Wayne Burnett and Darren Currie have both spoken of their disappointment at conceding the late goal to Exeter in today’s game.

The Daggers opened the scoring after only 20 minutes and looked reasonably comfortable favourites to take all three points in the game, although that’s not to say Exeter didn’t have chances themselves, but it took them until the 80th minute before they could draw level and it was very unfortunate on the team who were seeking their second win in the league of the season.

Wayne Burnett said firstly to the press following the game, that it was fortunate that we were gifted the lead following an error by their goalkeeper but he thought we were worthy of the win overall until we let the game slip and failed to capitalise and go further ahead based on our first half performance.

He concedes however that Exeter had the best of the second half, but didn’t really make that count either until the final ten.

‘We’ve let the game slip away, it’s a shame because on another day we might have scored more than just the one goal in the first half. Exeter were struggling to live with us but we didn’t manage to get that second goal and we’ve been punished for that. We ran out of gas in the second half.’

Darren Currie himself told the official site that he felt that Jack Connors did very well after a shaky start but he had to agree with Burnett in commenting that we really didn’t make the most of our opportunities in the first half and nor did we capitalise properly on our first half dominance.

Had we found that second goal in the first period it may have been too big a mountain to climb for Exeter despite how they rallied after the half time break.
