All you need to know about the Sky Bet League 2 meeting at the Chigwell Construction Stadium on Tuesday (k.o. 7.45pm).

Dagenham & Redbridge vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 9th February 2016, k.o. 7.45pm
Chigwell Construction Stadium, RM10 7XL
Referee: Keith Stroud

The chance to bounce back from the disappointment of a defeat comes around quickly with the trip to Dagenham on Tuesday night, and the Chairboys will need to rely on their outstanding away record if they are to get back on track in Sky Bet League 2.

Saturday's setback at home to Luton was their third in a row at Adams Park, as the Blues struggled to recover from Cameron McGeehan's spectacular first-half effort and found goalscoring chances hard to come by.

But away from home it's been a much different story, and the 1-0 win at Plymouth at the end of January underlined why they have the best defensive record on their travels in the division.

On the flip side, Dagenham are yet to win at home this season but the return of John Still as manager will have galvanised a side previously struggling under Wayne Burnett and they'll look to repeat the quality of their performance in the reverse fixture at Adams Park in August, when only a last-gasp equaliser from Aaron Pierre denied them all three points.

Pierre was also in target on the Wanderers' last trip to the Daggers, clinching a 1-0 win in March, although veteran striker Jamie Cureton missed a great, late chance to snatch a point and the renowned goalscorer won't be likely to pass up a similar opportunity if it comes his way on Tuesday.

Both sides' involvement in the FA Cup third round forced the postponement of the original tie, scheduled for Saturday 9th January.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 6,000 (2,200 seats) and the main telephone number is 0208 592 1549. Away fans are housed in the new all seated Traditional Builders Stand at one end of the stadium. Up to 1,200 fans can be accommodated in this area. As you would expect from a new stand (opened in 2009) the views of the playing action and facilities are both good. The stand itself is easily the best stand at the stadium, so it is intriguing that it is given over to away supporters. Note that the entrance to the away section is at the other end of the ground to the main entrance.

Facilities around the ground
There is a fair sized Social Club at the ground (entrance fee 50p) that welcomes away fans. It is fairly basic, but comfortable and shows SKY Sports television. It is also contains a local betting outlet and a programme booth. The beer is reasonably priced with hand pulled Youngs Bitter available. Inside the ground alcohol is available to away supporters in the Traditional Builders Stand. Alternatively near Dagenham East Underground Station is a Marston’s pub – the “Pipe Major”. This is popular with away fans due to its proximity to the station.
