Another come from behind point
It is hard to know whether to be pleased with a point from this game or not as the Daggers had a very topsy-turvy afternoon at the Shay against the form team of the Conference, Halifax Town.

With Mark Stein (left) once again not appearing despite rumours of a return the Daggers stuck to the successful combination of Steve West and Junior McDougald up front. In midfield though they gave debut's to loan signings John McGrath as left wing back and Geoff Pitcher in the centre.

The Daggers started well looking the better side early on before the defence fell apart in spectacular style and shipped three in 10 minutes, all from set pieces. Guess what training will be about on Tuesday lads!!

On 24 minutes Charlie Hartfield swung over a corner and Lewis Killeen, in on loan from Sheffield United headed it home. Just three minutes later it was two, Hartfiield's free kick this time headed home by Ian Fiztpatrick. Seven more minutes and it was three when Hartfield himself finished off another corner, this time swung in by Neil Midgley and the game looked all over.

The Daggers got a lifeline that must have changed the planned half time team talk in the 44th minute when that man Hartfield was again involved. This time though his attempted clearance was banged straight at Steve West and the ball looped up over Tom Morgan and in. 3-1 at half time was very different to 3-0.

Despite the Daggers breakthrough it looked like Halifax had control again in the early stags of the second half until Morgan in the Shaymen's goal had his blooper. Mark Janney (right) swung in a cross and the keeper dropped it straight to Junior McDougald who slammed it in from 6 yards.

The Daggers scented that they could get something from the game and did so with nine minutes left when Junior again ran free, albeit with a hint of offside to his starting position, and comfortably rounded the keeper before scoring.

If a team was going to win it from there it was the Daggers and they were very close in injury time when Steve West was just beaten to a McDougald cross by Adam Quinn with the goal begging.

So a mixed afternoon for the Daggers, but the unbeaten run is stretched to 7 in the Conference. Other results mean the club drop to 11th in the table though, but they are just 4 points out of a playoff spot and well placed in the pack.

In other Conference games Southport and Chester had a dust up at Haig Avenue, both ending with 10 men. Steve Soley went for Southport before recent hero and converted cheat Daryl Clare was sent off in an incident with a man called Barry Jones (right). Hmmmm, sounds familiar!! Chester won 3-1 in the end though to hang on to leaders Yeovil who beat Margate at Huish Park.

At the bottom Kettering closed the gap with a 3-0 win over Nuneaton at Rocky Road, while Stevenage drew and FGR and Woking lost.

In Division 3 Leyton Orient beat the cheats 1-0 at York Street and Swansea's win puts them back in their rightful spot at the foot of the table.
