Still takes it on chin

Dagenham manager John Still had no complaints about the last-gasp penalty which saw his side pegged back a 1-1 draw at London rivals Leyton Orient. Orient substitute Paul-Jose Mpoku was hauled down by Femi Ilesanmi, who was subsequently sent off, leaving Scott McGleish to fire home from the spot. McGleish's 15th goal of the season cancelled out Danny Green's 12th-minute opener for the Daggers and Still said: "It seemed we would get all three points, but it was definitely a penalty, so I've got no complaints. "We frustrated Orient and their crowd got on their backs. They tried to play out from the back, but they kept giving the ball to us. "Our supporters know what they get from our team is everybody giving every ounce of what they've got, and that's what they saw. "As I said, I've no complaints about the penalty or the sending off. It's not always the best rule, but it's the one that's there and that we live by and if I'd been the referee I would have sent him off."
