Daggers Lose Despite Improvement
The Daggers tonight were beaten by Nuneaton Borough despite dominating a game in which they showed distinct improvement over the performances against Telford and Farnborough.

The match started with the Daggers taking control of the game and putting almost constant pressure on the Nuneaton area without managing many shots on goal.

The Daggers nearly opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute when a clearance from Chris MacKenzie hit the onrushing Danny Shipp (left) and whistled just past the left post.

A viscious foul on Steve West (right) in the 27th minute by Terry Angus saw the Nuneaton player booked and West replaced by Lee Goodwin.

Another chance fell to Steve Perkins who was unmarked at the far post with a great chance to head the home side into the league, but the chance was wasted by a tame header into the path of a Boro defender.

MacKenzie was having an easy time of it in the first half with the Daggers unable to create any real openings despite dominating the possession.

A great chance for the Daggers was denied with around a minute left before the interval when Stein (left) burst through to latch onto a through ball only to be pulled back by Thackery just outside the box. The Nuneaton player was deservedly booked but the Daggers were unable to make anything from the resulting free-kick.

With time rapidly running out in the first half, the visitors took the lead. A rare breakaway for Nuneaton saw the ball fall to Gary Jones who slotted the ball low past Roberts.

Within seconds, however, the Daggers did come very close to equalising when a loose ball was cleared off the line by the head of Clarkson to ensure that the visitors went in for half-time somehow in front.

The second half saw even more of the possession from the Daggers as they practically camped out in the Nuneaton area.'s man of the match, Danny Hayzelden (right) supplied a fantastic cross which Mark Stein lashed goalwards only to be thwarted by the feet of MacKenzie.

Another good chance came to Steve Perkins but he was again unable to get enough on his header to level the score.

MacKenzie was again Boro's saviour when he pushed away a header by Ashley Vickers.

In the 64th minute, Squires handed the Daggers a lifeline when he needlessly handled in the area but Steve McGavin's penalty was superbly saved at full stretch by the impressive 'keeper (left).

With only twenty minutes left on the clock, the Daggers got the equaliser that they so richly deserved. Danny Shipp turned in the area and shot the ball goalwards, only to see it ricochet off Terry Angus into the path of Mark Stein who stabbed the ball powerfully into the roof of the net for his fourth goal of the season.

This looked like it might spur the home side on to a deserved victory but it wasn't to be. With 90 minutes showing on the Victoria Road clock, the Daggers suffered the killer blow.

With two players seeming to be clearly offside, Harris was able to latch onto a pass from Quayle and took the ball round the outside of the onrushing Roberts before slotting the ball into the corner of the unguarded net.
