Daggers win the game in hand - just
The Daggers managed to bring back the three points from their encounter with Northwich Victoria at Drill Field after an eventful last few minutes when they could easily have got nothing from the game. The win is the first ever for the Daggers at Northwich.

Northwich struck first in the game when, in the 13th minute, Mark Barnard played Gregg Blundell in and he beat the Daggers defence for pace to cross for John Grant who had the easiest task to score. The Daggers were back level within three minutes though, Danny Shipp playing the ball out of defence to Mark Stein who held off the burly challenge of Talbot and played a short pass to Danny Hill (left), who slid the ball home from 18 yards.

Stein missed a sitter shortly afterwards wide with a header from a Shipp centre, and then Shipp himself had a shot just wide. Danny Hill's free-kick was also well saved by Gibson in the Vic's goal. The home team had their chances too though Gregg Blundell guilty of a bad miss when a save by Paul Gothard could only parry a Grant shot into his path three yards from goal and then Chris Royle had a shot that hit the bottom of an upright.

The Daggers dominated play in the second half without really convincing, Mark Stein bringing an excellent one-handed save from Gibson and then being guilty of bad miss after Ken Charlery had done the hard work, but the game then drew to a dramatic conclusion when it looked like petering out to a draw.

In the 88th minute, substitute Jake Sedgemore played the ball into the path of striker Gregg Blundell, who was upended by Tim Cole on the edge of the area. With the Daggers protesting it was outside the area, the referee pointed to the spot and sent Cole off. Denny Ingram then stepped up to take the penalty which seemed certain to end the Daggers promotion dream but despite striking it firmly into the bottom corner it was somehow saved by goalkeeper Paul Gothard.

With full time looming the Daggers found time to grab the winner when a massive Gothard clearance dropped between Ingram and Talbot and Mark Stein beat Paul Gibson from 10 yards.

So the Daggers are back to just 2 points behind Boston United, who had no game over the weekend, with six matches left and it is game on again for the Championship.
