Saturday 5th October 2002
One-nil up, two-one down again
The Daggers shuffled the pack again on Saturday at Hereford, bringing In John Keeling for his debut at the expense of Paul Bruce, and playing Steve West up front alongside Mark Stein. With Ashley Vickers suspended Mark Smith made a welcome return in a back three with Keeling and Rooney playing wing-backs.

The first half was comfortable for the Daggers with Hereford restricted to shots from distance mostly although Paul Parry did have a half chance from a narrow angle that was saved by Tony Roberts.

Paul Terry and John Keeling had chances to score for the Daggers before they did take the lead in the 41st minute. West and Mark Stein combined in text book fashion when West won a header and when Stein chested the flick back into his path 25 yards out, West slammed the shot past Baker in the Hereford goal.

The Daggers will have enjoyed the half time tea more than the home side, but it wasn't to last as Hereford scored twice in the space of two minutes, both goals courtesy of defensive errors. The first was a team effort with Lee Matthews and Mark Rooney (right) both having chances to clear the ball before Michael Rose found Steve Guinan on the far post for a tap in.

The second was down to Steve Potts (left) who instead of clearing hesitated letting Paul Parry in who slipped the ball across to Danny Williams for a tap in.

Having let the lead slip it never looked likely that the Daggers would find a way back although Danny Hill did have a goalbound shot blocked on the six yard line. A flurry of late substitutions failed to change the course of the game and Hereford ran out winners.

The result drops the Daggers into the midst of the bottom half of the table, in 14th place and for the second year running it is a defeat at Edgar Street that puts paid to the Daggers title ambitions. Last time round that defeat was in April though, not October. The Daggers have now lost more games in the first two months of the season than they did in the whole of 2001/02.

With the play-offs in operation this time around though 5th place will be enough to give the Daggers a shot at promotion, and that is not out of sight yet by a long way. They do have to work on concentrating for all 90 minutes though and, worryingly, on their overall fitness.

At the top of the table Yeovil thrashed Southport 6-0 to stamp their intentions on the title race and both Chester and Doncaster also won. At the bottom Kettering lost to Telford to leave them in all sorts of trouble already while Woking managed to bust their seven game losing streak earning a home draw with Burton Albion just in time for their visit to Victoria Road on Tuesday.
