Dagenham & Redbridge captain urges team to keep fighting after Wycombe loss

Dagenham & Redbridge skipper Joss Labadie says the team must draw on the plus points despite going down 2-1 at home to Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday.

The hosts spent just under an hour with 10 men after Josh Passley was given his marching orders in the first half while Paul Hayes put the visitors ahead in stoppage time at the end of the opening period.

Daggers were resolute in the second half, though, levelling through Luke Guttridge after Garry Thompson saw red for the visitors, but Paris Cowan-Hall’s late header won it for the Chairboys.

It means the Victoria Road side stay four points adrift of safety in League Two, but Labadie insists there are aspects of their play that Daggers can be proud of against Wycombe.

“The manager said there are positives to take from the game,” he said. “In the second half after going down to 10 men, it wasn’t easy, but we battered them for the majority of it. They’ve scored a goal out of nothing and it’s just not going for us at the moment.”

There seemed to be something of a never say die with Daggers in the second half against Wycombe despite ending on the wrong side of the final scoreline.

Frankie Raymond in particular, having come on as a half time substitute, looked to take the game by the scruff of the neck, playing the role of deep-lying playmaker well with good balls and good tackles.

Definitely it Daggers carry the same fight and spirit in the Barnet match, they should get something out of the game and Labadie knows Daggers must continue doing that if they wish to stay up.

“We’re at the bottom of the league and that’s how every game is going to be. We’re going to keep battling until the end of the season and that’s what we have to do. It’s not going to be pretty, but we have to do it.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
