The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

MID­FIELDER Luke How­ell has blasted the knock­ers who tipped Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge as ‘rel­e­ga­tion favourites’ in pre-sea­son.

The Dag­gers are cur­rently safe in mid-ta­ble, with the dan­ger of drop­ping out of the Foot­ball League now look­ing re­mote.

And Wayne Bur­nett’s troops are ea­ger to fin­ish the sea­son with a flour­ish

“I think we’re al­ways one of the favourites to go down. To be hon­est, I don’t know what they’re bas­ing it on as we fin­ished ninth last sea­son,” said the 28-yearold.

“With the group of play­ers we’ve had over the years, we’ve al­ways felt that we can fin­ish higher.”

How­ell has been shifted from his usual po­si­tion in the cen­tre of mid­field to the right-hand side in re­cent games but has no com­plaints.

“I’m still en­joy­ing it out on the right wing, I feel as though I’m learn­ing to play a dif­fer­ent role,” he added.

“As long as I’m play­ing and the team is do­ing well I’m happy to be out there.”
