Altrincham FC prepare to take on Dagenham and Redbridge this Saturday in another crucial clash at the J Davidson Stadium.

The Robins, who sit nine points above the relegation places, look to open a buffer zone between themselves and the bottom three clubs with a win this weekend. Three points could see Altrincham move up from 20th to 16th in the National League.  

Phil Parkinson’s side have not played a game in nearly two weeks after last Saturday’s fixture against relegation rivals Weymouth was postponed.

Matchday tickets for the Weymouth game, which were purchased by fans in their thousands at a discounted rate of £5, will be valid for the rearranged fixture, with a date yet to be confirmed.

Altrincham have averaged over 2000 fans per game this season

Alty’s next opponents may be safe from relegation but they are also facing their own form struggles. The Daggers, as they are nicknamed, have just one win in their last six games.

The East London club are currently coached by Daryl McMahon, the former manager of bitter rivals Macclesfield Town.

In team news for the Robins, Kennedy Digie has been sent out on loan to Farsley Celtic for an initial one-month period.

Altrincham won the reverse fixture 3-2

At the same time, Phil Parkinson has brought in 21-year-old Harry Perritt on loan from Accrington Stanley. The centre-back will be with the Robins until the end of the season and is available for selection this Saturday.

Matchday tickets for the Dagenham and Redbridge game can be bought here, although entry can be gained by paying on the gate.

For those unable to make Saturday’s fixture, Radio Robins will be broadcasting live from the ground and the club will be providing match updates from Twitter.
