Tough challenge for Daggers with Barnet ‘fighting for their lives’

Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still wary of threat posed by basement Bees.

Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still knows his side cannot afford to underestimate Barnet on Saturday at Victoria Road.

The Bees are bottom of League Two, but Daggers chief Still believes they are a “dangerous” opponent.

“Games are always tough,” said Still after the 1-0 victory at Bristol Rovers.

“When they are over you go back and think that wasn’t too bad but you know what, we played a team today that’s fighting for their lives and and that makes Barnet a dangerous opponent.”

Daggers go into the game having won four of their last six league games with a much more settled squad and Still believes that is the main reason behind their recent form.

He added: “We’ve come a long way from last season in terms of having players available so I can pick a regular team. That’s the key and if we can keep that going I think we have a lot more wins in us.
