Here's an assessment of how the men from Wetherby Road performed during Saturday's 4-2 loss in East London. PICTURES: MATT KIRKHAM
James Belshaw 6. Made two good saves in a frantic opening, but still will be disappointed to have conceded four. Perhaps fortunate to get away with one when Dagenham had a goal ruled out for handball following his mistake.
Ryan Fallowfield 5. Understandably did not look like he had played with this back-four before. Almost set up a third goal with a marauding run, only for Brendan Kiernan's effort to be ruled out for offside.
Warren Burrell 5. Was caused all kinds of problems by Dagenham's pacy attack. Did save his side going 1-0 down inside five minutes with a goal-line clearance, atoning for his own mistake
Connor Hall 5. Did not look convincing at centre-back for the first time, struggled alongside Warren Burrell with the pace of the Dagenham forwards.
George Smith 5. Replaced by Sam Jones as Simon Weaver looked to get another attacker on. Had a tough time of it defensively against a dangerous home attack.
Brendan Kiernan 7. Town's best player on the day. Linked up well with his team-mates and took his first goal for the club well. Unlucky not to have a brace to his name due to an offside flag.
Josh Falkingham 6. One of his quieter games. Made one crucial tackle in the first half however he was often overrun in midfield.
Jack Emmett 6. Brought into the side for Scott Brown in an attacking move by Simon Weaver and showed a couple of glimpses of his ability.
Joe Leesley 6. Will claim an assist for his part in Town's opener, but ultimately was not at his influential best. Substituted.
Mark Beck 6. Linked up well with Jack Muldoon, who seems to read the big man's flick-ons well. Almost converted a header at the back post, though faded as the game went on.
Jack Muldoon 6. Had another chance to break his duck after latching onto Mark Beck's flick, but couldn't beat Elliot Justham. Looked lively particularly in the first half and set up Town's second.
