Sloma aids Daggers’ re­vival

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BYDANNYCARO

LEAGUE 2 Sam Sloma played the su­per­sub role as he came off the bench to help Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge main­tain League 2 sta­tus af­ter com­ing from two goals down to win at Dar­ling­ton.

The 25-year-old mid­fielder started the come­back with a close-range fin­ish seven min­utes af­ter join­ing the ac­tion. The strike was his sec­ond in the league and fourth of the cam­paign.

Sloma said: “It’s a mas­sive weight off our shoul­ders. I didn’t think we’d go down but trail­ing 2-0 against a team that has qual­i­fied for the play­offs, things looked omi­nous. Last year we were win­ning ev­ery week and it be­comes a habit. It’s the same when you’re los­ing but it’s great to be safe.”

A change in for­ma­tion and tac­tics has seen Sloma play a bit part in re­cent weeks. He said: “I haven’t played as much as I’d have liked to so it was pleas­ing to be in­volved again.”

He ex­pects to hear if he will be of­fered a con­tract dur­ing the next fort­night.
