Today, The Daggers travel to The Shay to hopefully destroy that 💯% record which the Yorkshire side boast. This record was kept in tact after a 2-0 victory over Hartlepool on Tuesday in which Staunton and Sho - Silva netted. The two of them didn’t score against Ebbsfleet in a 4-1 win which means every Halifax goal this season has come from a different goalscorer - 6 in total. This statistic goes for Dagenham also, though the number of goals today’s visitors have scored totals to two with Brundle and Balanta getting those. So both sides have a spread of goals throughout their team but The Shay the more prolific, perhaps due to their level of opposition whom make up the bottom two.
My Daggers XI
In terms of Dagenham’s starting XI I would tweak it slightly from the side that won at The Crabble starting Grant for Quigley to start with. Personally I feel Quigley just lacks anticipation and Grant hasn’t had a chance other than two late substitute appearances to prove himself this season. Secondly, I would bring Odametey in for Matt Robinson as I feel Harold just seems more effective in the transition from defence to attack as he drives forward with power. Finally, I would give Liam Gordon his first game of the season as he is again great at driving forward impacting the attack and I hope he is given a shot at cementing that left back position.
Last time these two sides met was at Victoria Road and it was a fiery 1-1 draw which saw two red cards as well as goals. Josh Staunton and Ben Nunn were both dismissed either side of the two goals which Munns and Clarke netted - Jack Munns took the lead on the 60th minute before Clarke equalised with his side down to ten.
I reckon The Daggers will topple Halifax in their own backyard today to make it two wins on the trot and make that 💯% record no more. I must point out I predicted 1-2 to Dagenham last time out so put a bet on this if you can.
