Defender says Blues have their sights set on a return to Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy
Luke Prosser is expecting to face a very different Dagenham & Redbridge side on Tuesday night in the second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
The defender, who scored his first goal for Blues since March 2012 on Saturday against Oxford United, says Wayne Burnett’s side will pose a different threat to what they have done in the past.
He said: “Dagenham & Redbridge are doing well in the league at the moment and are playing some good football by all accounts. I think they will pose more of a threat to what they used to and will prove to be a tough side to beat.
“They’ve enjoyed a good start to the season so will have plenty of confidence, but we come into the game on the back of an important win on Saturday and we want to start a winning run now.”
With Blues facing the Daggers in the league just a couple of weeks after this tie, Luke says it’s a good opportunity to learn a bit more about the opposition ahead of that game.
He said: “I’m not sure what sort of changes either side will make. There’s always a good atmosphere in any cup competition and as we face them again in a couple of weeks, both sides will want to have the upper hand going in to that one.
“It will also give both teams a bit more of an idea ahead of that game in the league in a couple of weeks.”
Having played a key role in Blues’ route to the final last year, Luke has set his sights on trip back to Wembley this season.
“It’s a cup competition where you can play at Wembley, very few people can say that. It’s a good competition and we want to do well in it.
“Having won on Saturday it will have given us a bit of a confidence boost that I’m sure we’ll take into the game against Dagenham.”
