Dagenham and Redbridge snapped a sequence of seven straight defeats in the FA Cup last weekend but it hardly suggests that they have turned the corner given that the Daggers only managed a home draw against Blue Square Premier’s bottom club Bath City.
It’s fair to suggest that John Still’s men remain in a rut then and it’s hard to see their situation improving as they welcome League Two leaders Southend to Victoria Road.
The Shrimpers have won four on the spin in the league and also held League One Preston to a cup draw at Deepdale, so they are undoubtedly in a rich vein of form and with six away wins in eight attempts to their name already this term, they’re hard to overlook at 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
Only Shrewsbury have conceded fewer home goals in League Two than Macclesfield and the solid form of the Silkmen at Moss Rose can continue this weekend as they tackle Accrington.
Bet365 quote Gary Simspon’s charges at 13/10 to get the better of Stanley, who are yet to pick up an away win and also available at 13/10 to prevail on their own patch, this time courtesy of Skybet, are Cheltenham.
The buoyant Robins caused an upset in the FA Cup last Saturday, edging out League One Tranmere at Prenton Park and flying high in third spot, they should have too much for patchy Port Vale.
Southend, Macclesfield and Cheltenham treble – 17/2 (Blue Square)
