Dag & Red vs Braintree Town
England – National League
Date: Tuesday, 4 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Chigwell Construction Stadium (Dagenham).
Two relegation-strapped sides, Dag & Red and Braintree Town are going to face each other in the 9th round of English National League.
The hosts have been putting very disappointing performances at the beginning of the season as they managed to remain undefeated just twice in the first eight games.
Elliot Romain and the lads haven’t been too productive, while their defence allowed too many goals.
In the last campaign, they managed to secure the place in the top half of the table, but now it seems they are going to struggle in order to keep their heads above the water.
Dag & Red have won all their points when playing at their ground and they are still searching for their first victory.
Braintree Town are not much better than their rivals as they managed to win just one point more. They also haven’t booked a win yet and a relegation struggle seems as reality for the visitors.
Bradley Quinton’s side is one of the most inefficient teams in the competition, while their defence is leaking everywhere.
The visitors got promoted from the National League South where they’ve snatched sixth position, but were the best team in the promotion playoffs.
They’ll have a very tough task not to slip down to where they’ve been last season.
Dag & Red vs Braintree Town: Head-to-head
These two sides played just two times against each other and both teams managed to book victories in front of their fans. The crowd at both grounds was able to enjoy at least three goals in total per match.
Dag & Red vs Braintree Town: Prediction
Both teams are playing really bad this season and this one is going to be very hard to predict. We’ll give a slight advantage to the hosts who should be able to book their first three points and start their getaway from the relegation zone.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches this season and although they are not too good in the front, their poor defensive work could lead this match above 2.5 margin. They should also continue their short tradition of high scoring matches.
