The big preview: Dagenham & Redbridge

4 April 2014

Dagenham & Redbridge are the visitors to Adams Park on Saturday as Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys go in search of a valuable three points k.o 3pm).

Blues go into the game on the back of a superb battling display at promotion-chasing Scunthorpe United, which earned them a deserved point.

The Daggers still harbour play-off ambitions are currently five points adrift of seventh-placed Oxford United with six games to go.

Top scorer Rhys Murphy and exciting winger Zavon Hines look set to miss out again through injury, but Wayne Burnett’s side are unbeaten in their last eight games.

Gareth Ainsworth - talking to Chairboys Player

“It’s a big, big game. Dagenham are in form and I think they’re eight unbeaten. They’ve probably got a slight sniff of the play-offs as well and they would need to win all their games, which starts with us on Saturday.

“We’ll have to be ready for it and we can build on what we did last week, but we need to start scoring goals.

“It’s important to get the first goal and then build on that. It would be great if the fans get down and get behind the boys because we start our run of six huge games to stay in the Football League.

“They’ve got Norris on loan from Brentford up front and he’s a big threat and Medy Elito on the wing, who has taken over the mantle from Zavon Hines. 

“Those are just two of their attacking threat, but I believe we can get at them and at their defence.

“We’ve got players, your Kretzschmars, your Scowens going forward and Stevie Craig led the line fantastically last week. 

“We’ve got players who can hurt teams, we just need to add some goals to the team. 

“We’re never out of games and its been a tight one all year, but it’s about making sure we take our chances, stay resilient and don’t let a bit of magic break us down.”

Wayne Burnett - talking to Dagenham’s official website

“I think the win on Saturday puts us on a good footing going forward into the last few home matches of the season. 

“We’ve got some tough games, but they’re all winnable, we will be trying to get as many points as possible. 

“Facing teams at the bottom, fighting for their lives, can be a lot tougher than playing the teams near the top. 

“We have to play the four bottom teams and they’re predominantly harder, I’m under no illusions of how tough this run in is going to be. 

“It’s good at this stage to not be fighting for points to stay in the league, but for points to push for the play-offs. 

“Wycombe are a team that can get results, they drew against Scunthorpe and they’re a very hard-working side and we won’t be taking anything for granted.”
