Preview | Dagenham & Redbridge (a)

Words Joe Brayne | Pictures Jonathan Moore

ALTY aim to return to form in the Vanarama National League as we head to the capital to face Dagenham & Redbridge at the Chigwell Construction Stadium this Saturday (3pm).

The Robins (9th, 52pts) have been rocked by a series of injuries in recent games but now face one last road trip before enjoying a trio of home matches.

Although the Daggers (15th, 42pts) find themselves 10 points below Alty in the league, they will be buoyed by strong performances in February that included a 7-1 victory against Oxford City and a draw away to play-off hopefuls Bromley.

The Gaffer 

Second-half resurgence: “The gumption and resilience the lads showed to come back after the break (is inspiring). Southend were very good, but we came back and played our way - which we looked scared to do in the first half. I saw enough in the second half to see the green shoots of recovery.”

Short-term pain, long-term gain: “We are trying to be very careful with returning first-team players. We haven’t rushed back the likes of Justin Amaluzor and Ethan Ross because we know that while it could benefit us short-term with the games that we have had, we know that (proper recovery) will help us more come the end of the season.”

Last time against Dagenham & Redbridge

Altrincham 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge (Chris Conn-Clarke 80’)

Last August – A heartbreaking 98’ equaliser denied the Robins a richly deserved three points in their 2023-24 National League opener at The J. Davidson Stadium.

Conn-Clarke penetrated the Daggers’ defence to put Alty 1-0 up, however, the home side would be victims of the new extra time rules as Harry Phipps levelled the scoreline in the eighth minute of additional time.
