Still: Pleased to bag point
John Still satisfied with Dagenham's efforts after they came away from AFC Wimbledon with a 2-2 draw.
The hosts fell behind to a Michael Spillane header after Dwight Gale had seen his early penalty saved by Dons keeper Seb Brown, but they took the lead courtesy of first-half goals from Jack Midson and Byron Harrison before Luke Howell equalised.
Still said: "We got off to a dream start with the penalty and you hope they go in. Then if you get a second goal it changes the emphasis. We didn't get that and went 2-1 down. We deserved that for defending poorly.
"We were much better in the second half and took it to them. It was a good performance away from home, and you can never be disappointed with an away draw but you play to win. I'm pleased with the second-half performance but disappointed with the first.
"We don't have the most experienced team but what we do have is lots of energy. We feel we've got goals in this team. Dwight will be disappointed with the penalty but he's very sharp and very bright and there are goals to come from him,
"They've brought in some decent players and if we have a weakness it's that we can't do that. We battled hard to come back from a goal behind so I can't be disappointed with that."
