Match Preview: Dagenham & Redbridge v. Yeovil Town

available for selection

The Glovers travel to bottom of the table Dagenham & Redbridge this weekend looking to start a winning run after losing out 1-0 to Charlton Athletic last Saturday at Huish Park.

2011 has been good for the Green and Whites so far however, as they have played eleven, won five, drawn two and lost a respectable two. They will be hoping for a repeat performance of January, in a month which saw them lose only once, and win four matches, three of which were on the bounce.

Dagenham however aren't having such a good time of it, currently languishing bottom of nPower League One, although they do possess two or three games in hand over some of the sides above them.

Consistency has been lacking for the Daggers, as their last three games has seen them win one, draw one, and lose one.

In terms of injuries Yeovil are much as they were, although they do welcome back Craig Alcock who has finally shaken of his back injury to become available for selection. A blow for the Glovers however is that they will be without top goal scorer dean Bowditch, who is still struggling with an injury which kept him out of last week's game with Charlton.

Two new arrivals who will be looking to get involved are loan striker Antonio German who joined from QPR until the end of the season, and free agent Danny Fitzsimons, who after being released from Loftus Road has joined Yeovil for the remainder of the season.

The Daggers have been dealt a couple of blows leading up to the match, hearing that on loan striker John Akinde and fellow forward Josh Scott will both miss the rest of the season with a hernia and blood clot respectively.

In the reverse fixture earlier in the season Dagenham ran out 3-1 victors at Huish Park, although those of you who watched the match will know that the Green and Whites deserved much more from the game. Weak defending was capitalised on by the Daggers who will be shocked by the transformation Yeovil have gone through, seeing them concede just four times in 2011.

If you are not travelling to Victoria Park then the game is available to listen to on BBC Radio Somerset 99.5FM with a full match report following later on Glover Lover.
