Goals from Ryan Cresswell and Britt Assombalonga secured the Shrimpers a 2-0 win at Roots Hall and the Scot felt his team were worthy winners.

"It was good to get back to winning ways and I thought we deserved the victory too," Sturrock said. "There were many pleasing aspects out there for me and I thought we did well.

"It was nice to get a clean sheet and to also not get any bookings as that could have caused us a few problems. So overall it's been a good night and, although Dagenham had a few chances in the second half, I thought we did too.

"Our goalkeeper made a couple of good saves and that was also really good to see. He's a good keeper and I know he has it in him but it's about the time frame with him because he hasn't played much football and is playing catch up in the games."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
