GETTING TO KNOW YOU - DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE

16 June 2015


Managed by Wayne Burnett, Dagenham and Redbridge are favourites for relegation.

However, the Daggers are comfortable with being labelled as underdogs, as one remarkable example last season showed.

In August 2014, Dagenham and Redbridge were set to play Brenford in all-London affair but that was where the similarities ended.

Two leagues apart and with the Bees riding high following promotion to the Championship, no-one gave the Victoria Road outfit a chance.

It seemed as if the game was going according to the rulebook when Brenford went 2-0 up with just ten minutes gone on the clock.

Then something truly unprecedented happened – Dagenham not only fought back, they roared into action and the game turned into the joint highest scoring League Cup match in history.

The two teams played out a breathtaking 6-6 draw before the Daggers eventually lost on penalties so do not write them off just yet.

Distance from Huish Park: 169 miles (three hours, 11 minutes).

2014-15 season final position: 14th in League Two.

Odds on to finish: Win outright 66/1, promotion 14/1, relegation 9/2 (all odds sought from SkyBet).

Super stat: The club was founded in 1992 by joining two teams, Dagenham and Redbridge Forest, together.
