Dagenham & Redbridge to host Leyton Orient in FA Cup first round

Neighbouring clubs to go head-to-head in knockout tie at Victoria Road

Dagenham & Redbridge will play hosts to neighbours Leyton Orient in the first round of the FA Cup.

The draw was made yesterday at Wembley Stadium with the tie to be played on the weekend beginning Saturday, November 6.

The sides have already met at Victoria Road this season when the Daggers defeated Russell Slade’s men 2-0 thanks to two goals from Romain Vincelot.
