Drew Talbot was left to reflect on Chesterfield’s failure to keep Dagenham at bay in the minutes following Jack Lester’s equaliser on Saturday.
He said: “You can’t get yourself back in the game and then concede two or three minutes later.
“I don’t think it’s a lack of effort - it’s just something that’s not clicking.
“We try and put pressure on people, especially at home. It was just one of those days, I guess.
“I think if we play like we have been playing, the results will come. We’ve just got to keep going and see where it takes us.”
Talbot was impressed with Luis Boa Morte’s performance on his debut.
“He did well - to say he’s not played for a while - and he can only be a benefit for us,” he said.
