Daggers Sweep Aside Marlow
The Daggers today progressed to the 4th Round of this season's FA Trophy with a comprehensive 5-2 win over Marlow at Victoria Road.

Despite fielding a relatively weakened side for the tie including Paul Gothard (right), with a mind on Tuesday's FA Cup replay against Plymouth, the home side stamped their mark on the game as early as the second minute with a lovely sweeping move which culminated with Gary Fletcher pulling off a fine save from Lee Carroll in the Marlow goal.

The Daggers continued to dominate and took the lead in the 5th minute when a pinpoint pass from Danny Hill fell to Mark Stein (left) who calmly slotted the ball past Carroll and into the corner of the net.

Seven minutes later and the lead was doubled when John McGrath headed the ball on for Fletcher who controlled the ball and, seemingly in slow-motion, he rounded the keeper and shot the ball home.

The game was seemingly over as a contest when, in the 34th minute, Stein latched onto a loose ball in the heart of the Marlow defence and took his time before rifling the ball into the net for his second and the Daggers' third of the match.

At half time, Daggers' manager, Garry Hill, took advantage of the comfortable scoreline and replaced John McGrath and Steve Heffer with Steve Vaughan (right) and Yohance Lewis with the visitors choosing to emerge for the second half unchanged.

The change seemed to unsettle the side and it was the visitors who scored next, opening their account with a headed Nick Ryder goal in the 48th minute.

The Daggers restored their three goal cushion though in the 57th minute when Tim Cole (left) curled in a beautiful goal, into the top corner of the net, way beyond the reach of the 'keeper.

With the Daggers' cruising at 4-1, the visitors again reduced the deficit when Robert Gibson latched on to a Nick Ryder cross.

With 5 minutes remaining, the Daggers completed a good days work when Steve West thundered home a header from a Danny Hill cross.

Elsewhere in the Trophy, many matches fell victim to the weather with only seven ties going ahead. The biggest shocks of the day were at The Lamb where Tamworth put three past Nuneaton Borough without reply and at Belle Vue where Emley beat Burton Albion 1-0.
