Keeping Up With...The Daggers
RELEGATED Dagenham & Redbridge are the visitors to Home Park this Saturday.
John Still's side were relegated last Saturday after a 3-2 loss to Leyton Orient - a side the Pilgrims beat 3-1 on Tuesday. Against the Daggers, Jay Simpson's first-half brace was swiftly cancelled out by Jamie Cureton and Clevid Dikamonda within two second-half minutes, but Armand Gnauduillet broke Dagenham hearts by firing in a 65th minute winner.
With nothing but pride to play for they were then defeated once again, this time on Tuesday by Wimbledon who were looking to maintain their play-off ambitions. Forward Lyle Taylor scored either side of half-time to take his tally for the season to 19 league goals.
One familiar face that could potentially feature is that of winger Ashley Hemmings. The now 25-year-old joined Argyle on loan from Wolves in the 2011-12 season in which he made 23 appearances, scoring twice. Most notably many Greens fans will remember him for his late winner against Bristol Rovers on Boxing Day 2011 as Argyle came from two goals down to snatch a 3-2 win.
The Pilgrims will need to be wary of Jamie Cureton with the 40-year-old forward notching seven goals this season. The former Exeter City man scored against Argyle for Dagenham in a 2-0 victory in the 2013-14 season.
Poor form has seen Dagenham pick up just two wins in their previous 10: a 2-1 win over Morecambe and a 1-0 win over second-bottom York, who themselves could be relegated if they fail to win all of their remaining games, and that is only if Newport fail to pick up a single point in their final three games too.
The Daggers are unfortunate owners of a few league lows this season with only Yeovil's 38 worse than their goal tally of 39. Dagenham's goal difference is a lowly -38, thanks to 77 goals conceded. Only York (79) have let in more.
Historically Adams' side have the upper hand over their rivals with six wins to Dagenham's two. Argyle have never lost to Dagenham at Home Park, winning three and drawing three of the six encounters.
Earlier in the season Joss Labadie opened the scoring for the Daggers on 59 minutes, only for Ryan Brunt to score a dramatic stoppage time equaliser, as the teams draw 1-1.
