Match Preview : Wycombe v Dagenham & Redbridge

This Saturday Wycombe entertain Dagenham & Redbridge at Adams Park in what promises to be a tough battle between two form teams.

Wycombe lie in 3rd place with 14 points and Dagenham in 5th place with 13 points.

The Blues have the best defensive record in the League, having conceded only one goal so far.

The Daggers however, boast the best scoring record in the division with 16 goals to their credit.

Dagenham have notched up victories over Chester, Lincoln, Morecambe and Chesterfield, drawn with Port Vale and suffered defeat at the hands of Brentford.

The Dagenham strikers are finding the net, Paul Benson has 4 goals, Ben Strevens 3 goals, and Mark Nwokeji 2 goals. However, it's midfielder Sam Saunders who finds himself the Daggers' top scorer with 5 league goals to his name so far this season.

Wycombe will be hoping to start taking more of the goal scoring chances they have been creating at home. They have won only one of their three home games so far this season and would dearly like a home record to match their excellent away form.

In last seasons' encounters between the two sides the Daggers came out ahead. The two teams drew 2-2 early in the season at Victoria Road and Dagenham were 1-0 winners at Adams Park in January, courtesy of a Rainford penalty on the stroke of half time.

Wycombe's line up should be interesting. Last season's top scorer Scott McGleish has just been fined by manager Peter Taylor for showing dissent after being substituted. McGleish has worked hard for the team this season but has yet to score from open play. He also has new striker Matt Harrold, Wales U21 international Simon Church and Summer signing Magno Vieira all breathing down his neck for a starting spot.

In midfield, Gary Holt has not recovered from injury and will not be available for selection. Teenager Matty Phillips looked very impressive during his substitute appearance against Brentford and is pressing hard for a starting position on one of the flanks.

Few expected the Daggers to be among the early pacesetters this season, but their free scoring exploits so far make this another difficult test for the Chairboys.

Prediction

Wycombe - 3 Dagenham - 1

The Blues to start finding their form in front of goal
