Preview Line Up Report

Gateshead make the 602-mile round midweek trip to face Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday, August 15 (7:45pm kick off).

Despite largely positive performances so far, The Heed have just the one point to their name, with late goals against Boreham Wood and Hartlepool preventing Mike Williamson’s side from what would have been a win and a draw from their opening two.

Gateshead face a Dagenham & Redbridge side who have one point themselves so far, earning a point at Altrincham on the opening day before falling to a 2-0 defeat against Southend United on Saturday.

Ben Strevens’ men had to rely on a 98th minute equaliser from Harry Phipps to take a point from Altrincham, and return to home soil tonight with Strevens insisting his side must show a ‘much better level of performance’.

The Daggers’ free-scoring – and conceding – nature saw them finish eight points away from the play-offs despite having a minus 11 goal difference last term, the worst of any team in the top half.

Inih Effiong remains one of the hosts’ main danger-men with 23 league goals to his name last season, though he is still searching for his first of the new campaign.

Heed View

“All we can do is focus on stacking the odds in our favour to get the result,” said Mike Williamson.

“We’ve been punished for some individual mistakes, and we’ve got to make sure that we can eradicate as much as we can.”

Opposition View

“There’s certainly places up for grabs now,” said Daggers boss, Ben Strevens following Saturday’s defeat against Southend United.

“We’ve talked about our collective, a group, a togetherness, players wanting to play. There’s people sat on the bench who would’ve been desperate to play [against Southend[

“The boys that get picked have got to go and perform and the ones coming off the bench have got to impact it. It has to be better.

“We’ve got to show our people a much better level of performance than we did.”

Gateshead stormed to a dominant first win of the season by a 4-2 scoreline at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Luke Hannant and Marcus Dinanga both netted braces at the Chigwell Construction Stadium to secure three points, despite Inih Effiong and Charley Kendall’s strikes for the hosts.

Mike Williamson named the same starting 11 as began the game at Hartlepool, with Tom Allan replacing the injured Connor Pani on the bench being the only change to the squad.

Daggers looked to gain a foothold in the game early on, with Ben Strevens’ side searching for their first win themselves, though Tom Eastman’s wayward header at the back post was as good as they got in the opening stages.

Gateshead took control and dominated possession – as they had done in their opening two games – and worked their way into the box on a few occasions, but the final touch proved elusive when Louis Storey’s header bounced off Dinanga and into Elliot Justham’s hands.

Archie Mair was called upon to parry a 25-yarder clear at the other end, before Connor McBride sent a deflected shot into Justham’s hands in front of the away end.

Ten minutes before the break though, Gateshead grabbed the all-important first of the night, with Stephen Wearne’s inventive backheel finding Hannant in the box for him to smash into the far corner and get his first since returning to the club.

Wearne almost made it two within a minute of the opener only to be blocked by Justham’s outstretched limb, while at the other end Mair flung himself at a 25-yard free kick to keep the hosts out.

Dinanga joined the score-sheet seven minutes after half time, latching onto McBride’s through ball before chopping onto his left and finding the far corner to double Gateshead’s lead.

Despite Gateshead’s domination, Dagenham & Redbridge found a lifeline when substitute Effiong raced onto a loose pass across the box and bundled past Mair, though their hopes were snuffed out in just three minutes.

Dinanga and Wearne worked the ball across to Hannant on the left wing, before the former faced up his marker and cut onto his right to find the far corner yet again, restoring his side’s two-goal buffer.

Dinanga made it four with a brace of his own eight minutes later with a tap-in from point-blank range after Billy Chadwick had forced Justham to parry back into his own box, sealing all three points despite Kendall’s late consolation.
