Bingham and Scott still out as Daggers prepare for FA Cup

Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still knows his side face an uphill struggle at League One Bournemouth.

Dagenham & Redbridge take a break from league action as they make the trip to League One side AFC Bournemouth in the first round of the FA Cup tomorrow.

The Cherries have picked up drastically since former boss Eddie Howe was re-appointed as manager earlier this month.

And though wary of the challenge his side faces, Still knows the form book can be thrown right out of the window in FA Cup matches.

“Every draw you would like to be at home, but as far as I am concerned it is the FA Cup. Whatever happens, happens and there is always going to be some shock.

You may also want to watch:

“If sides play to form then there would never be any shocks.

“They have picked up considerably since Eddie Howe has gone back there and it is always going to be a tough place to go.”
