Goalkeeper positive about their chances of getting through to FA Cup second round

Dagenham & Redbridge keeper Mark Cousins insists all the players are positive and determined to progress past Southport this evening in their FA Cup first replay.

The Victoria Road number one, who has been impressive since taking over from Liam O’Brien in September, understands how important it is for the club to progress from a financial point of view.

And the 27-year-old is confident Daggers will take the game to the Sandgrounders at Haig Avenue.

“We will go up there and take it to them definitely,” said Cousins.

“It is a big old chance to get through in the FA Cup and I think the players are very determined to get the win.

“For the club it is good financially but for us players we want to be going as far as possible.

“We have to go up there and really take the game to them and be on the front foot right from the off.”

If Daggers can progress tonight they will face Eastleigh at Victoria Road on Sunday December 7.

And although Cousins believes that is a winnable match, he insists they must be fully focused on the Conference Premier team they play this evening.

He added: “It is another Conference team, and ok they have got a lot of financial backing at Eastleigh, but it is another game which is winnable.

“It isn’t like we are going to a League One club so it is another winnable game but Southport is the first one.”
