McDougald Penalty Enough

The Daggers yesterday gained three points at Victoria Road, defeating Farnborough Town 1-0 thanks to an 86th minute Junior McDougald (left) penalty.

Farnborough fielded three former Daggers, Garry Butterworth, Ken Charlery and Geoff Pitcher amongst a much changed side with the Daggers parading new signing, Tarkan Mustafa as well as Tony Roberts who had returned after a period out through injury.

The first half saw the visitors having marginally the better of the play with Rocky Baptiste being a real handful.

Baptiste signalled his intentions as early as the 2nd minute with an attempted chip, but he was unable to find the target.

Both Baptiste and former Dagger, Ken Charlery, had chances to put the visitors in front, but Roberts was equal to all their shots.

With the Daggers seeming a little off-colour in the first half, Farnborough keeper, Tony Pennock had little to do save for a good save from a John McGrath (right) cross/shot and to watch a Mark Stein shot fly over the bar.

The Daggers came out for the second half looking a much better side and managed to wrest control of the game more.

Lee Matthews (left) went agonisingly close when he headed a good McGrath cross over the bar.

Then came the moment of contention in the match - Junior McDougald burst through into the area and was scythed down by Stuart Reeks. Unbelievably, the referee waved play-on leaving both McDougald and the home support furious.

Baptiste put a header wide from a superb cross by Geoff Pitcher but other than that, the visitors found little change from the Daggers defence in the second half.

With the match seemingly heading for a scoreless draw, the Daggers got the break they needed four minutes from time when Joff Vansittart fouled Lee Matthews in the box and the referee, this time, made the correct decision and awarded the penalty.

McDougald stepped up and slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the goal, handing the Daggers a precious three points.

With five of the seven clubs above the Daggers losing, the Daggers now find themselves close the the play-off zone, knowing that they will be in one of the play-off spots if they can win their games in hand.

However, they have to consider themselves somewhat fortunate to have picked up the win in this match and manager, Garry Hill (right), will really need to lift his team for the tricky trip to Telford on Tuesday.
