The Lions make a return to action on Saturday with a visit to Nethermoor from Dagenham and Redbridge with kick-off at 3pm.
Last Tuesday’s home win was followed with a 4-0 humbling away at Sutton United on Saturday with three goals coming in the second half to kill off the hopes of getting a result on the road for the first time since Boxing Day.
Then poor weather conditions cancelled our hopes of putting the heavy defeat behind us quickly as our fixture with Barrow at Nethermoor was postponed.
Saturday’s visitors have had a turbulent few weeks with players departing to ease the financial concerns at the Essex based side.
They are also due to host West Ham United next month as their local Premier League side back the #SaveTheDaggers campaign.
The Daggers sealed a comeback win last weekend beating Chester 3-2 with two goals in the final four minutes.
That was their first home three points since a 4-2 victory over Hartlepool United on 6th January.
They have had mixed results on the road in the last couple of weeks with a 3-0 win at Torquay which was followed with a 1-0 reverse at Dover Athletic.
Following Saturday’s loss Sean St Ledger said “It is a disappointing result, we’ve played one of the best sides in the league but some of the goals conceded were not good enough.”
Rowan Liburd is enjoying his partnership with Dayle Southwell “Dayle is a great player, he has a lot of attributes that anyone can work with. Him playing alongside me is just a bonus, another threat for the defenders to deal with.”
“We have worked well in the short space of time we have played together.”
On his return from injury Will Hatfield said “Of course it is great to be back on the pitch. It’s been a long time out and that’s been frustrating.”
“I’m back now and feeling really good.”
Ahead of Saturday’s fixture we also caught up with Adam Crookes who feels “We need to win a lot more games to gain our safety in this league.”
Talking about his time at Nethermoor so far the defender said “It has been good, definitely a learning curve for me. I am just enjoying my time here, there are some experienced players in the dressing room that are definitely helping me out on and off the pitch.”
“Hopefully it will help with my development and obviously I have come here to help the club as well.”
