Archant’s Dave Evans, George Sessions and Ned Keating discuss the latest topics affecting our clubs

Following the stress of conceding a last-gasp equaliser to West Brom last weekend, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic could probably do with a weekend off.

And with the Hammers no longer involved in the FA Cup this season, the Croatian and his squad have jetted off to the warmth of Dubai for a ‘training camp’.

Bilic was fined £8,000 for hurling a TV microphone on the touchline, following the 2-2 draw with the Baggies, but has plenty of time to ponder his next step ahead of his team’s return to Premier League action at Watford next weekend.

Leyton Orient have had arguably their best week of a difficult season, after snatching a late point at Yeovil Town and an even later win at high-flying Plymouth.

Sandro Semedo’s injury-time strike at Home Park gave new boss Danny Webb his first victory in charge and O’s will now go into their Brisbane Road clash with Kevin Nolan’s Notts County in much happier mood this weekend.

Dagenham & Redbridge will look to maintain their promotion push in the National League with a home meeting against Guiseley on their annual Daggers Against Racism Day.

John Still’s men ran out 4-1 winners at Southport last weekend to remain on the heels of leaders Lincoln City, who are distracted somewhat by their FA Cup fifth round trip to Burnley tomorrow.

Our correspondents Dave Evans, George Sessions and Ned Keating share their thoughts in our latest podcast, presented by Archant London’s executive digital editor Matt Withers.
