Millwall assistant Kevin Gallen hailed his strikers, while Dagenham boss John Still was left to bemoan his missing forwards at the New Den.
A Darius Henderson hat-trick and a brace from Harry Kane saw Millwall thrash Dagenham 5-0 in their FA Cup third-round reply on Tuesday night - and Gallen has now set his hitmen the challenge of firing the Lions away from relegation trouble.
The shot-shy Lions had scored just once in their previous eight games but with fit-again Henderson now paired with on-loan Tottenham man Kane things are looking up.
"We've been saying we needed a win and to do that we needed some goals," said assistant boss Gallen. "So to score five was a good confidence boost, especially for the forwards.
"We'll see in the next few weeks whether these two guys can score the goals we need.
"We need Darius fit and firing. And Harry doesn't play like an 18-year-old, he's got ability and in my opinion those goals have been coming."
It represents a dramatic turnaround for Millwall after being on the receiving end of a six-goal thrashing themselves at home to Birmingham on Saturday.
But Gallen added: "Ironically, a 6-0 defeat could be a turning point in our season."
Still will be hoping the 5-0 loss can have a similar galvanising effect on his Dagenham side but feels there were mitigating circumstances on the night.
"I thought the scoreline was a bit harsh," said the Daggers boss.
"We were hoping to get to half-time maybe a just a goal down. But we have our three main strikers out injured so we didn't have a focal point for our attack.
"We kept going but I've no complaints about Millwall's win, they were better than us."
