One of the relegation 6 pointers takes place at Mansfield as they host a recently much improved dagenham side.

Nothing between the sides league wise, and with dagenham on good form, but mansfield picking up 10 points from the last 5 home games, it could be close.

Dagenham won the reverse fixture pretty easily with us still managed by paul cox, whereas dagenhams last visit to field mill ended in a woeful 3-0 defeat.

Prediction - anyone's game by just a goal

Not sure what to expect, although our record against sides down the bottom is pretty good this season so hopefully we'll take a point which I'll be pretty content with.

Choo Choo Choo Jeffery Monakana to do his best Tom Daley to win us it?

I actually think with our luck at the moment when we do eventually get a penalty we will miss. Any idea who will take them? Hope it's Heslop, he's 22/1 to score first, could be worth a few quid.

Bad feeling about the next few games for us. I'd take a point.

My optimism is well and truly gone after last weeks poor showing. Hopefully our home form will continue. I will take an educated guess this game will be a low scoring affair, with either team sneaking a 1-0 victory.

We deserved that however I suppose it could've gone either way! Jack Thomas had another good game, his passing is excellent, he put a beautiful pin point cross in first half that Oliver should've scored from. He's gonna be a star and unfortunately I think we will only see him at Field Mill for another year at the most, barring a bad injury.

Dagenham fans were nice people.

Should have put a big bet on that, so predictable.

Tempted to stick 20 on Hartlepool beating us Tuesday. We were always getting suckered back into this.

That was a bad game.

The first half was truely terrible, really really bad. Nothing happened.

The second half was where it all happened, we came out of the traps well and scored and dominated the 2nd half.

Curetons leveller was a brilliant move though, easily pass of the game.

Should Kee have been sent off for his challenge on Ogogo? Not there today myself, but our radio commentary said it was studs up above the ankle. He wasn't impressed with the booing of Ogogo after the challenge as well.

No way in my eyes, I LOVE them challenges, it was clean as a whistle through the ball, didn't even touch Ogogo but he was sent flying through the sheer impact of the challenge. However the way football is going a lot of soft refs would've given a red. Hopefully they show it on the FL show tonight so you can see yourself. It's probably the ex-rugby player in me which loves a strong but fair challenge, football is going far too soft.

Ogogo was absolutely fine, everybody knew it and he walked towards us in the Ian Greaves stand laughing and winking.

Forgive me for not mentioning it.

For me, yes it was a red, your lad went down in a heap and we ended up putting the ball out.

There is 4 of us in our group I sit with and I was 1 of 2 who said it was a straight red and the other 2 said it wasn't.

I'd have gone up in protest had it been against us and I think we got lucky

Was deffo a red for Kee but we luckily got away with it (we more than deserve a bit of luck so I apologies for my apathy), he just jumped in two footed rashly. Your lad was booed because he rolled around on the floor afterwards for a good while whilst we played on then as soon as the game stopped he was perfectly fine which I think no football fan has no time for.

We did deserve to win on balance, Dagenham's goal was their only problem they caused Pidgely the rest he caused himself which was worrying. We had two cleared off the line and their 'keeper made a few good saves so it should/could have been more but we need to be more clinical and put games to bed. All eyes on Tuesday now, I'm expecting us to do our usual trick and lose miserably however I'd love to be wrong and us actually get a bit of momentum going.

Think we just about edged it today , tbf you can see daggers upsetting a few, at times they we're 1 step ahead of us today just at little things like moves from throw ins and corners , I think they'll be safe , kee was a red now days , but IMO there harsh nothing wrong with a hard challange , get jack Thomas on 3 year decent contract before he's snapped up by forest or derby !!!!!

Awful match. One of them when you leave and wonder how those 22 players get paid to be a professional footballer. The winning goal was coming, so obvious. Every long throw was flicked on by your CB. Not pretty but effective as we didn't put anyone big on him, not sure why we didn't!!

That surprised me too Richie, after about the 3rd time he did it I looked over and Dagenham had put a right short bloke on him again, I just laughed and said 'Taff has won this again'.

Best day I've had at Field Mill for years, match ball sponsers and I won that free season ticket for the Luton attendence comp. Kevin Bird said it's just a shame you've got to to come and watch Mansfield! Hahaha

The game was awful but 3 points is all that matters. Daggers goal was as good a passing move as I've seen this season. If we can go and get a point at Newport that will be fantastic!
