Hartlepool United welcome Dagenham & Redbridge to the Vic on Friday aiming to add to their impressive home performances in 2021.
Pools are unbeaten in 11 games and will be looking for a repeat of the result a week ago when Luke Armstrong’s goal saw them take all three points. Since that match, both sides have played play-off hopefuls. Dave Challinor’s side took a point from Stockport while Dagenham beat one-time runaway leaders Torquay.
The Daggers currently sit in 16th, though they’re just eight points from the play-off places. They’ve won just three of their last five, with their defeat against Pools their only defeat. Led by Daryl McMahon, the team includes Elliot Justham, the goalkeeper that did his utmost to frustrate Pools at The Chigwell Construction Stadium.
Dagenham’s last five games:
Dagenham & Redbridge 1 – 0 Torquay United
Dagenham & Redbridge 0 – 1 Hartlepool United
Altrincham 0 – 1 Dagenham & Redbridge
Dagenham & Redbridge 1 – 1 Weymouth
Dagenham & Redbridge 2 – 1 Maidenhead United
The teams have played each other 16 times, with Pools winning nine times against the Daggers. Before last month’s victory, our last win was in December 2019 when Mark Kitching’s goal was the difference at Victoria Park.
Pools will be without Joe Grey as he continues to recover from a back injury and there will be later fitness tests for Jamie Sterry and Rhys Oates as they come back from niggles.
