Daggers Devastated
The Daggers were thrashed today live on Sky TV in what is a warning to the rest of the Conference that Doncaster Rovers are sure to be there or thereabouts at the end of this season.

Doncaster started quickly and impressed with their attacking play at pace. Almost immediately it was clear that Ashley Vickers and Lee Goodwin would be having a long day as Andy Watson and Jamie Paterson took them on at every opportunity.

After a number of half chances at both ends, including a shot from Steve McGavin that crept just wide of the right hand post from Danny Shipp's knock down Doncaster took the lead somewhat fortunately when a corner was half cleared and the return ball into the box flicked off Steve Perkins' heel to Andy Watson, who finished superbly.

Steve West (left) had a header just wide a minute later but it was Doncaster that continued to take the game to the Daggers. Robert Gill Should have doubled the lead from Marples cross but his downward header bounced up onto the bar and away. Under a minute later though Andy Watson skinned Lee Goodwin and picked out Gill who slipped the ball into the bottom corner.

Doncaster kept pushing forward and Tony Roberts was kept busy, but it was Andy Warrington that made the best save of the game in the 40th minute. Danny Hayzelden's free kick from the left was met by Steve West's head and Warrington's parry at full stretch fell to Mark Stein who couldn't quite turn the ball in.

The game was over as a contest a couple of minutes later when Watson again beat Lee Goodwin and Paterson's shot which looked to be going just wide was turned in by Ashley Vickers to make it 3-0 at half time.

The Daggers, playing for pride in the second half made more of a fist of the match for a while but it was still Doncaster looking the more dangerous. Ashley Vickers (right) completed his nightmare day in the 65th minute when he seemed caught on two minds on a cross from the from Owen which looked bound for Jamie Paterson and handled. Paterson scored easily from the resulting penalty.

Danny Shipp (left) grabbed a consolation in the 68th minute as Steve McGavin's free kick was headed back across the six yard box by Lee Goodwin and the skipper found the corner of the net off the keepersw legs. Any idea that the Daggers could make any further impact was quickly squashed as Paul Barnes found space to restore Doncaster's four goal advantage just four minutes later with a shot from the edge of the area.

There was no way back from there and the game ended much as it had been throughout with Doncaster on top.

After the game, Garry Hill was very contrite and felt that the team had let the club down. The Daggers have now lost three on the bounce for the first time since their return to the Conference and are now nine points behind Doncaster after just seven played.
