Competition: National League

Market: Dagenham & Redbridge win

Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365

Handed a real chance to widen their buffer over the drop zone in midweek, Dagenham & Redbridge will welcome a struggling AFC Fylde to Essex on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another rugged display and picking up a 1-0 win away at Aldershot over the weekend, Dagenham & Redbridge have continued on quite the resurge over the past six weeks. Winning two of their last three National League outings, including a shock 2-0 win over play-off contenders Solihull Moors last month, the Essex outfit have tasted defeat just once in England’s fifth-tier since opening the New Year. Finding a way out of the drop zone and with a real opportunity to extend on their recent purple patch in midweek, Head Coach Daryl McMahon will be most impressed by his side’s continued performances on home soil. Tuesday’s hosts are unbeaten in their last five National League appearances at the Chigwell Construction Stadium, a run that stems back to the start of December.

As for the visitors, despite opening the 2019/2020 campaign as one of the pre-season play-off contenders, it has been nothing short of an abysmal season for AFC Fylde. Now sat 10 points adrift of safety and the mood in their camp at a continued-low, fans around the Mill Farm Stadium find their side in the midst of a woeful 13-match winless run in the National League, a run that stems back to the 26th of November. With their woeful run highlighted by an embarrassing 5-1 hammering away at Dover last month, it appears that Fylde could be in for another long night on the road in midweek. Hit with a 2-1 defeat when they made the trip to Essex last season, we’re backing a similar outcome at the Chigwell Construction Stadium on Tuesday night.
