Daggers Stung By Bees
The Daggers were tonight soundly beaten by a solid Barnet side in a one-sided match at Underhill.

Starting the game with Ken Charlery (left) and Mark Stein up front, the visitors took an early stranglehold on the match and dominated the opening quarter of an hour.

As early as the first minute of the match, Paul Terry brought out a fine save from Lee Harrison to win the first of a succession of corners.

The Daggers created numerous chances in the opening period but were unable to capitalise. Shots from Mark Stein and Paul Terry both went close and it seemed only a matter of time before they took the lead.

It came as quite a surprise when, after 29 minutes, a cross from Austin Berkley on a rare Barnet attack found the Frazer Toms who calmly slotted the ball past Tony Roberts to give the home side an undeserved lead.

Whereas in previous matches, the Daggers have been able to raise their game to come back at their opponents, there seemed to be little imagination in the Daggers play and they reverted to an ineffective long ball style.

As half time approached, Tony Roberts did well to push wide a long range shot from Doolan.

In the second half, Barnet continued to dominate the match and were unable to create anything of note.

The Bees second of the night came after 53 minutes when a corner was headed back to Gower who powered home from 20 yards.

Any thoughts of a Daggers comeback were dashed in the 67th minute when Barnet scored their third. A ball through the middle had seemingly set Wayne Purser free but Tony Roberts rushed out of his area and handled the ball. The loose ball broke for Midgley who slotted the ball into the unguarded net.

To the obvious disgust of the home support, the referee quite rightly only booked Roberts as he had not denied a clear goalscoring opportunity.

With the Daggers now thoroughly out of the running, it came as no surprise when Barnet added their fourth of the night twelve minutes from time. A poor penalty by Mark Arber was saved by Roberts but he could only parry it to Gower who smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

All round it was a poor performance from the Daggers and, at such a crucial stage of the season, one that could prove costly. All eyes will be on Boston's match with Nuneaton tomorrow and hoping that Borough can pull off a surprise win.
