Dagenham set to buy in the January sales

Boss John Still reveals plans to sign new players

Manager John Still has confirmed Dagenham & Redbridge will be active in the transfer market when the window reopens in January.

Despite taking four points from their last two games and climbing off the bottom of League Two, Still feels Daggers need a touch more quality to achieve their goal of survival.

And with several players currently sidelined through injury, the Daggers boss wants to bring in reinforcements.

“Will we do anything in January? I think we will,” he said.

“We’ll try to make ourselves a little bit stronger, because Luke Howell and Sam Williams are probably not going to play this year.

“So we might need to make a change or two in a few areas.”

The recent loan arrivals of Michael Spillane and Cristian Montano in particular, have given Daggers a much-needed lift.

Spillane’s goal at Burton Albion last week saw the club draw to end a run of nine straight defeats, while Montano’s brace against Barnet on Boxing Day helped Daggers to their second league win since August.

The pair arrived in November alongside Exodus Geohaghon and Adam Cunnington, who have also made their first team debuts.

Striker Cunnington is expected to make his loan move permanent next month.
