The Daggers could only take a point from this game at Scarborough and as a result lost ground on Boston United who had an impressive 4-0 home win at home to Farnborough Town. As a result the Daggers now know nothing but two wins in the last week of the season will do them, and even then have to rely on the Pilgrims losing at either Morecambe or all but relegated Hayes.

Once again the Daggers were struggling to find a front 2 for this game with Mark Stein serving the final game of his suspension. Junior McDougald (left), who had been a doubt all week with a back problem, partnered Danny Hill up front at the start of the game, with Danny Shipp sharing the front running with Hill. The Daggers played 3-5-2 with Dean Hooper, back from suspension, and Matt Jones as wing backs. Steve West also returned from suspension to bolster the back 3 with Tim Cole out suspended for his red card at Northwich.

Once again the visitors failed to click in the first half which was very poor but edged by Scarborough although the Daggers did have the best chance when Danny Shipp fed Paul Terry but Woods saved. For the Seadogs Darryn Stamp had a great game, having a shot blocked by Mark Smith and shortly after crossed for Sugden whose half hit shot was easy for Roberts. Just before half time Stamp's header looked in but Tony Roberts managed to fingertip it over to leave it 0-0 at half time.

In the second half the Daggers showed a lot more urgency dominating the game and having most of the chances, although Pounder went close with a shot from distance. The key incident came when Danny Hill (right) skipped past Mark Patterson in the box and looked to be tripped. The referee looked at his linesman, who had a clear view of the action, and with nothing signalled waved play on. The Daggers fought on with Steve West looking dangerous on set pieces, the Daggers hammered on the Scarborough defence looking for the vital break, West hitting the bar.

Garry Hill shuffled his pack shortly after this replacing Junior McDougald and Danny Hill with Mark Janney and Steve McGavin. Lee Goodwin had a couple of headers from corners which missed the target and Matt Jones had an effort saved. Right at the death, well into injury time, Steve McGavin's shot was punched clear by Andy Woods and Mark Janney's follow up shot was saved.

The result leaves the Daggers 2 points adrift with 2 games left. Realistically a win and a draw for Boston will see them home now. The Daggers have to win their games at Woking and home to Chester City and hope that Boston slip up one more time.
