After a string of games against promotion rivals the Reds turn their attention to struggling Dagenham & Redbridge.

With the hosts bottom of the table, John Coleman takes his team south knowing they’ll be desperate to take three points.

The Opposition

Last season was one of mixed fortunes for the Daggers but 2015/16 has proven to be an even tougher campaign.

They’ve faced a season of struggle in League Two and find themselves propping up the Football League.

Manager Wayne Burnett left earlier in the season to be replaced by former boss John Still. His job is now to mastermind a great escape.


Still returned to the Daggers on January 1st for a third spell having taken charge in 1992 and 2004. That second spell lasted nine years and saw the club promoted from the Conference to League One.

Between 2013 and December 2014 he managed Luton Town back to the Football League as Conference champions, his third Conference title with three different sides.

He left Luton at the end of last year and was swiftly reappointed by his old club and tasked with guiding them to League Two safety.

One to Watch

He may be beyond his 40th birthday but striker Jamie Cureton is still a potent goal threat at League Two level.

A former England youth international with an eye for goal, his average is one goal in every three games in a 20-year career which has seen him play in all four top flight divisions in the English leagues.

Cureton, who lists 15 clubs on his CV, scored 20 goals in his first season with the Daggers in 2014/15 and has six so far this season.
