MATCH PREVIEW | Dagenham & Redbridge - Yeovil Town

The Glovers travel to Victoria Road

16 October 2020

The Glovers will look to build on Tuesday evening’s improved performance against FC Halifax Town with a trip to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Darren Sarll opted for a change of system against The Shaymen which saw a number of chances fall to the Glovers throughout.

The Daggers have struggled in opening weeks, despite strong Summer recruitment which led to many tipping them as promotion, Daryl McMahon’s side have only scored twice in the National League this season.  

New signing Joe Quigley will be hoping to prove a point after joining Yeovil from Dagenham on Tuesday afternoon.

 

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

Reflecting on Tuesday night’s clash, the boss felt his side were good value despite not securing three points against Pete Wild’s side; “I certainly enjoyed watching it more than I have in our previous three games. I thought we dominated the game and would have been worthy winners if we had taken a couple of our good chances.

“I saw some really good things in the side, and I was very pleased with the performance,” Sarll noted.

“I don’t think there’s a part of the season ever, no matter what team you are, where you don’t have spells of really great and not so great, it’s just part of the season, it’s the rollercoaster of what a season is.

“It will be even more of a rollercoaster for supporters this year, because they’re not in the ground, they don’t get to feel the performance, the vibe and the spirit, so it will be an even more tortuous experience for them this year.”

 

Injury news

In his weekly press conference, Sarll confirmed that both Rhys Murphy and Courtney Duffus are “50/50” for Saturday’s fixture.

The boss also stated that after sitting out on Tuesday, Lawson D’Ath remains a doubt for the clash in East London.

 

A foot in the opposition camp

Managed by former Ebbsfleet United and Macclesfield boss Daryl McMahon, the Daggers have high hopes of promotion this season, investing heavily with signings such as the prolific Paul McCallum and the experienced Dean Rance, who McMahon worked with at Ebbsfleet.

McCallum, who netted against the Glovers for Barnet in last season’s play-off eliminator is in fact a doubt for Saturday as McMahon revealed the forward could be out for a “lengthy period” in a recent interview.

Recent results for Dagenham have been mixed, with one win and three losses in the league so far, the sole win came in front of the BT Sport cameras with the Daggers beating Wealdstone 1-0 last weekend thanks to an Angelo Balanta header.

MATCH REPORT | Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Yeovil Town

Ten-man Yeovil held their own in East London

17 October 2020

Ten-man Yeovil Town battled hard for a point against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday afternoon as the Glovers drew 0-0 at Victoria Road.

After a positive first half performance, Luke Wilkinson was given his marching orders in the second half.

Despite being a man down, the Glovers held their own to earn a share of the spoils at Victoria Road.

After switching to a 3-5-2 against Halifax, Darren Sarll opted for more of the same with just two changes to the side which started in Yorkshire.

Adam Smith kept his place between the sticks after a strong start to the season, with Wilkinson, Lee Collins and Josh Staunton ahead of him.

The flanks saw starts for Dan Leadbitter and Gabby Rogers who earnt his first start of the season following a successful cameo against The Shaymen. Charlie Lee, Albi Skendi and Matt Warburton also began in the midfield.

After Courtney Duffus picked up a knock, Joe Quigley started his first game for the Glovers against his former side alongside Rhys Murphy.

The opening stages were an even contest, with chances falling to both sides within five minutes, Sam Deering fired wide with a first-time effort from the hosts but the better of the chances fell to Charlie Lee who had his effort saved by Elliot Justham from around 15-yards out.

As the half progressed, so did Yeovil as Sarll’s side began to apply significant pressure on the Daggers backline.

Murphy thought he had opened the scoring in the 32nd minute, after expertly beating the offside trap, his effort struck the post and agonisingly dropped the wrong side of the line for Dagenham to clear.

The Glovers were dealt a defensive blow as the half entered its closing stages, after captain Collins went down off the ball, he was replaced by Carl Dickinson in the 37th minute.

After being denied by the post, the crossbar denied Town in the 40th minute as Wilkinson hammered a trademark free-kick onto the bar from around 35-yards out.

The second half saw Yeovil begin at the same pace, with Lee firing an effort over the bar in the 46th minute.

The Glovers were dealt another defensive sucker punch in the 60th minute, with Wilkinson given his marching orders for a last-man foul on the pacey Darren McQueen.

Despite the man disadvantage, chances continued to fall for Town, with the always bright Rogers firing over in the 65th minute.

The red card did take the sting out of Yeovil’s continued waves of attacks, largely being limited to the counter attack. Leadbitter should have done better with Yeovil’s best chance on the break, failing to find Murphy as he bared down on goal.

With Skendi and Staunton forming a makeshift central defensive pairing, the ten-man Glovers held firm and secured the green and whites' first clean sheet of the season.
