Football - Saunders hopes he's opened goalscoring floodgates


PA Sport

Dagenham midfielder Matt Saunders hopes his strike on Saturday is the start of things to come after setting his sights on a greater goalscoring contribution.

Saunders bagged his first of the season at Plainmoor to level matters against Torquay but it was not enough for his side to come away with any reward as Abu Ogogo's own goal handed the hosts a 2-1 victory.

Saunders admits his goal provided little joy in the overall light of defeat and now wants to add to his tally while, at the same time, helping the Daggers come away with something to show for their efforts.

"I feel in previous games I've come close to scoring with a few strikes and it was a relief to be honest to get on the scoresheet," he told Daggers Player. "Hopefully now I've got one I'll start to get a few more.

"When you score and don't get anything out of the game it kind of gets forgotten but if it's a goal that gets you a point or a goal which wins a game or helps win a game, you get more recognition for it."
