“From a player’s perspective I feel that we let ourselves down at Wrexham,” said Falkingham.

“We’re capable of a much better performance and we only have ourselves to blame for passing up the opportunity to progress.

“It’s all about our reaction now and I know that there will be a positive one. Dagenham are maybe in a false position, but even at this stage they’ll be fighting for every point because of where they are in the table.

“We know it will be tough, but we have to go there and get back to doing what we’re best at; looking to pass the ball, dominate territory and possession.”
