Daggers travel to Cambridge and will aim to achieve something Manchester United couldn’t do - win at Abbey Stadium
Abu Ogogo is keen for Daggers to show their recent defeat to Northampton Town was just a blip and they have turned their season around when they face Cambridge United this evening at Abbey Stadium.
The Victoria Road captain is expected to be involved in some capacity tonight after working his way back to full fitness.
Wayne Burnett’s team have been in the bottom two since January 17 when they suffered a 1-0 loss to the Cobblers.
But they will aim to pick up a victory this evening that will move them out of the relegation places and hope that the U’s are still feeling the after effects of holding Manchester United to a stalemate in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday.
“Before the result against Northampton we were three unbeaten and with three clean sheets,” said Ogogo.
“Obviously that was a good little run, but hopefully the defeat is just a blip and we can get a good result against Cambridge.
“Hopefully we can take advantage of them facing Manchester United as well and take three points.”
Daggers skipper is also sure they will improve their current record in front of goal, which has seen them score just once over the past two months.
Ogogo himself is looking to end the current campaign with a flurry of goals and is sure the club will start finding the net again.
He added: “Earlier in the season I scored three in three, but I missed a couple of chances which I was disappointed with so I should really be on five or six goals so far.
“But I have three and there is 20 games left so hopefully I can get in the team as soon as I can and if I get the chance, I put them away.
“I think at the start of the season we were scoring quite a few goals, but conceding quite a few.
“Now it has turned around a bit because we have been getting quite a few clean sheets, but not scoring at the other end so we need to keep it tight at the back and hopefully start scoring goals at the other end.”
