Daggers Fall To Farnborough

The Daggers suffered the first defeat of their 2002/03 Nationwide Conference campaign, losing 1-0 at Farnborough.

In what was a very poor match, the Daggers failed to live up to their ability and were thwarted by the spoiling tactics of Graham Westley's side.

The hosts started the match with three former Daggers amongst their starting eleven. Last season's strike partner for Mark Stein, Ken Charlery (left with Steve West) was playing as centre forward with Garry Butterworth in midfield and Jim Rodwell at the back.

With goal chances at a premium, it was a very even match for the opening period and neither side created much in front of goal.

Mark Stein was struggling to get much of the ball and former Dagger, Jim Rodwell (right) was doing an admirable job in defence, something he failed to do in his time at Victoria Road. The close marking of Stein was giving the visitors little option in attack and Junior McDougald (below left) was being used as the main target for the midfield. Unfortunately, Junior was unable to capitalise on the service he was being given and time after time, openings were wasted.

The best chance of the half fell to Steve West but his powerful header flew just over the bar.

In the second half, the Daggers continiued to have the better of the play but it was the home side who took the lead. Using their counter attacking style, Taggart broke through the Daggers defence and unleashed a powerful shot which Gothard was only able to push further into the corner of the net.

The Daggers did have a clear penalty denied when a Farnborough player clearly fouled in the area. However, the referee waved away the Daggers' appeals. A few minutes later, another penalty shout for handball was waved away, however, there was a clear push from the visiting player.

The Daggers had a few chances, however, and long range shots from Paul Terry, Steve West and Paul Bruce all went close.

In the dying minutes of the match, the best chance of an equaliser fell to Mark Stein who broke through one-on-one with the 'keeper and should really have done better with his shot which Pennock was able to tip around the post.
