Still confident Daggers can bounce back against Port Vale
Dagenhaam & Redbridge manager John Still believes expectation around the club has grown after their recent run of form.
Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still is confident his side can get back to their best when they host high-flying Port Vale tomorrow at Victoria Road.
The Daggers chief was disappointed with their showing in the 3-0 home loss to local rivals Southend United on Boxing Day, but they have a chance to bounce back against Micky Adams’ Valiants.
And Still looks set to stick with a similar side despite it being their second fixture inside four days.
“Sometimes people don’t play well, when they have played so well you have to stick with them,” said Still after the 3-0 loss.

“If they don’t do it for two or three then maybe ok it is time for a change.”
But with their previous good run of just two defeats in seven games prior to the Shrimpers clash, the Victoria Road chief believed expectation had risen because of that run.

“What I have said to the players is, whether we won or lost today we have had a great run of games where we have done really well,” he added.
“When you do that a bit of expectation changes but it doesn’t change it for me as I know where we are, what we are doing and why we do it.”
