Looking at the home side

Dagenham and Redbridge have also had a slow start to their season, winning only once in the league away at Northampton Town a fortnight ago. They find themselves in 21st in the league accumulating five points from their seven games. Last time out they lost 2-1 away at Carlisle United, when the home side came from a goal behind after Christian Doidge put Dagenham a goal up after 11 minutes. Matthew McClure is their current leading scorer with three goals in the league, seconded by Doidge who has two goals in all competitions.

Last meeting

Five goals in the last fifteen minutes of the game brought a spectacular end to what was overall a dull game. Newport had had the better of the chances in the game but were unable to take them and conceded three goals in ten minutes towards the end of the game, and found themselves 3-0 down as the game went into stoppage time. A goal each for David Tutonda and Aaron O’Connor in stoppage time brought the arrears to just one goal but the referee blew for full time before they had an opportunity to threaten the Dagenham goal again.

Last time out

as they came up just short, against a strong Morecambe side. After Alan Goodall had put the visitors ahead Scott Barrow scored a wonder strike from thirty yards out to draw level. It appeared as though that was going to be how the game finished until in the third minute of added time Kevin Ellison was brought down in the box by Aaron Hayden and calmly converted the penalty into the top right corner of the net, sending keeper Joe Day the wrong way and giving the visitors all three points. cruel defeatNewport suffered a
