Tough Test Ahead For Daggers

Aldershot look to build on a promising performance against Macclesfield, as Youcef Dahmani reports

Dagenham & Redbridge take to the field tomorrow against Aldershot, in what is proving to be a busy week, as the East Londoners play three games in the space of seven days.

The east London outfit were unfortunate not to come out with three points from the 1-1 draw at home to Macclesfield on Saturday.

Aldershot come to the Chigwell Construction Stadium undefeated in their last five away games, with two wins and three draws. The team from Hampshire have scored only five goals in their away fixtures, but by contrast have only conceded three times.

The last time Aldershot came to Victoria Road was in the 2012/13 season, when both clubs where in League Two and it finished in a goalless draw. Both clubs have beaten each other twice in their last five meetings alongside a draw.
