Daggers to suffer immediate return to League Two

| 06.05.2011

Three teams could still fill the final relegation spot in League One this season and the chances do not look good on Dagenham and Redbridge surviving the drop.

Last year’s League Two play-off victors currently occupy the final relegation spot and sit one point behind Walsall, while Notts County are a further point clear.

However, the chances of the Daggers overcoming this deficit do not look good as their final fixture is away at play-off bound Peterborough, who they lost to at home in League One last month.

Dagenham and Redbridge are 13/5 in the League One odds to secure a vital victory, but Peterborough certainly look more than good value to land the spoils at 10/11, given they have not lost at home in 2011.

The draw that could keep the Daggers up is available at 11/4.

Walsall will be hoping that Dagenham fail to get a result as they face perhaps an even bigger challenge at Southampton.

Southampton have won 12 of their last 14 league games to seal their promotion to the Championship next season and have won the last eight at St Mary’s.

They also look underpriced in the League One betting at 8/11 to end the season in style with a win, with Walsall 7/2 to take the maximum points.

Both Dagenham and Redbridge and Walsall have to win if Notts County are to have a chance of going down, but they could end any lingering doubts with a win in their final game.

However, their chances of securing a valuable success are also not the best as they host title winners Brighton.

Notts County are 5/4 to beat Brighton and this is not beyond the realms of possibility given that Brighton have taken their foot of the pedal of late and gone three games without a win.

A £30 stake on Southampton beating Walsall 2-0 would return £180. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
