The Daggers are BACK!
Dagenham & Redbridge brought home a hard earned point from Huish Park after coming back from 2-0 down to grab a draw against the league leaders Yeovil Town.

The Daggers restored loan signing Gary Fletcher to the team, playing alongside Junior McDougald with Steve West dropping to the bench. Mark Stein (left) also returned to league action after being injured in the Aldershot game also on the bench, coming on for the last 15 minutes..

The early stages of the game were cautious as both teams felt each other out but with Yeovil looking the more fluent and they scored from their first real effort on goal. Lee Matthews was adjudged to have fouled Nick Crittenden about 25 yards out and Michael McIndoe stepped up to curl the ball over the wall and in.

The Daggers began to play a bit after that blow with Steve Heffer (right), Gary Fletcher and Paul Terry all having chances while at the other end Tony Roberts made a great save to deny McIndoe a second.

The second half saw the Daggers on top for most of it and Danny Shipp was very unlucky to see his deflected shot slip just wide with Chris Weale stranded early on before Yeovil grabbed an unlikely looking second goal. Crittenden and Grant made space up the right and Crittenden hit what could have been a cross or a shot in which hit Mark Smith and Tony Roberts before bobbling over the line.

The Daggers were stung into action from that and pulled one back just three minutes later. Paul Bruce sluing over a cross for Gary Fletcher who got ahead of Colin Pluck only to shoved over. The Referee pointed to the spot and Junior McDougald stepped up to smash the penalty past Weale off the underside of the bar.

The Daggers then dominated proceedings with some great midfield passing movements and Yeovil defending equally well. Paul Terry (left) had another shot fly just wide as the Daggers looked like they just couldn't work the opening to get the equaliser they deserved.

With 10 minutes left though Gary Fletcher finally got the goal his play had deserved and what a goal it was. He picked the ball up in the middle of the Yeovil half and ran at the defence, jinking past three or four defenders before sliding the ball past Chris Weale.

With the Daggers in the ascendancy it was a little galling for the Daggers fans to watch as the team shut up shop rather than going for the win in the last 10 minutes, but I am certain that any of those watching would have settled for the draw before the start of the game.

The result sees the Daggers stay in 10th and Yeovil still top, but is a morale blow at a key time in the season. In other games, Chester beat Stevenage to cement second spot and send Boro deeper in the mire in 21st place. Morecambe hammered Doncaster 3-0 to place a question mark over Donny's title prospects and cement the Shrimps into a play-off spot and Southport had a fine win at Hereford.
