Daggers fan Daniel Law is writing a blog during the 2015-16 season

Daggers have another chance to end their winless run at home on Saturday when they welcome Barnet for a London derby.

The Bees are a side who may well be lacking match fitness after their game away to Newport County last weekend was postponed with their last game a 0-0 draw away to Stevenage on January 23.

The away fixture in September ended with the west Londoners as 3-1 winners over Dagenham, a day that many fans, including myself, found frustrating both on and off the pitch!

It also comes after a week in which the Victoria Road side had two games that were against teams in the top half of the table in League Two.

Cambridge away was a game which some of the Dagenham faithful thought the team could grab at least a point from following the win in the same fixture, albeit in the JPT. However, that was not to be the case as Cambridge snatched a narrow 1-0 win over Daggers.

Former loanee James Dunne lined up for the hosts and nearly had a big impact on his old team when he lined his shot up only for it to fly over the bar.

Mark Cousins was once again keeping Daggers in the game after he pulled off some terrific saves, just like he’s been doing in all the games he’s played in this season, but he couldn’t stop Luke Berry’s late penalty.

Tuesday night saw Daggers host Wycombe, a side that denied the east Londoners a win at Adams Park in August after Aaron Pierre scored a stoppage time equaliser — sounds familiar really!

Daggers were dealt a huge blow as Josh Passley was sent off after referee Keith Stroud deemed that he was the last man as he fouled Garry Thompson and went behind on the stroke of half-time when striker Paul Hayes turned in Paris Cowan-Hall’s pass across goal.

The drama didn’t end there though, as Wycombe midfielder Thompson himself was sent back to the changing rooms early himself as he fouled Joss Labadie.

Daggers had been playing well a man light, so took full advantage of the number of players being levelled up when Luke Guttridge marked his home debut with a goal.

But Cowan-Hall scored from close range to continue Dagenham’s home woes this season and make three points against Barnet this weekend urgently required.

Come on you Daggers!
