Striker Zavon Hines has looked back on his goals in our two most recent matches.

The 24 year old scored his first league goal for Dagenham and Redbridge in the last league game against Accrington, and scored himself a brace in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy game against Southend last night.

Speaking to the Official Site following his recent run of form in front of goal, the player said that he felt he was starting to strike up a real partnership with fellow forward Rhys Murphy as they are both beginning to understand the type of forward runs that the other are likely to make, and it’s clearly having a good effect for us in the final third.

Clearly, the game against Accrington wasn’t our best performance of the season, but Hines believes that still coming out with a solid three points bodes well for the future, as if Dagenham can learn to win when we aren’t at our best, that can only help us come the end of the season.

‘Rhys is very clever in the runs he makes, so it’s been going well. I’ve always backed my own ability but I’m just happy to be playing. The gaffer has given me a lot of confidence, so I’m enjoying my football at the moment.’

In other forward news, striker Louis Dennis celebrated his 21st birthday today.

He’s a product of our Academy and has previously had loan spells out at Welling United and Bedfont Town for first team experience, he then went on to sign his first professional contract with us and spent most of 2011/12 on loan at Grays Athletic for further first team experience.

He made his debut for the club back in January 2013 against Wycombe and has since appeared a number of times from the bench, finding the net in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy game against Colchester back in September where we won 4-1.
