Dagenham boss John Still believes his side are starting to recover from their "horrendous" run of injuries this season.

Having progressed into the third round of the FA Cup last Tuesday, the Daggers ended a nine-match losing streak in League Two at the weekend with a deserved 1-1 draw at promotion-chasing Burton.

It represents the first time since August that Still's side have avoided defeat in successive matches, although they remain rooted to the foot of the Football League.

Performances have not been up to scratch since Dagenham's relegation from League One last season, but a lengthy injury list has played a big part in the club's fortunes.

Mark Arber (hernia), Damien McCrory (ankle), Luke Howell (knee), Rob Edmans (broken leg) and Sam Williams (knee) remain on the treatment table, but the dire situation has certainly eased and Still can expect to see all but the latter rejoin his ranks sooner rather than later.

He said: "We've had absolutely horrendous injury problems this season, but we're getting players back now and we're looking like the team I know we are."
