Still on Exeter v Dagenham

"For an away performance, very, very pleased. Very pleased, it was difficult conditions for both teams.

"That never say die attitude, that team ethic, that everyone playing for the team. I thought it became evident the longer the game went on.

"I think when your confidence is low, to get back-to-back wins is a fantastic thing."
