Daggers hit for five again
Chester City beat the Daggers 5-2 in an eventful game at the Deva Stadium on Saturday, a result that sees City go top of the Conference. Unlike the game against Doncaster though, the Daggers made a decent fist of this one, keeping it close up to the last 10 minutes and taking an early lead.

The Daggers scored after just 31 seconds when Paul Terry (left) converted a Mark Janney cross but could only hang on to the lead until the 7th minute when Ryan Sugden equalised.

Sugden was brought down by Tony Roberts to conceed a penalty in the 20th minute and Kelly scored, Roberts only booked for the foul when many observers felt he should have walked.

Paul Bruce (right) opened his Daggers account with a superb strike from a free kick in the 35th minute, finding the top left corner from 20 yards to make it 2-2 at half time.

The wheels came off for the Daggers early in the second half though when Ashley Vickers (left) was red carded in the 53rd minute after he brought down Chris Blackburn and was ruled to be the last defender.

Chester proceeded to dominate the rest of the game, taking the lead in the 61st minute through Phil Bolland.

The game was evened up in the 66th minute. Chester keeper Wayne Brown became the second man to see red when adjudged to have handled outside his area in the 66th minute. With no replacement keeper on the bench Chester were forced to use Chris Blackburn as a makeshift replacement.

The Daggers couldn't take advantage of this though, having just one serious shot in the remainder of the match despite chasing the game with a couple of attacking substitutions. In fact taking off Steve Heffer and Paul Terry in the 75th minute seemed to unbalance the midfield and actually had a detrimental effect.

It was due to the gaps left by pushing forward that Chester closed the game out with two more goals from Scott Guyett in the 81st minute and a second for Sugden in injury time to seal a comfortable win in the end and leave the Daggers at the wrong end of five goals for a second successive away game.
