the daggers voice
It's taken over 300 days, two managers and 17 games, but Dagenham & Redbridge FINALLY have a home league win this season.
Having lost to Yeovil Town last week we faced an even bigger game as we took on 23rd-placed York City. Even though we collected a point in midweek at Notts County, this game was a must win if we had even the slightest chance of survival.
Aswell as this, I had a much better feeling about this fixture. We had won both of our last two home games against the Minstermen by two goals to nil so had a relatively good record against them, and unlike last week thought our chances of winning were very high.
That morning, with my mind firmly focused on the crucial clash which would take place that afternoon, I typed up my preview, watched some youtube videos and watched television, before leaving for training at five past ten.
After training I made my way towards Nan who was waiting. We leisurely walked through the park before I would go home and change. We would then sharply leave at about quarter to one.
Following all this me and Nan left alongside Mum and Zac who were heading a similar route to the library. We arrived at Daggers shortly after and immediately pondered what to eat, eventually deciding on the chipshop we had come to love in recent weeks.
As we left the train, I noticed around ten York fans behind us, chatting in typical northern whimsicality.
