Daggers fan Daniel Law is writing a blog throughout the 2015/16 season

Following the morale boosting Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Cambridge United, Daggers capped off a great week for the team with a 2-1 victory away at Northampton Town on Saturday.

It was a victory made all the more sweeter because Daggers have finally won against the Cobblers at the 11th attempt.

Daggers fans were once again impressed with the ever-improving strike partnership of Chris Doidge and Matt McClure.

Doidge brings the aerial prowess and strength to the side, while McClure has the pace and clinical finishing that makes these two a perfect match up front together for Dagenham at the moment.

As Daggers aim to climb the table over the coming weeks they now have to travel to the furthest north side in the country as they go to Cumbria for the game against Carlisle.

Boosted by the terrific form of Jabo Ibehre, Carlisle currently sit nine places above Daggers in 11th place, with the Cumbrians winning their last two league fixtures 3-2.

Daggers could potentially exploit Carlisle’s defence but ultimately need to be wary at the back themselves.
