Daggers keeper discusses belief Victoria Road outfit have on the road

Dagenham & Redbridge goalkeeper Mark Cousins is looking forward to facing Plymouth Argyle tomorrow, and is confident of achieving a positive result.

The 27-year-old believes Wayne Burnett’s side can go anywhere in the division and pick up points.

And the former Colchester United ace isn’t wrong, the Victoria Road side have fared well on the road only losing four out of 10 matches.

They have taken points off Bury, Wycombe Wanderers and Accrington Stanley this campaign, as well as running Burton Albion close.

“It will be a tough game at Plymouth, but I am sure everyone will be up for it,” said Cousins

“Plymouth is a fantastic stadium to go to. It is a good club and I am sure it will be a fantastic pitch to play on.

“Hopefully we can get a result. We are good away from home and we know we can go to any ground and get a result.”

After suffering defeat against Tranmere Rovers last weekend, Cousins is looking for Daggers to come back from Home Park with a good result.

If they can do that it will give them some momentum before the congested Christmas period, where they face local rivals Stevenage Borough and Southend United.

He is also curious to see how Patrick Agyemang, Jamie Cureton and Rhys Murphy link up, and is pleased with the additions boss Burnett made in the loan market in November.

“It is really important the Christmas part, the games do come thick and fast,” admitted Cousins.

“It is three within the space of eight or nine days so if you can get a bit of momentum going it is always good taking it into the Christmas period.

“It is always good to have new faces, who provide plenty of competition. I think there is always a good buzz when a few new players come in.

“Pat has obviously been around a long while and he worked really hard up front against Tranmere.

“I am sure in a couple of games him and Curo and Murphy and all that can link up in training and develop a good partnership.”
