Daggers boss relishing Wembley showpiece

Published Add your comment

Dagenham boss John Still is relishing his side's League Two play-off final against Rotherham at Wembley on May 30 after beating Morecambe 7-2 on aggregate.

The tie was effectively over after the Daggers recorded a thumping 6-0 first-leg victory last Sunday but Morecame refused to lie down in front of their own supporters and earned a 2-1 win.

"We're going to go to Wembley and put in a Dagenham performance - full of strength, power and adventure," said Still.

"We're going to give it everything we've got and we've got nothing to lose."

An 81st-minute volley from midfielder Mark Duffy put the hosts ahead and, after the Daggers drew level four minutes later through Paul Benson, Dave Artell headed home the last-ever goal at Christie Park.

Still added "We didn't want to be too cavalier but we came to score a goal and we did that.

"They threw everything at us but it's been a fantastic two legs and if you look at the four teams in the play-offs there was only a point between us all."
