FA Umbro Trophy, 3rd Round
Victoria Road
Saturday 12th January 2002
3:00pm
Daggers Scrape Through
Dagenham & Redbridge scraped through to the 4th Round of the FA Trophy for the first time in three season, beating Eastbourne Borough 1-0 at Victoria Road courtesy of a deflected Danny Shipp goal.

Following the heroics against Ipswich the week before, it was a disappointing crowd of only 1,354 that saw a dour encounter played out today under overcast grey skies.

With Eastbourne having brought six coachloads of supporters to the match, the Dagenham & Redbridge officials must wonder what they need to do to attract the floating supporters back to Victoria Road.

Garry Hill chose to start Jason Broom in place of Ashley Vickers and to play Mark Brennan (left) in midfield. Steve McGavin was preferred to Danny Hayzelden on the left. It came as a welcome relief to hear Tim Cole's return as a substitute although he didn't actually appear during the match..

The early encounters saw chances for both sides with the Daggers seemingly unable to settle into their normal rhythm. Neither side created many chances and the play was fairly even. With Sports' number 3, John Scarborough particularly impressive, Eastbourne defended exceptionally well and prevented any real threat from the Daggers' attack.

After around twenty minutes of the match, the home side appeared to settle more and shut out the main threat from the Eastbourne forward line. However, it was Daggers' custodian, Tony Roberts who needed to be alert to save a fierce shot low and to his left.

Neither side though was able to break the deadlock and the first half ended level.

At the break, Garry Hill replaced Steve Heffer with Paul Terry.

With Eastbourne defending well, the home side were unable to make much headway into the Sports' area and most of the attacking play was easily dealt with by the impressive Paul Stark in the Eastbourne goal. Eastbourne, however, were finding it increasingly difficult to have any attacking play and seemed more than happy to soak up the pressure and play for a replay.

Tony Roberts was pretty much a spectator for the whole of the second half as Eastbourne were restricted in the midfield and were unable to create any chances.

As a rather dull half wore on, neither side looked much like breaking the deadlock. However, at one point, Junior McDougald (right) appeared to be felled in the area but the somewhat inconsistent referee waved play-on.

Towards the end of the half, the home fans thought the breakthrough had been made when a diving header from Steve McGavin (left) beat Stark but crashed against the post.

The goal did come eventually though, in the 89th minute when Danny Shipp (right) fired in a shot from the left which deflected past Stark and into the corner of the goal to send the Daggers into the 4th Round Draw on Monday Lunchtime.

Considering the excellent display put on by the Eastbourne team, it was very surprising that they didn't show much acknowledgement to their large travelling support.
