Dag & Red in LDV Cup
The Harriers have been drawn away to Dagenham & Redbridge in the first round of the LDV Trophy.
The game is to be played during the week starting 21st October and will be played to the death. If it's not decided after 90 minutes then extra time will be played during which a Golden Goal will be used. If there is still no score then penalties will come into play to decide the winner.
This is the first time that non league sides have been allowed to join in and is seen by many as a forerunner of extending the Football League to accommodate more clubs.
Other ties involving local clubs are:
Cambridge United v Rushden & Diamonds
Cheltenham Town v Colchester United
Hereford United v Northampton Town
Shrewsbury Town v Morecambe
We should be able to get a result in Essex. Dagenham are not having the best of season's this time round, at the moment they lie mid table in the Conference and are struggling both home and away.
