DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE V GUISELEY
Saturday 18th February 2017 - 3pm
Vanarama National League
Back in August, the Daggers' outclassed Guiseley in a match which got our season properly underway. Now in February, the return fixture takes place and also marks the annual 'Anti-Racism' festival as we look to go level on points with leaders' Lincoln City.
Guiseley sit 20th and the match will seem like a comprehensive home victory however it is imperative that we keep our focus and remain professional. We will be without Luke Guttridge although have made a loan signing which will hopefully bolster our side.
It is now five wins in a row for us and we seem to be getting better each week. With this game being followed by further home clashes with Bromley and Maidstone in the next two Tuesday's - there is a massive chance for us to be top by the end of the month.
Since 2017 has came our form has been scintillating. We have beaten Braintree, North Ferriby, Tranmere, Chester and Southport, and have only conceded three goals in the process. Guiseley are most similar to Southport and hopefully we defeat them. If we are to get promoted, then only a win is good enough.
Of course, this weekend marks the annual Daggers against Racism Day, which is a fantastic initiative and involves lots of exciting events around the club aswell as slashed prices. Last year, however, we lost to Yeovil but hopefully we do better this time as we tend to do well in this fixture.
PREDICTION: 4-0 Daggers with Hawkins x2, Whitely and JMD scoring.
