High-flying Robins on the road to high-end Dagenham


The Robins travel to east London today as they prepare to face Dagenham and Redbridge at the top of the National League table.

After beating Notts County 2-1 and King’s Lynn Town 4-1 in their previous two matches, Alty heads into this afternoon’s game full of confidence.

Talk to Radio-Robins after Tuesday night’s game against King’s Lynn, Phil Parkinson said, “We should have scored around 8. That’s my only criticism tonight.

“But I don’t think we’ve scored four goals at this level before, so it shows how far we’ve come.”

Robins celebrate Alty’s second goal

After securing four wins out of six possible matches, Altrincham now sits in 8th place – just one spot outside of the playoffs.

However, Parkinson’s insists on his side not getting too carried away.

“[Altrincham] hits above its weight, ”said Parkinson

He added: “Nine times out of 10 we’ll be the underdogs in any game. Guys deserve all the support they get.

After an inconsistent start to the 2020/21 campaign, Dagenham & Redbridge ended their campaign in good form, narrowly missing out on a playoff spot.

The Daggers have 19 points in 8 games this season.

“When you think about what we have to come, Dagenham and Grimsby… it doesn’t get much bigger,” Parkinson said.

He added: “We have done very well to get the points that we have so far.”

To stand a chance of winning this afternoon, players will need fans more than ever, according to Parkinson.

“[The fans] help us move forward as a football club, if you want to be a great football club, we need that big audience – and we certainly have it now, ”said Parkinson.

He added: “They have been great.”

Radio Robins will broadcast live from the ground. Alternatively, the club will provide match updates on their official Twitter account.
