Burnett rues lack of scoring touch

28 October 2012

Dagenham first-team coach Wayne Burnett is looking to find the key that will unlock goal scoring form at Victoria Road as the Daggers were held to a 0-0 draw with Aldershot.

The points were shared in a lacklustre match where both sides cancelled each other out over the 90 minutes.

"If I am honest with you, it wasn't the most entertaining game, very few chances created by both teams," Burnett said. "We know we have to do better at home but we didn't create any chances out there.

"Aldershot didn't create that many either and we know we can play better. It actually looked like two teams in desperate need of some points.

"It as a very tough game, with two teams really having a battle."

Dean Holdsworth's side created very few chances in the match with Adam Makki having free kick parried away by Chris Lewington in the first half.

Danny Hylton had a glorious opportunity to give the visitors the lead 10 minutes into the second half after some poor Dagenham defending but the 23 year-old toe-poked wide of goal.

"It was a good point away from home, we need to try and build on this to get momentum to start climbing up the league," the Aldershot manager said.

"It was difficult out there. Credit to the boys, we defended well against a good Dagenham side and we gave a good account of ourselves and we came away with a result.

"We didn't fold, we had our chances in the second half and if we can convert we won't be where we are right now. There are plenty of positives to take out of this, a clean sheet, and now we look forward to our next match."
