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

Daggers head into this weekend’s crucial home game against York City looking to take advantage of a run of four straight defeats for the visitors, the most recent of which was a 4-0 thrashing at second-placed Oxford United. The reverse fixture at Bootham Crescent ended with both sides taking a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw, a match in which Daggers conceded the equaliser 11 minutes from time.

York’s last win was a 2-1 victory over Exeter on February 16, whilst Daggers’ last came on January 2, also against the Grecians. Dagenham have only scored 10 goals in 16 home league games this season, combined with the 29 goals they’ve shipped at home in the league, showing just why they’ve not won a game at home all season!

Tuesday will then see Daggers host Carlisle United at Victoria Road in the rearranged fixture from January as the Cumbrians hosted Everton in the FA Cup. Carlisle are currently 11th in League Two, three points away from the play-offs.

There were two more games in the past week for Daggers, of which both have failed to produce a win for the east Londoners!

Daggers lost 1-0 to second-bottom Yeovil Town last Saturday at Victoria Road in a relegation ‘six pointer’. The loss means that Daggers continue their disastrous home league record that has led to the team being rock-bottom of the Football League.

Things could have been even worse for Daggers if it wasn’t for the impressive Liam O’Brien, yet another game in which the keeper has kept the team in with a chance of at least getting a point from the match. Unfortunately Daggers were denied even a point from the game and the away side moved further away from Dagenham, who look set on dropping down to the National League!

Daggers then travelled north to Nottinghamshire on Tuesday to a Notts County team looking to rub even more salt into the wounds. Yet it was Daggers who should have come away from the match with all three points as they hit the crossbar, posts and forced Magpies keeper Scott Loach into a string of superb saves.
