OLLIE PALMER has welcomed the fact that Dagenham and Redbridge - title-chasing Wrexham’s opponents on the final day of the National League season - also have something to play for.

The Reds head to Victoria Road for Sunday’s huge showdown involved in a two-horse race for automatic promotion along with Stockport County, who entertain fourth placed Halifax Town in their last fixture.

Wrexham are guaranteed a top-two finish and will have a home play-off semi-final tie to look forward to if they miss out on the title, and they come up against a Dagenham side who are looking to extend their campaign.

The eighth placed Daggers are three points behind Chesterfield, who occupy the final play-off berth, and need to beat Wrexham and hope the Spireites lose against Woking to secure a top-seven finish.

January signing Palmer, who took his tally in Wrexham colours to 16 goals with a brace in last weekend’s brilliant 3-0 win against Stockport in the top of the table clash, is pleased that the Daggers are not just playing for pride.

“Let’s just see what happens in the last game of the season,” said Palmer, the club’s record signing.”

“It makes it more exciting because Dagenham have got to win to try and get in the play-offs.

“Sometimes when you play teams who have got nothing to play for it can be harder.

“They have got something to play for because if they win they could sneak into the play-offs so it makes it a bit more open for us.

“Let’s see if we can take advantage of that.”

Manager Phil Parkinson echoed his striker’s sentiments.

“It can work both ways but I am pleased they have got something to play for as well,” added Parkinson.
