Dagenham boss McMahon says his side are expecting a physical clash against Bromley
Dagenham & Redbridge manager Daryl McMahon insists his side know what to expect from Bromley and that they will pose a physical threat when they come up against each other this evening.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides this season, with the original fixture scheduled to take place on the December, 28 being called off due to confirmed Covid-19 test results within in the Bromley camp.
The two sides have served up some good matches in recent years, and with a number of ex-daggers in the Bromley squad, including Michael Cheek, Mark Cousins, Frankie Raymond, Billy Bingham and Tarek Naija.
The Ravens sit in 11th place in the National League table with a number of games in hand on their play-off contenders.
“They are an organised team who like to get their strikers in early, with lots of balls into the box and lots of set of set pieces,” said McMahon.

The Daggers are also looking to put right the wrongs of last week’s disappointing 3-1 defeat away at Notts County.
“We will be looking for a positive performance from us. I think that is the most important thing. You can never fight the outcome of the game with regards to the result, but you can put in a performance that gets you that result. I think first and foremost, we need to put in a positive, and much improved, performance.”
