This Saturday Dagenham & Redbridge visit Hayes Lane for the return Vanarama National League fixture, kick off 3.00 pm.
Just two months ago Bromley made the journey through the Dartford Tunnel for the corresponding fixture at Victoria Road, where they were defeated by the only goal of the game scored by Liam Gordon midway in the first half.
Bromley’s home form against our visitors since their relegation from the Football League in 2016 has been mixed, with two victories and two defeats. Last season at Hayes Lane the Ravens won 3-0, whilst the season before that it was the Essex club that recorded a 2-0 success.
In the 2017-18 season it was Bromley who won 3-1 to gain avenge for the 3-1 defeat they had suffered in 2016-17 season.
Bromley’s 1-1 draw at Victoria Road last season is the only point they have secured in five visits to that ground in the National League.
Dagenham had a mixed start to the season and found themselves courting the relegation spots early on. However, they have recovered somewhat and now stand in 17th place in the League standings with 37 points from 31 games.
Over the Easter weekend Dagenham & Redbridge lost both of their fixtures: going down at Hartlepool United on Good Friday, and losing at home to Aldershot Town on Easter Monday.
After this fixture Bromley have three consecutive away fixtures, starting on Tuesday with a trip to Woking.
