Ryan Peters: 'For 30 minutes, it was probably one of our best performances'

‘Frustrated’ was the word used yet again by Ryan Peters to sum up his emotions after Maidenhead United’s 4-1 loss to Dagenham & Redbridge, a match in which the Magpies dominated the start of according to the assistant manager.

Prior to kick off on Saturday, no team had boasted more goals than Daryl McMahon’s Daggers in the National League this season, and those bragging rights remained after the final whistle as the side took their tally to 33.

It was after the first goal went in that the floodgates opened and the side began to make inane mistakes, Peters believes, with the Magpies muting their sharp visitors for the first half hour of the game and even having opportunities of their own down the other end.

Speaking to media officer Grace Scott, Peters said: “I’m frustrated, again. It’s strange because up until 30 minutes it was probably one of our best performances. We were solid, compact, and were creating chances for fun.

“A defensive mistake led to the first goal and the floodgates opened. It was two basic errors that led to their goals [in the first half] – it wasn’t like they carved us open.

“There is a lot of work to be done defensively.”

Peters added: “This is the first game in a while – if we take out the FA Cup game – the scoreline has been as heavy as it is. So, we need to go back and reflect but we’re not going to ease off the gas.

“We’re going to try and get ourselves right as quick as we can.”
