the daggers voice
Will a fresher, revitalised Daggers claim three points?
So after winning our last two games and keeping a clean sheet in both it finally seems that the Daggers have overcome their little blip and are returning to the form that saw us fly high in the opening weeks of the season.
Granted, those wins might have only been against Braintree and North Ferriby which isn't really a test of our promotion credentials, however with Fejiri Okenabirhie and Craig Robson coming back from injury our side will only get stronger.
And this weekend the Daggers are back at Viccy Road to face local rivals Bromley in a 3pm kick-off. In the return metting in September, John Still's side triumphed 3-1 to stay top of the league. But four months on, we have slipped to fourth after a terrible run that in particular saw our home form suffer.
Our visitors are managed by Neil Smith and have lost their last three games, including an FA Trophy exit to Welling United. They sit 13th and their side contains a lot of familiar faces to Daggers fans.......
Bradley Goldberg, Adam Cunnington, Blair Turgott, Louis Dennis and George Porter all used to play for the Daggers, with Turgott also training with us in pre-season. However, Bromley's captain - Rob Swaine - has left to join Billericay, leaving his old side very few in numbers. The fact that the Ravens are plagued with injury will come as a big boost to the Daggers.
And yesterday, Friday 20th January, both teams announced transfers to bolster their team options. Alan Dunne has joined after leaving Leyton Orient, and Brandon Hanlan & Aaron Hayden have also joined them on loan from Charlton and Wolves respectively.
Meanwhile, the Daggers have signed Jake Howells on a permanent transfer and Reading youth defender Jake Sheppard on loan.
