Dagenham and Redbridge Preview

Town travel to Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday, looking to bounce back from back to back defeats against Woking and Notts County.

The Daggers also go into the fixture on the back of two defeats, with Tuesday night’s 3-0 home defeat to Boreham Wood following defeat at Halifax last weekend.

Peter Taylor’s side did record an impressive win at Dover in their second outing of the season, having lost out to Woking in the season opener.

Now in his second season in charge, former England Manager Peter Taylor will be looking to improve on his side’s 18th place finish last time out.

Taylor came away the happier of the two Manager’s when the sides met at The CNG Stadium back in March, with Conor Wilkinson claiming a stoppage minute equaliser, though The Daggers’ top scorer has since departed for the 2018/19 National League Winners Leyton Orient.

Highlights

Town’s only previous visit to Victoria Road in October 2018 resulted in a 2-1 defeat, despite Joe Leesley’s late stunner, though Saturday’s hosts have won just one of their last six on home soil.

Simon Weaver will again be without Lloyd Kerry who continues to recover from an ankle injury, while Will Smith misses out through suspension following his red card against Notts County.

Any Town supporters travelling to Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday will be accommodated in the all seated A13 Steel Stand which has catering and bar facilities.

Entry is from 11.45am via turnstiles 9-11 which are accessed via the rear of the main car park, or through the gates from Pondfield Park to the rear of the ground.

Admission is £21 for adults and £15 for concessions.
