Daggers win a "Steino" at the Crabble
The Daggers scored an early goal for the second successive game but this time the early strike but Mark Stein, his seventh of the season, was enough to see off a Margate side that had beaten early season pace setters Doncaster on Saturday.

Stein (right) struck with another excellent finish in the third minute, showing his sniffer qualities when a long free kick from midfield was allowed to drop in the Margate area. As defenders hesitated Steino didn't and he rifled in a left-foot shot wide of Margate keeper Charlie Mitten into the far corner.

Margate pushed forward looking for an equaliser but their play was mostly predictable long balls which were dealt with by the Daggers defence, with Lee Matthews re-installed as team skipper ably assisted by Steve Potts, back after missing out through injury at Chester, Ashley Vickers and Mark Rooney.

Margate had chances to equalise but never really looked like doing so. Steve Watts, on loan from Leyton Orient, headed straight at Tony Roberts and shortly after headed the ball down for up Leon Braithwaite who shot over at the far post.

The Daggers controlled things for the most part in the second half, happy to keep possession for long periods in a fashion that will have re-assured the travelling fans in the disappointing crowd of just 626. Margate were unable to apply much imagination to their play and their long ball tactics continued to be dealt with by the Daggers back line.

When they did get a sniff on goal Tony Roberts (left) looked assured and in control. First Braithwaite saw another effort saved by Roberts and then Watts beat Ashley Vickers to get a shot in only to see Roberts push the ball away for a corner.

The win is another twist in the Daggers topsy-turvy season, and is their 3rd away from home in six games, two of the losses being while conceding 5 goals. The result lifts the Daggers back up to 8th spot, just 4 points off a play-off position.

Chester City came from behind at the Deva to beat Burton Albion and Yeovil Town demolished Woking on Sky TV to open a gap at the top of the table. Doncaster were only able to grab a late equaliser at Gravesend, where Tim Cole got good reviews from Fleet fans in his debut on loan.

At the bottom of the table, Forest Green had a surprise 3-0 away win at Farnborough to move out of bottom spot, stranding Kettering in 22nd.
