Dagenham & Redbridge make the trip to Meadow Lane to take on Notts County tonight (Tuesday), looking to extend their 11-game unbeaten run in the National League.
The Magpies were relegated out of the Football League for the first time in their long history last season and are currently in 13th place, after earning a last-minute draw at Dover on Saturday.
Substitute Kristian Dennis saved the day with a last-gasp header to leave County on 21 points, three behind Daggers in the last play-off spot.
And Daggers midfielder Harold Odametey is looking forward to the challenge, saying: "You always want to play at big clubs, give it your all and maybe nick one, who knows?
"The run keeps going. Everyone is positive, there's no big egos in the camp. We're just working and working and working.

"We want to have a strong season. We know what we want to do, we're just keeping it between us."
Angelo Balanta netted for Daggers in their 1-1 draw with Barnet at the weekend and echoed the thoughts of his teammate, adding: "It's a big club, with a big pitch, we've got to get our recovery in now and we look forward to it."
Boss Peter Taylor was forced to make changes to his line-up against the Bees due to injury and suspension and knows he may have to shuffle his pack again with games coming thick and fast once more.
He said: "The players, all players in the National League will be playing on Tuesday night again now.
"It's all about the preparation and recovery. That's where players have to do it right, if they don't they feel good on Tuesday night. I'm expecting my players to do it right."
