Daggers singing in the rain

The Daggers look to be building a head of steam coming into their toughest test of the season so far, the trip to Huish Park, Yeovil next Saturday. On a wet pitch that stood up brilliantly to the game despite constant rain throughout they passed Forest Green Rovers into submission.

With Mark Stein and Gary Fletcher still injured Junior McDougald and Steve West started up front with Danny Shipp joining them from midfield at every opportunity. Junior had one of his better games, looking dangerous running at the defence and was unlucky not get a goal. He was awarded the Carpet Sense Man of the Match by the visiting John Motson (rght), spying on Forest Green for their upcoming live FA Cup tie, and DiggerDagger agrees 100% with the great man's verdict.

The Daggers took the lead as early as the 6th minute. A passing move eventually led to Junior finding space wide on the right and his cross picked out Steve West unmarked in front of goal. The header was was past Perrin in the Rovers goal like a rocket.

The Daggers completely dominated the next period of play. First Mark Janney had a shot saved by Perrin in the 20th minute then Junior had one of several penalty shouts on the day turned down just after this when Kevin Langan tripped him as he chased a through ball.

It came of something of a surprise when Forest Green managed to equalise in the 309th minute. Alex Meechan found some space on the edge of the area and struck a perfectly placed shot from the edge of the box into the top corner past Tony Roberts.

Any negative thoughts that the Daggers fans had at this setback were immediately removed though when Danny Shipp (left) put the home side back in front. Paul Bruce's deflected cross bounced in the box and Paul Terry knocked the ball to Shippy in all sorts of space who calmly placed the ball under Perrin.

Colin Addison shook up the visitors by bringing on Neil Grayson at half time, and this definitely gave them more threat in the early exchanges. It was Grayson who had their best efforts but Tony Roberts was equal to them.

The Daggers slowly regained control of the game and could have put the game beyond doubt long before they finally did. Ashley Vickers and Steve West both having efforts cleared of the line. In the 71st minute though Steve West made way for Paul Mayo (right) and he scored with his first touch when Mark Janney burst up the right and provided the perfect low cross for Mayo to convert.

Junior had the last memorable moment of the game when he teased the defence with a run from deep, opening them up but unfortunately the eventual shot was just wide, denying him the goal he deserved on the day.

In other Conference games, the big match at the Deva ended 2-2 with both Chester goals from new signing Daryl Clare, the second a very late equaliser. This benefitted Doncaster who beat Hereford to drop the Bulls out of the playoff spots and cement Rovers in second.

At the bottom Telford beat Woking 1-0 to leave the Cards in even deeper mire while Kettering and Leigh drew. Stevenage drop into the bottom three for the first time this season after losing at Southport, ending the game with 9 men.
