They have lost both away games in 2021, and lost at home to Stockport too. They capitalised on an early red card to draw at home to in-form Chesterfield last weekend, and their only win this year came in dramatic circumstances: trailing 2-0 to Kings Lynn at home with 18 minutes left, they came back to clinch a 3-2 win with Mitch Brundle striking in added time.
With 12 goals conceded in those 5 games, and no clean sheets, The Daggers will want to tighten things up at the back. Only the bottom to have scored fewer tha them too: they're overdue an improvement in form.
HEAD TO HEAD
With just one win in five games, we urgently need to improve our home record against Dagenham & Redbridge.
Stuart Beavon scored the only goal on the sole occasion that we did beat The Daggers at The Racecourse, back in February 2019, but the other times they’ve visited us, we’ve struggled.
Indeed, we’ve only scored one goal at home to them apart from Beavon’s: Paul Rutherford gave us the lead in April 2018, but The Daggers fought back to win 2-1.
They were also victorious in April 2017, winning 1-0, and have also played out two goalless draws.
In contrast, our record at Dagenham is rather better. We’ve won there twice, with Luke Young’s thunderbolt in October 2018 winning him the Goal of the Season trophy.
He also scored in a 2-1 defeat at Dagenham last season, and is the only Wrexham player to have scored more than once in this fixture.
Christian Dibble makes his 100th career league appearance.
