Preview - Dagenham & Redbridge (a)



A good opportunity for Notts to continue to solidify their play off credentials against a team struggling for form and who have already lost twice at Meadow Lane this season.


Dagenham are currently 20th in the league on 33 points but only above Chesterfield and outside of the drop zone courtesy of a slightly better goal difference.


Dagenham currently sit 22nd in the last 6 form table with no win, 3 draws and 3 defeats. They are currently without a win in 11 games, their last victory a surprising 6-1 victory at home to Aldershot back in November.


Dagenham's last six league games: P6 | W0 | D3 | L3 | GF 3 | GA 8 | GD -5 | Pts 3.


This equates to a PPG average for the last 6 league games of just 0.50, a goals per game average of 0.5 and a goals conceded average of 1.33.


By comparison Notts are currently 8 games unbeaten in the league and have a last six record of P6 | W4 | D2 | L0 | GF 10 | GA 3 | GD +7 | Pts 14.


This equates to a PPG average for the last 6 league games of 2.33, a goals per game average of 1.67 and a goals conceded average of 0.5.


How the two teams compare for the season so far (National League):

The season stats would suggest that Dagenham are currently experiencing a bad patch as last 6 stats are all considerably below their season averages.


Goals stats would indicate that Dagenham have a propensity to ship goals in the last 15 minutes of a game . . . not to mention the odd goal from the halfway line with the last kick of the game! (sorry, had to slip that one in).


Notts appear to be at their most vulnerable in the first 15 mins and at their most potent just before and after the half time interval.


Goals scored and conceded per 15 min segment for both Notts and Dagenham. Segments 31-45 mins and 76-90 mins include goals scored in added/injury time.


Angelo Balanta is currently the Dagenham leading scorer with 7 goals from midfield, followed by forward Joe Quigley who has found the net 5 times so far this season.


Notts will be boosted by the signing this week of goal scoring midfielder Callum Roberts from Blyth Spartans as well as the probable return to the squad of Jim O'Brien.


A win and 3 points for Notts could potentially see a jump in the table to 4th place subject to results at Boreham Wood who are at home to Barrow, and Bromley who are at home to Barnet.


A defeat could see a drop to 9th depending on results for Solihull, Stockport and Halifax.


Bookies appear to have Notts favourites for the away win at 6/4, Dagenham home win at 9/5 and 9/4 for the draw. (oddschecker.com).
