6 October 2020

The Bees will look to bounce back from opening day defeat as they make the short trip to take on Dagenham and Redbridge in their second league match of the season.


Dagenham and Redbridge vs Barnet FC

Tuesday, October 6th 2020, 19:45 KO

Chigwell Construction Stadium 

Vanarama National League - Matchday 2 


Form: L 

Last match: FC Halifax Town 2-0 Dagenham and Redbridge 

Manager: Daryl McMahon 

Captain: Kenny Clark 

The Daggers lost out in their first league match of the season, as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to FC Halifax Town at The Shay Stadium. McMahon's side conceded a goal either side of half-time, as Summerfield first converted a penalty on the stroke of the break before Earing sealed the points for the Shaymen with a second-half strike. 

After a 17th placed finish last season, the Daggers have invested heavily in the summer making several signings in the build-up to the new campaign. This includes three former Bees in Paul McCallum, Elliot Johnson and Callum Reynolds who all made the switch from North to East London this summer following the end of their contracts with the Bees. Elsewhere they acquired former Dartford striker Darren McQueen and former Aldershot midfielder Dean Rance as part of their nine new signings to date. On the other hand, tonight's hosts have also seen several faces leave the Club since the end of last season, with no fewer than 12 departing ahead of the new campaign. 

With so much investment over the summer period, there will be a weight of expectation on the Daggers to be right up there this season, it makes for an intriguing encounter this evening. 



The Bees must show a response following Saturday's opening day disappointment to Eastleigh. It'll be a tough clash against a new look Dagenham side, but boss Peter Beadle will be expecting a reaction from his side in East London this evening. Defensive mistakes cost the Bees dearly on Saturday afternoon, but the boys must now put that behind them and look to react with a stronger showing in tonight's London derby.

In similar fashion to other sides in the division, there has been a large overhaul of players at The Hive London, with Peter Beadle's side needing to gel quickly with the shorter pre-season we have had. However, the boss is keen to not use that as an excuse and demanded his side ensure they right the wrongs from Saturday afternoon. In Ephron Mason-Clark, JJ Hooper and co, the Bees have attacking threat amongst a talented group of players and they'll be hoping to show that in this evening's clash with Dagenham. 


Peter Beadle - speaking post-Eastleigh about reacting tonight. 

"There's only one group of people who can put this right now and that is us as a group. The team have got to go out on Tuesday and show people that they have every right to have faith in them, which I have and I am sure the supporters will when they see the better side of them."

Match Reports

Match Pack: Dagenham & Redbridge 1-2 Barnet

6 October 2020

The Bees made a remarkable comeback to claim their first win of the season as they beat the Daggers 2-1 at Victoria Road. After going a goal behind in the first half, the Bees kept in themselves in the game, eventually being rewarded with an equaliser courtesy of JJ Hooper from the spot. Moments later, Elliot Richards put the Bees into the lead and with that claimed a big away win.


The game itself had a fiery start to it, as was to be expected, with the added value of a London Derby attached to it.

The first real chance fell to the Bees as Wesley Fonguck produced a better corner than his first, with the ball landing at Hooper's feet, whose powerful effort was just about parried away by Elliot Justham.

The Bees continued to threaten the Daggers goal with Alex McQueen given a chance to score against his old club, but his free-kick found itself on the wrong side of the post.

The Daggers began to grow into the game with 20 minutes on the clock, having a larger proportion of the possession and beginning to threaten Scott Loach's goal.

Although both sides were having chances, in reality, they were mainly half-chances and weren't of any real threat.

However, just before the thirty-minute mark, the Daggers opened the scoring when Angelo Balanta headed in from a well timed cross.

The Bees could have found themselves straight back in the game, three minutes later, when Hooper did well to play in Fonguck, but his shot was too tame to pose any danger to Justham's goal.

McQueen in an almost identical position to his first free-kick played in a threatening cross which led to a corner. Fonguck received the ball from a short corner but hit his shot wide of the mark.

The start of the second half mirrored that of the first with an intense showing from both sets of players, but no real pattern to the play.

The next goal would be vital and you could tell the players could sense that, with neither side really committing numbers in attack.

With an hour of the game played, the hosts were reduced to ten men, after Luke Croll received a second yellow card for dissent.

It took just over twenty minutes for the first real chance of the half, as the Bees broke through, with Eliot Richards trying his luck from outside the area, which was held firmly by Justham as Hooper was closing in.

The Daggers, who had been relatively quiet since the restart nearly doubled their lead with 15 minutes to go. Mitch Brundle launched a free-kick which caused all sorts of problems in the Bees area with the ball eventually being blasted off the bar from Callum Reynolds, somehow not going in.

Jerome Binnon-Williams had been a constant threat down the left hand side and with ten minutes to go, fizzed a dangerous cross along the ground, which just evaded any of the Bees oncoming forwards.

But, with 6 minutes to go, the Bees had a chance to equalise after Elliott Johnson handled the ball in the area. The resulting penalty was calming placed in the bottom right hand corner of the goal by Hooper, setting up an exciting finale to the game.

After being behind for the majority of the game, The Bees suddenly found themselves in front, less than 3 minutes after equalising, when Richards tried yet again from outside the box with an effort on goal, which just crept its way past Justham.

The Daggers though didn't give up on getting something from the game, getting themselves a flurry of corners, which they were unable to make much of and with that the Bees claimed all three points.


Barnet Team: Loach, Preston, Dunne, McQueen, Richards (Duffus 90+1'), Hooper, Taylor, Fonguck, Binnon-Williams, Mason-Clark (Pavey 71'), Nugent
