The hosts led 3-0 only to see their lead cut to 3-2 before holding on to clinch victory after a thrilling finish.

"I thought we deserved a point for the way we came back, we showed a lot of character and could have easily got something from the game," Parkinson said.

"But we left ourselves with too much to do. We should have never gone three goals behind, we conceded some bad goals.

"We've had a good start to the season but we should be performing better against a side like Dagenham. No disrespect, but we weren't at the races in the first half.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game, but I'm disappointed we've not got anything from the match."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
