Southport Report
by Nelson on 02/02/2003

Report from Victoria Road where the Daggers dominated but couldn't make their territorial advantage tell against Southport in the FA Trophy Fouth Round clash.

Dagenham & Redbridge


FA Trophy 4th Round
Victoria Road
Saturday 1 February 2003
Southport Stalemate
The Daggers yesterday failed to make their territorial advantage play in a dour FA Trophy tie with Southport at Victoria Road.

With the Daggers having far more possession and the better chances, the scoreless result came as something of a surprise.

The Daggers started brightly with Mark Stein (left) going close on 8 minutes from a McDougald cross.

Shortly after, Lee Matthews (right) went agonisingly close with a diving header, but it was somehow cleared from off the line.

John McGrath then burst through one-on-one but was only able to place his shot at the Southport 'keeper.

Southport then had a good chance in the 13th minute when Paul Wheatcroft's shot forced Paul Gothard into a fantastic save to tip the ball over the bar.

Later in the half, Gothard (left) again was called into action, saving an Ian Nolan shot with his feet.

After the break, the Daggers' dominance was even more complete with the visitors unable to muster a single shot on goal.

The Daggers best chance came when John McGrath crossed the ball beautifully on the volley to Lee Matthews, but the defender's header clattered against the post. The rebound was travelling too hard for Stein to control and bounced into the grateful arms of Dickinson in the Southport goal.

McGrath (right) again went close, as did Stein, but it was clearly not his day as time and time again, he was unable to capitalise on golden opportunities.

The Daggers brought Danny Hill (left) into the action and he did seem to add some urgency into the home side's game, but save for a good ball through to Stein, he was unable to create any real openings.

The match will now be replayed on Tuesday evening at Haig Avenue, but the Daggers will need to be sharper with their finishing if they want to progress to the next round.
