Daggers Reclaim Top Spot
The Daggers reclaimed top spot in the hunt for the Nationwide Conference Championship, drawing 3-3 with third placed Yeovil Town in a close encounter at Huish Park.

Following the poor performance against Hayes last Tuesday, manager Garry Hill changed the team round considerably, moving Dean Hooper (left) and Matt Jones into wing back positions. Up front, Ken Charlery was dropped in favour of Junior McDougald. With Vickers suspended, The Daggers played in what was basically a 3-5-2 formation with the ever-impressive Mark Smith partnered by Lee Goodwin and Steve West at the back, Danny Shipp, Steve Heffer and Paul Terry in the middle.

The opeining exchanges were predominantly in the Yeovil half with the Daggers setting their stall out from the start. Two early efforts for Danny Shipp were wasted and it was Yeovil who struck the first blow with practically their first attack.

A superb cross from Nick Crittenden was met by Michael McIndoe who heded home well past Tony Roberts (right) to send the home support into raptures.

Still having the upper hand in terms of possession, the Daggers always looked dangerous going forward and were back on level terms within five minutes. A shot from the right by Paul Terry found its way through to Steve West who fired the ball home from close range.

The travelling support were still celebrating when Yeovil scored again. Less than a minute after West's goal, a clearance from Paul Terry (left) fell to Adam Stansfield who positioned his shot out of Roberts' reach.

With the Daggers still having the better of the play, they were unlucky not to get back on level terms when Steve Heffer latched onto a Paul Terry corner, only to see his shot fly wide.

Within three minutes of the restart, the Daggers did get back on level terms when a free-kick from Matt Jones was headed by Lee Goodwin and the ball looped over Weale in the Yeovil goal and into the back of the net.

Again, Yeovil got the ball in the net. Olivier Brassart volleyed the ball home from outside the area but with Roberts unsighted by a player in an offside position, the goal was disallowed, much to the dismay of the partisan home support.

With Yeovil chasing the game more, there was more space for the visitors and Danny Hill was particularly threatening. Ken Charlery flicked the ball on well for Jason Broom (right) who turned and shot what looked to be a great goal, only to see the ball clib the bar. Fortunately the ball bounced back out to Mark Stein (below left) who had the time to chest the ball down and smash it home to put the Daggers in front for the first time in the
match.

The home side piled on the the pressure for the remainder of the match and finally equalised with five munutes of normal time remaining. A cross from the left was met by Chris Giles who headed home to level the scores at three apiece.

The visitors continued to chase the win and had a great chance to take all three points in the dying moments when Junior McDougald found himself in space on the edge of the area only to mishit is shot and give Weale an easy save.


Much has been said of the quality of refereeing in the Conference this season and Saturday's referee, Mr Mason, was yet another example of how not to referee a match. From the first booking, when he booked a Yeovil player for knocking the ball away when a warning would have been more than sufficient, he consistently booked players for nothing challenges and awarded fouls where common sense would have allowed the game to flow. It seems that the Conference is inundated with referees who either seem to think that they should be the centre of attention or do not punish players for bad fouls. It is surely about time that the Conference powers that be took steps to rectify these issues.

However, Saturday was a much improved performance from the Daggers and there was evidence of the team spirit that seems to have been missing of late.

With Boston United not playing until Monday, the point is enough to put the Daggers back to the top of the table for the first time since Boxing Day, albeit having played a game more than their Lincolnshire rivals.
