Oldham become the latest side to visit the ‘pub team from Essex’

Dagenham & Redbridge are the undoubted minnows of the division and, with the Latics in rampant form, they will surely have a tough time at the weekend.

The Daggers’ form has taken a turn for the worse in recent times with only one win form five and consecutive defeats in their last two fixtures. Players, staff and fans must only be anticipating one result this weekend.

Not on Paul Dickov’s watch. The Scot has pointed to the FA Cup defeat to Accrington Stanley should complacency begin to creep in to his charges’ attitudes.

Oldham were humbled by the League Two side; falling three goals behind before scrambling some credibility in the form of two consolation goals. The abject display was met with displeasure by Dickov and a similar reaction may be around the corner if his side fail to get the three points down in London.

They will have to line-up without the suspended Dean Furman, who has been amongst the goals recently. The South African-born midfielder has already lit up the capital with a splendid strike at Charlton earlier this season and will be sorely missed in the centre of the park.

With Dickov forced to make a change, John Still’s plucky underdogs could have the chance they need to spring a surprise and derail Oldham’s momentum once again.

Following the wonderful victory against Huddersfield last weekend, that will be the last thing the rookie manager will want.

Expect the Latics’ starting 11 to be on red alert come Saturday.
