that faced Cheltenham in our last game, and tweaking the formation slightly, he believed that helped contribute to the win and over the 90 minutes he felt it certainly worked in our favour compared to how they were set up.

‘We changed our shape slightly and it did work, but we weren’t playing with any real fluidity, but we got a good goal at a good stage. We’re not too far away, it’s been very small margins in the previous games and I didn’t see us being under any real pressure.’

The gaffer goes on to say that he doesn’t feel they had too many chances during the game and certainly no moments come to mind where he felt we were lucky at the back, crediting the defence for their performance and for keeping what he thought was a deserved clean sheet as well.

What’s important though is we build on this and having been on a run of not winning at home, he wants us to get on a run now of consecutive victories if we can to really push us up the table and raise confidence further.
