Garry Hill took the Trophy exit on the chin against his former club as he saw his side come close to a goal on numerous occasions but it was Peter Taylor’s Dagenham to go through. “I can’t come in after the game and knock the players in respect of effort or commitment or lack of creating chances,” he told BBC…
