Recent matches have heralded a welcome upturn in fortunes for the Daggers. A vintage home performance saw Brentford surprisingly dispatched 4-1, before a superb battling away performance at Oldham yielded a precious point. A somewhat fortuitous home win against Yeovil Town set everything up for a trip to rivals Walsall, but the Saddlers put a dent in our aspirations with a well-earned 1-0 victory. Here’s our take.
Recent form has seen the Daggers move to within 6 points of safety having been 9 adrift last month. With 20 matches remaining, suddenly there is renewed optimism at Victoria Road that the great escape could be on. We wouldn’t be the first team to pull of such a feat, with plenty of sources of inspiration in recent history.
