Dagenham & Redbridge set for three new signings

Boss John Still wants to sign a goalkeeper, plus two attacking options before the weekend

Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still plans to strengthen his squad with up to three new faces before Saturday’s crunch game at Plymouth Argyle.

Still is currently putting the finishing touches on deals for two attacking players and a new goalkeeper, that he hopes to complete tomorrow (Friday).

Following Chris Lewington’s red card against Cheltenham Town on Saturday, Daggers lost an appeal against the dismissal and the 23-year-old must now serve a two-game ban.

That leaves Still with only one first-team goalkeeper available – Dave Hogan – and the Daggers boss revealed that area of the pitch was not the only one he hoped to strengthen.
