Things look bleak for the Daggers as they are nine points adrift of safety with only eight matches left to play.
Hopes of a revival, raised when Dagenham kept three clean sheets in a row at the start of March, have been dashed by three successive defeats, the latest a 1-0 home reverse against Accrington Stanley.
For defender Worrall, who has made 14 appearances since moving to East London in January and midfielder Cash, signed at the beginning of the month and scorer of Dagenham’s goal in a 3-1 defeat at Hartlepool on his second appearance, it is a steep learning curve at a club who work tirelessly in their local community but whose financial resources mean an almost continual struggle to survive.
1,345 watched the Accrington game and surroundings are presumably a far cry from the City Ground but, under the tutelage of John Still, a manager who has presided over 1,700 matches in his career, they will be gaining the type of experience that doesn’t come in the Under-21’s.
Update: Tyler Walker has also been loaned out, the 19-year-old striker joining Nigel Clough's Burton Albion for the remainder of the season as the Brewers look to seal promotion from League One.
