Still ready to make more additions to Dagenham & Redbridge squad

With the transfer window closing before they are next in League Two action, Ian Culverhouse expects Dagenham & Redbridge to be a hive of activity over the coming week.

Boss John Still has already been busy this month, bringing Oliver Muldoon, Joe Worrall and Harry Hickford in on loan, while signing Oliver Hawkins and Luke Guttridge on permanent deals.

That doesn’t look to be the end of the incomings, though, with Daggers’ in the market for a centre back with Nyron Nosworthy said to be considering retirement.

Right back, in particular, looks to be an area where Dagenham could strengthen if Justin Hoyte continues to play as a sweeper, but assistant manager Culverhouse insists the club are keen to improve across the pitch.

“I think John is looking in every position,” said Culverhouse. “With the contacts John’s got, the phone never stops and he is always looking to bring people in who can better the team and help the players we have here. It will be an ongoing process throughout January.”

With this weekend’s scheduled game against Carlisle United postponed because of the Cumbrians’ FA Cup fourth round tie against Everton – Dagenham’s conquerors – Still’s men do not play again until February 6 when they visit Cambridge United.

The east Londoners have more wins at the Abbey Stadium than they do at home this season, having triumphed 2-1 in the first round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in September.

And Culverhouse believes the break means Daggers will be well prepared to down the U’s when the sides meet again.

“We’ve got two weeks now building up to Cambridge so a lot of work will go on at the training ground,” he added.

“The shape and the balance of the team now has to be taken on to the next stage where we have to add a bit of attacking impetus to it.”

Matt McClure scored the opener for Daggers on their last trip to United and could be in line to face Cambridge as he nears a return from the ankle injury that has kept him out since November.
