Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Sam Saunders has put his incredible goalscoring run down to the attacking tactics of manager John Still.

Saunders has been named League 2 Powerade Player of the Month award for April after scoring in five consecutive games.

His hot streak almost led his Daggers side to the Play Offs, but their hopes were dashed when they lost against Shrewsbury Town last weekend.

The right-winger, 25, said: "Five goals in five games at the end was a nice way to finish the season.

"During the run-in the gaffer said to me, 'We have to attack games and win games' so he pushed the two wide players on to try and make us play as high up the pitch as possible.

"I scored a couple of one-off goals and also nipped in at the far post for a few tap-ins.

He added: "I set a target of double figures for the season so to get 14 League goals in total and also provide 13 assists is something I'm delighted with."

Former Queens Park Rangers trainee Saunders, who joined Dagenham in 2005, will be out of contract at the end of the season.

He said: "I don't know what I will be doing next year. I've just come off the disappointment of not making the Play-Offs so I haven't thought too much about it.

"The boss told me that if another club came in for me then he wouldn't stand in my way.

"Everyone wants to move on and progress their career and I'm no different."
