Dagenham & Redbridge make the short trip to Bromley this weekend to face a side who finished 14th in the National League last season with 60 points. The Ravens will hope to improve on their stuttering start to the season, having won just one of their first 11 games. The Hayes Lane outfit currently sit just above the relegation zone, one points better off than North Ferriby United who John Still’s men beat 2-0 last weekend.
Bromley’s main threat comes in the form of striker Tobi Sho-Silva, who has found the net four times this season and will be looking to upset the back four come Saturday.
Daggers, though, have an in-form attacker of their own as Oliver Hawkins got on the scoresheet yet again last weekend as he continues to improve and develop week-by-week. Luke Howell also netted in a 2-0 win over North Ferriby, his first goal since returning to Victoria Road from Boreham Wood.
The Villagers were by far the poorest side to visit Victoria Road this season and were unable to cope with Daggers’ high press, leading to basic errors when in possession. Worse still, the Humberside club struggled to hit the target, a sign they could be relegated from the National League after just one season.
