DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still has challenged his side to make the most of their underdog status when they host Northampton Town on Saturday before travelling to Rotherham on Tuesday night.

"Northampton are deemed a bigger club than us and we always like to put ourselves up to the test," he said.

"They have picked up recently, especially defensively, but we want to put in a good showing.

"Rotherham away is tough anytime, but especially in midweek," added the boss.

"You're in the game to play these sorts of matches though and I can't wait for them.

"If we can get two or three back-to-back wins together, then it will put us right back into the mix again."
