Lee Bradbury is looking ahead to the Hawks’ trip to Dagenham and Redbridge tomorrow in this midweek edition of the Managers Office.


Both teams go into the fixture at the Chigwell Construction stadium on the back of wins, with the victor tomorrow night potentially opening up some breathing space at the bottom of the table.


The Hawks have won three of their last four games and the gaffer is hoping to make that count against a Daggers side, who themselves have enjoyed a resurgence of late.


“It’s a really big game for us.” Said the Hawks gaffer. “But we go into it in good form.


“We’ve won three and drawn one of our last four games and in out last away game performed very well, so we go in there confident, but at the same time knowing Dagenham are on their own good run as well, so we’re expecting a tough game up there.”


Victory tomorrow night for either side, opens up the possibility to put breathing space between themselves and the bottom four. Despite the gaffer knowing the price of victory, he knows that there is still a lot of life left in the season.


“It is (for now), but at the end of the season these points could be big and we’ve got to make sure that we pick up points against teams in and around us and hopefully we can do the same tomorrow night.”


With performances in an upward trajectory, Bradbury hopes that they can continue the form of late which has impressed the Hawks boss.


“I’ve been pleased with all of our performances in the last four or five games.


“We’re starting now to get a bit of the rub of the green and a bit of luck.


“At the start of the season, we were playing well and losing by the odd goal with things going against us.


“Thankfully now we’ve turned that corner with the belief and the confidence is flowing through the team at the moment, so we need to keep building, not take anything for granted and keep working hard.”


With the Hawks having played each team in the top half bar Eastleigh, the gaffer is pleased that his side are picking up points against teams in and around us in the table.


“We’ve played a lot of the top sides earlier on in the season and it was a bit of a shock to us, going into a new league that we’ve not played in and a lot of the lads haven’t played in and took a bit of getting use to.


“Now I feel we’re over that, got use to this level, the competitiveness of the games, and I think we’ve got to grips with that, so hopefully we can continue.”
