Hotshot Janners

Woking Report
by Hardy on 08/10/2002

The Daggers are held to a disappointing one all draw at Victoria Road by Conference strugglers Woking. Hardy reports on the night's events.

Dagenham & Redbridge


Janney 26

Moore 2

Abbey sent off 61

Nationwide Conference
Victoria Road
Tuesday 8th October 2002
Two classic goals in a less than classic game
The Daggers will view this result as two points lost rather than a point gained after they dominated large periods of the game against a poor Woking side as lacking in confidence as the Daggers themselves.

Dagenham & Redbridge started with the same side and formation that played at Hereford with the exception of Mark Janney who replaced Mark Rooney in the right wing back position. If Janners was playing for his place he certainly will have impressed Garry Hill with one of his more inspired performances on the night.

It was Woking that started the fastest and after just 90 odd seconds they took the lead, almost before the Daggers had had a meaningful touch of the ball. A hopeful cross from the right was headed clear by Lee Matthews but dropped to Barry Moore about 25 yards out. With no-one looking to close Moore down he returned the ball with interest finding Robbo's top left corner with a spectacular volley.

While the goal was a classic, it was actually Woking's first and last shot on target of the night and the Daggers roared back to take the initiative with Mark Janney the outlet down the right wing. First his cross was headed just wide by Lee Matthews, then another was volleyed just over by Mark Stein on the far post.

With the rest of the team seemingly squandering Janners good work it came as no real surprise that it was the man himself who grabbed the equaliser in the 26th minute. Mark Stein played the ball in and Janners applied an unstoppable finish whipping the ball across Jalal's goal just inside the far post.

The crowd relaxed and waited for the floodgates to open as the Daggers stormed forward but as so often this season the quality of the final ball was missing and the effort was wasted more often than not. Danny Hill (left) was particularly guilty of misplacing passes when in good positions.

When they did get a clear chance Jalal was equal to it, like in the 37th minute when Danny Hill found space for a shot from distance and as the crowd were shouting for the goal the Woking keeper just tipped it round the post.

At half time Danny Shipp replaced Paul Terry (right), presumably due to a knock on Terry, who had been performing well up to that point.

The second half continued much as the first with the Daggers pressing forward looking to grab a much needed win but being thwarted by either their own lack of imagination or a resolute Woking defence. The ineffective John Keeling was soon replaced by Paul Bruce on the left which provided more of an outlet down that side but still the crosses were not falling to strikers.

In the 61st minute Woking striker Ben Abbey, who had been booked for kicking the ball away in the first half got in to the Daggers area but fell dramatically when challenged and was shown a second yellow for the dive. This incident actually made things harder for the Daggers as Woking fell back even further in a determination to keep what they had.

Time and again the ball was fired in to the Woking penalty area but refused to drop to Mark Stein, Steve West or late on Junior McDougald on for Danny Hill. In the last few minutes of the game, with all the Daggers substitutions used Paul Bruce (left) was carried off on a stretcher and straight down the tunnel with what looked like a serious knock.

The Daggers continued to press but it wasn't to be and the game petered out at 1-1. The result lifts the Daggers one place to 13th.

In other games last night, Chester City surprisingly lost at home to Nuneaton Borough on live Sky Sports to end their unbeaten record while Yeovil were pegged back by an injury time equaliser by Burton Albion to leave the top of the table still tight when it looked like the Glovers could open up a gap.

The draw means that Woking remain in the relegation zone while Kettering and Leigh RMI both lost again to deepen their problems.
