Dagenham’s statement on the postponement said: “The Club can confirm that today’s scheduled Vanarama National League fixture against Woking has been postponed.
“Due to concerns over COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the decision has been made for the safety of all of our staff and supporters.
“The Club will provide a further update for supporters as soon as possible. ”
A meeting is expected to see the National League suspend their season, potentially until April just like the Premier League and EFL have done.
Fans gave their reaction as Woking say they are not aware of why their match against Dagenham was postponed…

Think your right. We could be fishing for the points by the sounds of it.

But if that was the case BOTH clubs would need to be in agreement. Clubs can’t just say ‘we’re not sending a team’. The claim is that Dag did not disclose to Woking the reason for not sending a team.

This is exactly why the League should have called all games off. I know the National League are saying that they’re following government advice, but they should have followed the EFL and the PL. The league is to blame for this.

Disgraceful statement to put out at a time like this. Shame on you.

Seriously this is embarrassing, both from the club and the fans trying to justify it. Here’s a interesting one: what if a player came down with suspected COVID-19 on Saturday morning? How could they tell you any earlier if they didn’t know? Idiots man

You played Barnet last tuesday, who yesterday called off their match with #YTFC due to a suspected case of Coronavirus. Could that be the reason? Salty much?
