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."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
