All you need to know ahead of our opening day trip to Dagenham & Redbridge in the Vanarama National League.
Dagenham & Redbridge v Barrow
Saturday 5th August
Chigwell Construction Stadium
David Fitzpatrick will miss the game having been ruled out for 8 weeks. He picked up an injury in the warm up at Stockport County last Saturday.
The game comes too early for Byron Harrison, though he is scheduled to return in around 3 weeks.
Andy Parry and Joel Dixon continue their rehabilitation from long term injuries.
