Daggers Backlash Batters Barnet
The Daggers tonight showed no after effects of Saturday's last-gasp defeat at Norwich, putting on a great display to beat Barnet 5-1 at Victoria Road.

With the play-offs firmly in manager, Garry Hill's (left) sights, the win was a vital one, not only to climb the table, but also to restore confidence.

It was clear from the start that the Daggers fancied it a lot more than Barnet. At least two of the visitors decided tights were in order, with Conference top scorer Junior Agogo looking frankly ridiculous in tights and silver boots, and several pairs of gloves were also to be seen. The Daggers side lined up all in short sleeve shirts on what, while not exactly pleasant, was hardly a bitter evening.

The Daggers fielded a few changes from Saturday's side with Mark Janney missing out altogether as the team lined up in a fluid 4-4-2/4-3-3 with Junior McDougald (right) playing out on the right. Tim Cole and Lee Matthews lined up in the heart of defence with Mark Smith in the unfamiliar role of right-back.

It was the renowned FA Cup marksman, Junior, who gave the home side the lead in the 8th minute. With Paul Terry and Steve West harrying in the area, McDougald latched onto the loose ball and slotted it into the corner of the net.

The Daggers dominated the rest of the half, pulling Barnet all over the place but regular observers remained nervous without more goals to show for it. These fears were eased though when the lead was deservedly doubled in the 37th minute when Paul Terry cleverly laid off his free kick for Danny Shipp (left) to rifle in from 25 yards out via Naisbitt and the post.

The match was over as a contest five minutes later when a John McGrath free-kick eluded Naisbitt in the Barnet goal and West was there to knock home the simplest of tap-ins.

The teams went in at half time with the Daggers clearly having had the better of the play and the visitors having been unable to create a single shot on goal.

In the second half, the Conference's leading marksman, Junior Agogo, made something of a nuisance of himself, but managed to squander his best chance, placing his shot into the side netting.

The 55th minute saw the Daggers extend their lead further when Stein latched onto a Steve West (right) pass, before rounding the hapless keeper to slot home the home side's fourth of the night.

Following an earlier collision, goalkeeper, Tony Roberts, was obviously struggling and, just before the hour, he was replaced by Paul Gothard, in what looked like a recurrence of the ankle problem that kept him out of the Scarborough game.

Barnet did score a consolation goal when Agogo rounded Gothard, and Barnet may well feel they should have been awarded a penalty when Agogo was brought down by a clumsy challenge from Tim Cole (left).

Cole was named the sponsors man of the match and ended the game with the crowd singing his name as the Matthews/Cole central defensive partnership was at last re-united. Timmy could have had a goal too, his header from a second half corner just saved by Naisbitt, and his was one of several great performances by Daggers on the night.

The match ended, much as it had begun, with the Daggers totally in control and it came as no surprise when Stein made the score 5-1, converting an excellent McGrath cross.
