LEAGUE 2 : TORQUAY UNITED - DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE
I do not rush to oppose teams desperate for points at this stage of the season, but I have to take on the Daggers tonight, they have had a nightmare ten days, losing a six pointer at home to Hereford United, crossing the Thames to receive a 5-0 hammering from Millwall in the cup, then travelling all the way to Crewe at the weekend to concede another four and now another long coach trip to deepest Devon, to face highflying Torquay United who are up to sixth after three straight road wins and can close to within five points of an automatic spot with the win tonight, they host basement club Northampton Town on saturday, so extra incentive for the win. Martin Ling knows how to get out of this division and has got the Gulls really playing well, no selection problems for him, he said yesterday "Everybody is fit and all 22 players trained together today," said Martin. "Our physio Damian Davey is taking all the credit at the moment and he's got his feet up"."It's brilliant to have everyone available and we'll go with the same 18-man squad we took to Morecambe on Saturday.
I have just watched highlights of a couple of recent Daggers games and they have really struggled to defend from dead balls and United have scored their opening goal from corners in three of their last five starts. I could see another collapse from Dagenham if they concede first tonight and they must be drained after so much time on the bus in the last 4-5 days. 1.5 units Torquay United -0.75 ball 1.91 asian line.
