York manager Gary Mills was a proud man after his players sealed their first win in four league games with a 3-2 triumph over Dagenham.

The Minstermen had previously failed to score in four successive games at Bootham Crescent, but a brace from Ashley Chambers and a second-half strike from Matty Blair put an end to that record.

"I thought we deserved the win, we were the better side", said Mills. "We managed to get our noses in front and we've scored three goals at home and that has been coming. We'll be disappointed we've conceded two but you'll not see a lot of strikes like that for their second week in, week out.

"We've got three points, it's fantastic. We've threatened to match our away form at home on occasions and we could have quite easily done that three or four times, but we've managed it. We deserved it. The lads have worked tirelessly against a side that have been in good form.

"We're all happy, we're all smiling and we'll enjoy tonight and then we'll get ready for the next game.

"It's a great three points, with three great goals and everyone will go away happy. We've not lacked any confidence, we've gone out from the word go and we've played with confidence. We were ready to put it right and my players have shown how much they've grown in the past twelve months."

Dagenham boss John Still was left frustrated after his side's six-game unbeaten run in League Two came to an end. Despite watching Luke Wilkinson bag a brace, Still labelled the performance as the worst produced by his charges this term on the back of consecutive victories over Bradford and Chesterfield.

"I thought that was our worst performance of the season," he said. "Earlier in the season we played well but still managed to lose. I just thought it was a poor performance.

"We had no energy, I'm not sure why. We've done nothing different than we normally do. We lacked energy, we lacked defensive stability. Chris (Lewington) hasn't had an awful lot to do but we never reached the tempo we did in the previous games. I thought our organisation, which is usually spot on, was poor.

"When you come to the games you've got to come with all the ingredients and we've not come with any. Both first-half goals were poor to concede. Two goals away from home and not playing well I'd be happy with that. I'm not happy with the three goals we've conceded though. We played poorly. Should I moan? No I shouldn't. Will I moan? Yes I will."
