John Still believes leading Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club to League Two survival this season would rank alongside his greatest achievements.
Behind Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and David Moyes, the 61-year-old is the longest serving manager in the top-four divisions having taking charge of the Daggers in 2004.
Still guided the club to the Football League for the first time in their history back in 2007, and then up to League One in 2010, although they only remained there one season.
Dagenham are now a point away from securing survival in the fourth tier, and considering the amount of injuries they’ve had, this would be an impressive achievement.
"Every season has been tough. The first year I came here I was trying to get everything in place and the second year were two tough years," Still told the Barking and Dagenham Post.
"When I think of the problems we've had this season, this is a massive achievement. If we stay in the league I think it's fantastic testament to the players and the staff here.
“No other club of our size, I believe, could have dealt with it. We've been decimated with injuries. It's been tough and it still will be, but that makes the credit even greater."
