Togetherness and quality defeats Bromley

Image
It was a relatively short trip over the Dartford crossing for The Daggers as they hoped to make it four wins out of five. However, Bromley stood in their way a team who were in search of a win after back to back defeats. Play commenced with the home side but their Essex counterparts were working hard off the ball early on with Wilkinson especially hassling the back line. The hosts won the first set piece of the half as Pennell was put under pressure forcing him to concede the corner kick, but luckily for him it came to nothing.

Another Daggers defender sprung into action worrying the keeper early on as Ben Nunn's long range effort hit the top of the net as it just sailed over. The skipper helped his side out in attack again as his cross found Balanta but his attempt didn't trouble Gregory between the sticks. The Ravens proved a threat on the counter as Manny Onariase was involved in an effort that saw him throw himself at the ball to deny the home side's new loan signing …

An away trip to Bromley awaits as Dagenham and Redbridge look to make it above the dotted line come Saturday evening, as they watch 'I'm a celeb' resting ready to make it back to back wins on Tuesday. Before they can do that though they will have to beat today's opposition who sit in the bottom half of the table just five points better off than The Daggers. So those thoughts of Harry Redknapp facing the bushtucker trial will be put on hold as a win in Terry Harris' words 'will make things look a lot better' for a Dagenham side where things are just getting better.
On the contrary, Neil Smith is hoping to 'turn things around' after a bad run of form has seen them slip down the table just five points clear of the drop zone. He added that he wants to 'put on a show' at Hayes Lane, therefore Dagenham will have to be switched on at the back and work hard in midfield to stop the home side from playing. A danger to the visitors is Frankie Sutherl…

Exceptional Elliot!

It was a special day at Victoria Road as the club paid tribute to Dave Andrews a man who adored Dagenham and Redbridge and was instrumental in the club's merger and success. The Daggers faced AFC Fylde on the special day who were unbeaten on the road this season and stood sixth in the league. The hosts got the game underway but just over thirty seconds later Fylde found themselves in front after a well worked move forced a fabulous save from Justham but it wasn't enough as Andy Bond fired home for the visitors - it was a nightmare start for Dagenham!

The very slow start continued for the home side as AFC Fylde were playing them off the park and just a lot sharper all over the pitch. All over the pitch that was apart from when it came to the keepers as Elliot Justham pulled off another great save as Gime Toure's great work saw him cut in and have a shot on goal. The home side were living dangerously as this time Nick Haughton was played through as Dagenham were dispossesse…

AFC Fylde preview

It has been two weeks since The Daggers were last in National League action two weeks ago and the last time they hosted a game in the competition was 27th October. Therefore this game is eagerly awaited as National League football returns to Victoria Road after a fairly long while. Fylde were also knocked out of the FA Cup before the first round and are eager to get back to the competition as they push for the play - offs. The visitors relish away days as they are unbeaten so far this season on the road but they will be looking like Dagenham to get back on track after a loss in their last game.

Both sides could climb the table with a win as The Daggers could climb out of the bottom four and AFC Fylde could climb into the top four. Peter Taylor spoke earlier in the week saying '' We are slowly but surely improving the team, with more experience and better players, now slowly but surely we have just got to climb the table''. If The Daggers, or shall I say, when The Dagg…
