Daggers fan Daniel Law is writing a blog during the 2016/17 season

Four games in and Daggers have had a good start to the season; three wins already, two of which were at Victoria Road and the other a very convincing win at struggling Guiseley last weekend.

It’s still hard to believe Daggers only achieved three wins at home last season when after just two games at Victoria Road this campaign, they are already close to equalling that total. Last season, it felt as though it was a chore every time supporters walked through the turnstiles, but that has changed dramatically this term. There is certainly optimism around the ground with the players working hard and putting a solid shift in every game, something that couldn’t be said about most of the personnel last season.

Last weekend’s trip to Guiseley was certainly different to the dream surroundings and bigger crowds of the Football League that Daggers fans have become used to in recent seasons. Instead, there will be plenty of grounds like the Lions’ Nethermoor Park, a non-segregated and compact venue, that we will visit this year.

Up next is a trip to Woking on Saturday, with the Cards having gained just a solitary point so far, shipping eight goals in the process. Managed by former Daggers boss Garry Hill, Woking will be keen for their luck to turn sooner rather than later.

Hopefully another three points for John Still and his squad though. Come on you Daggers!
