Dagenham & Redbridge interim manager Wayne Burnett was happy with a point from his first game in charge following John Still’s departure.

Daggers interim boss Wayne Burnett believes it was a well-deserved point at Bradford City last night.

Luke Howell gave Daggers the lead on after 69 minutes and they were only denied a point four minutes from time through James Hanson’s effort.

And despite missing a penalty which could have made it three points, Burnett, in his first game in charge since Still’s departure, felt the effort from his team was magnificent.

“I said ‘let’s carry that on, nothing needs to change. Let’s go out and express ourselves, try to be creative and play with no fear’. At times we did just that,” said Burnett.

“This is not an easy place to come. I am delighted with the performance and the players’ work-rate.

“It’s difficult when a manager leaves, especially someone like John Still who has left a legacy at this club.

“Bradford had large chunks of the game and probably the better chances but we defended excellently. Our two centre-backs and full-backs were fantastic.”
