Dagenham & Redbridge will host Leyton Orient in the Southern Section second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
The Daggers for the first time in the history of the competition received a bye into the second round, while League One O’s had to do it the hard way after beating last season’s Trophy winners Peterborough United 3-2 thanks to a double from Chris Dagnall and one for Bradley Pritchard on Tuesday.
The clash is a repeat of the Daggers famous penalty win over the O’s in 2011 when they came through 14-13 on penalties after the game at Brisbane Road had finished 1-1, with James Shea saving Ben Chorley’s penalty.
Daggers’ record in the Trophy against Orient is a successful won, winning all four games in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2011.
And if both were selected, it could be the clash of the Batt brothers with Damian currently with the Daggers and Shaun at Leyton Orient.
The tie will be played week commencing October 6.
