Daggers Make Hard Work Of Dover
The Daggers today made hard work of beating a poor Dover Athletic side at Victoria Road, eventually running out 1-0 winners.

The Daggers, fielding a much-changed side, included Junior McDougald (left) alongside Ken Charlery up-front. The home side started the match in the expected attacking style and created numerous chances in the opening period, most notably a shot from Dean Hooper which cannoned off the crossbar as early as the 13th minute. However, the home side appeared to make heavy weather of the Dover defence and a number of clear goalscoring opportunities were squandered.

In the 43rd minute, Steve McGavin was put clear through on goal and made no mistake, slotting the ball past the onrushing Paul Hyde in the Dover goal. (right)

The second half was a very dull affair with few clear chances for either side. The best chance of the half fell to Dover's Leon Kelly whose shot was saved well by Tony Roberts to push the ball onto the bar in the 73rd minute.

Two minutes later, Tony Roberts (left) was involved in controversy when he appeared to bring down Scott Ramsey. Despite appeals from the Daggers' players, the referee awarded a penalty to the visitors. Ramsey himself took the spot-kick but is was superbly saved by Tony Roberts to keep the Daggers in front.

Only four minutes later, Matt Carruthers cynically kicked-out at Mark Smith and, following a mass brawl in front of the sieve, was shown the red card.

The Daggers replaced Dean Hooper and Junior McDougald with Mark Rooney and Danny Shipp in the last minute but the Daggers held on to take all three points. Dover now look unlikely to escape relegation unless manager, Neville Southall can produce a startling change in fortunes.

The Daggers now lie four points in front Boston United who had a free Saturday today.
