Young defender discusses his spell at Dagenham & Redbridge and playing alongside Dikamona

Dagenham & Redbridge can look forward to a rare Saturday off this weekend after their clash against Carlisle United was postponed.

Victoria Road was due to host the Cumbrians, but their FA Cup progress has seen the league fixture pushed back with a new date to be decided.

A break may be exactly what Daggers need, though, having thrown away a two-goal lead for the third time this season to draw 2-2 at Newport County.

Despite Christian Doidge and Joe Worrall putting the visitors in a commanding position, they conceded twice late on to slip back into the drop zone.

It’s a result that appears to have checked the good mood around the club since the return of John Still as manager.

But young defender Worrall is unsure whether the break comes at a good time with the team looking to bounce back quickly after their Welsh woe.

“It is good to have the break to forget about Newport, and it isn’t, because the performances have been picking up since I’ve been here,” he said.

“I’m not saying that just because I’m trying to excite the fans, they can see that we’re a lot harder to beat.”

Worrall was the second signing of Still’s third spell with Daggers, joining on a month’s loan from Nottingham Forest.

Despite being just 19 years old, he has looked an assured figure at the back since making an impressive debut away to Everton in the FA Cup.

And Worrall says he is enjoying every second of his stint down south.

“I love it!” he added. “Forest is my club, but I love testing myself in other leagues and especially for a club like Dagenham. The fans are really good and I like playing there.

“Playing at the back with Clevid Dikamona, he’s a funny guy and a good player. He’s an athlete and I think we get on all right.”

With Daggers not in action again until February 6, Worrall may have just one more game for the club before his loan deal expires next month.

But the youngster says regardless of whether the spell is extended, he will continue to give his all during his time with the club.

“I’m only here for a month and I’m not sure whether it’s going to be extended,” he said.

“As long as I’m here I’m going to be giving 100 per cent in the shirt and that’s all I’m looking to do.”

More goals from Worrall would be a great way to show it.
