Lots of goals? It could be a BT sports giveaway on Saturday

Football at full throttle, a little light behind but forward? Get out the popcorn, sit back, watch and enjoy.

But not many artists could offer the kind of thrill-by-the-minute displays that Dagenham & Redbridge are offering right now.

Let’s go back five weeks ago, when they beat Bromley 4-1. Just a few days later, Notts County brought them down with a bang with a 5–0 home loss.

That was followed by another five-goal game as Wrexham dished out a lesson.

Then came two home games in one week: they thrashed Altrincham 5-1 and beat Barnet 5-4 in a breathless derby.

The drama was not over. They were beaten 5-1 at Dorking before, you guessed it, another high-scoring match on Tuesday at Chesterfield, where they cruised to a 3-2 victory.

Are you still with us? Well, to sum it up, it’s just the 40 goals in his last seven games.

BT Sport cameras prepare for the start of lunch on Saturday with Southend United making the short trip.

All we ask is that you don’t choose this time to pack up the entertainment!

But the Blues have a score to settle. They were beaten three times by the Daggers last season, including a 3-0 loss during coach Kevin Maher’s first game in charge last October.

The Roots Hall boss told the Echo: “When you reflect on the year there has been a lot of change and it’s a credit to everyone at the football club who have worked so hard behind the scenes to put it on the right track.”

“We still have a long way to go and we know that, but if you look at the team we think we are in a better place now in terms of age and energy.”

“I remember the first day I came in here, it wasn’t a great place to be. But now I see the players in the place and they all want to be here and work hard.”

Shrimpers fans know their team will overtake the East Londoners with a win and the manager added: “They’re a good team and I hope they’ll be there at the end of the season.”

Daggers boss Daryl McMahon is having sleepless nights.

Not only does his team make going out at night harder than ever, but he just became a father again.

But he was excited by what he saw Tuesday night in Chesterfield.

“I think we were fantastic tonight from start to finish,” McMahon said after the 3-2 victory.

“We should have made it four-nil at the start of the second half and then that would have ended the game.

“We knew we could hit them at the break and I thought we did it two or three times in the first five or 10 minutes in the second half.”
