Daggers teenager hopes friends and family will be in the crowd to cheer him on at Oxford tonight

On-loan Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Matty Cash says he will experience something of a homecoming tonight (Tuesday) at Oxford United, which is just over 20 miles from the school he attended in his younger years.

Cash, who is on loan at Daggers from Nottingham Forest, hails from Slough in Berkshire and was a scholar on the FAB Academy programme at the Bisham Abbey Sports Centre, Buckhinghamshire.

And the 18-year-old expects many of his friends and family will make the short trip to Oxfordshire tonight to cheer him and his new team mates on to a shock success at the League Two promotion hopefuls.

“Oxford is near my home town, so there’ll be a big crowd there,” said Cash. “We’ll go there and try to get something because the fans deserve it. We’ll work really hard and see what it brings us.”

Daggers are currently as long as 8/1 with the bookmakers to triumph to tonight at the Kassam Stadium, with their hosts as heavy as 7/15 favourites and the draw at 19/5 at the time of writing.

It literally seems that the odds are stacked against the east Londoners tonight, with the bookies tipping them for a long evening.

But Cash is confident that if Daggers are able to show the endeavour they have in recent matches, they may be able to spring a surprise and reignite their bid to remain in the Football League for a 10th successive season.

“Every game is obviously of massive importance, especially being down the bottom, but our next step is to keep working hard,” added Cash.

“The manager says that doors will open if we keep knocking on them. We’ll go again, we won’t put our heads down.

“We’ve got a strong enough squad with enough experience to get us out. We’ll keep working hard and see where it brings us.”
