Dagenham & Redbridge vs. Bromley

Wednesday night’s televised fixture in the National League comes from Victoria Park, where Dagenham & Redbridge host Bromley.

The visitors are flying high after an unbeaten start to the season which has seen them win five of their eight matches to date. The Ravens sit third in the league and are the only side in the division not to have tasted defeat.

Dagenham & Redbridge find themselves 11th in the table after three wins and three loses in their first eight games. The Daggers are however on a four game unbeaten run of their own which has seen them amass eight points from the twelve available.

A victory for Peter Taylor’s side would elevate them to within touching distance of the play-off positions.
