Morecambe manager Jim Bentley praised his substitutes after they inspired the Shrimps' dramatic late 2-1 victory at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Sub Ryan Williams scored the winning goal moments after Jack Redshaw had set up Stewart Drummond to bag the first to bring the visitors back into the game.

Bentley said: "I always tell the substitutes to keep themselves warm and make sure they are in a position to turn the game if they come on.

"The lads all did that and I thought they were superb and changed the game in our favour. They were really sharp and got straight into the game and did exactly what I wanted and inspired us to a superb win.

"We haven't had the best of records away from home recently so it was an important win as well. Every point is vital at the minute and the lads showed great courage and determination to come back into the game after going a goal behind.

"I didn't think it was going to be our day after that but we battled all the way to the end for the win.''

Daggers boss John Still found it hard to take after seeing his side get nothing from the game.

He said: "It was a poor game I have to admit and it never really got going - even after we took the lead.

"If I'm being honest, I didn't think we played well enough to win the game but I am obviously disappointed that we didn't get a point after going into the last 10 minutes in the lead.

"We didn't produce enough opportunities to get a second goal and when you do that you are always vulnerable and that is what happened in the end. We will have to take it on the chin and work hard in the week because we have another important game against Plymouth next week that we have to prepare for."
