Doe backs Dagenham boss Burnett

Dagenham & Redbridge defender Scott Doe has offered his backing to Daggers’ interim-manager Wayne Burnett, reports Sky Sports.

Burnett replaced manager John Still in February this year, after the long serving boss left the club to take over at Blue Square Premier side, Luton Town.

Burnett navigated the side to League Two safety, despite a final-day defeat to York.

The former Huddersfield and Grimsby midfielder won just one of their final nine league games but Doe is confident the current boss is the man for the job as he looks ahead to an improved season next year.

24-year old Doe joined the Daggers in 2009 after a couple of years in non-league football with Weymouth, the centre back is now one of the clubs longest serving players, and played 50 games for the club this season.

He told London 24: “I hope Wayne gets the job. He can bring in his own players and do his own thing.

“We’ve battled and beaten some of the bigger teams in this league, so we know we can do it. Obviously we want to finish as high as possible.”

A couple of days ago, the interim-manager made it known publicly that he’s ready for the challenge of taking the job at Victoria Road on a permanent basis.

“Everyone has been really supportive and the board have been brilliant.”

Burnett told BBC London 94.9 “We’ll sit down and hopefully have a chat and see where we go from there.”

“I have made it quite open and hopefully I will be here next year and we can do better than we have done in the last two seasons.”
