Manager Comments:

Neil Harris - "I respect the FA Cup massively and I want to get through.

"The players and the fans need a lift at the moment. Finding success in the next two games, getting through in the cup and a positive result in the league, would certainly boost us.

"Leicester at home is the attraction."


Daryl McMahon - “Looking back on the game here [The original tie at Dagenham], I thought we were very good here. We drew that game and I thought we were excellent on the day, and we will have to do the same again for us to go and get a result at Gillingham.”


Previous Meetings:

In the original tie between the two sides at the end of November, all the drama occurred during the final ten minutes. Josh Walker gave The Daggers the lead with ten minutes remaining as he got beyond two Gillingham defenders before slotting past Jake Turner.

Scott Kashket equalised during stoppage time as he got on the end of Jordan Green’s ball into the six-yard box and found the back of the net with a first-time effort.
