Daggers shine at last
Daggers manager Garry Hill told the press after the draw with Morecambe that he had seen the first shoots of recovery from his side and after this good away win the fans will have noted it too.

The Daggers, who lost Mark Janney to illness, replaced at right wing-back by Mark Rooney (left), were the better side from the start of this game. They took an early lead when Junior McDougald raced into the box and was obviously tugged back by Jake Sedgemore. Sedgemore was only booked despite their being a case for the red card, but Junior punished the offence by slamming home the penalty low in the corner.

The Daggers continued to take the game to Northwich with Gary Fletcher, looking like he was relishing playing against his old club, looking threatening time and time again. Fletcher's best chance came when he brushed off three challenges to fire fiercely at goal only for Matthew Parry to pull off an excellent one-handed save. Danny Shipp also had a couple of decent chanced as did Paul Terry.

The feeling that they needed more to be sure of the points was illustrated by a couple of decent chances for the Vics. Early on when a Mark Devlin cross found Richard Norris but his header was weak and towards the end of the half a Devlin shot was also blocked by Lee Matthews.

After the break it was obvious that Jimmy Quinn had "had a word" with his team and they pressed the Daggers back in the early exchanges. The Daggers defended well though with Lee Matthews looking back to his outstanding best alongside Mark Smith and Steve Potts in the back three.

The Vic's ran out of luck in the 70th minute when Greg Rioch was sent off after a touchline clash with Gary Fletcher. Rioch raised his hand to Fletcher and was adjudged to have struck out although the card seemed a little harsh.

Before the Vic's could reorganise properly after the sending off the points were safe when Danny Shipp (right) found Junior and his shot found the corner of the net to make it 2-0. Shipp himself could have made it worse for the home side right at the end of the game but his shot was cleared off the line by Chris Royle.

The result keeps the Daggers in 14th as all the other mid-table sides gained points, but will be very encouraging to Garry Hill and his team. In other results the big game of the day ended with a creditable draw for Doncaster Rovers at Yeovil to take them up to second at the expense of Chester City who surprisingly lost at Woking, the magic of new management working once more.

At the bottom Kettering and Telford lost while Woking and Leigh both won to leave the midland's sides firmly in the mire.
