Stein runs riot at Rockingham Road
A Mark Stein hattrick helped the Daggers to come back from 1-0 behind to beat Kettering Town 3-1 at Rockingham Road today in a match that was very nearly ruined by a staggeringly inept display of refereeing.

The Daggers started with an attacking formation including Steve Watts, Mark Stein and Junior McDougald up front.

However, it was the home side that gained the upper hand, taking the lead in the 7th minute when Shaun Murray's free-kick was met by Brett Solkhon who beat the outrushing Tony Roberts to the ball and heading into the unguarded net.

The Daggers were finding it incredibly hard to make headway in attack thanks to a flag-happy linesman, but in the 14th minute, Junior McDougald (right) lashed the ball across from the left to Stein at the far post who expertly guided the ball into the corner of the net to level the scores.

Stein came close to putting the Daggers in front soon afterwards, but his header was directed straight at the Kettering goalkeeper.

The hosts were belying their rock-bottom league position though and had the better chances in the opening period and, in the second half, Niall Inman should have restored their lead but miskicked his shot into Tony Robert's arms.

Roberts (left) was again in action a few minutes later, pulling off a fine save from Shutt.

In the 72nd minute, though, Kettering finally capitulated to the Daggers' attack.

A wonderful pass from Steve Watts was met by Tarkan Mustafa (right) who jinked into the box and played an inch-perfect cross to Mark Stein who calmly slotted the ball into the corner of the net.

Then came the most contentious incident of the match. Lee Matthews (left) played in a fine header which Steffan Dancy attempted to head off the line, but only succeeded in putting the ball out of the reach of Bowling. Bowling did make contact with the ball, but was only able to push it into the side-netting and clearly over the line. To the utter amazement of the visiting support, the useless idiot masquerading as a referee (right) and his equally hopeless assistant allowed play to continue. It seems that they were the only two people in the ground who didn't think the ball had gone in.

Stein almost completed his hattrick shortly afterwards when his overhead kick was well saved by Bowling.

He did get his third in the 80th minute when some lovely interplay between Mark Janney and Paul Terry culminated in Terry slotting the ball back to Stein who took the simplest of tap-ins.

The result is the 8th consecutive Conference win for the Daggers.
