Daggers crash at Broadhall Way
An excellent away following travelled to Broadhall Way on Saturday, only to see the Daggers beaten by two second half goals in an entertaining game, but a frustrating performance by the visitors.

Mark Stein returned as a starter for the Daggers, partnering Steve West up front with Junior on the bench, sitting next to Daggers legend Jason Broom (left), brought back from his spell with Grays Athletic on transfer deadline day.

The Daggers started better than Boro, zipping the ball around quickly and creating a number of decent openings in the first quarter of an hour, the best wasted by Steve West who shot wide when well placed. After this though Boro took the upper hand, pressing the Daggers back deep without actually creating that many clear cut opportunities.

With passes going astray in midfield and the forwards seeming unable to hold on to the ball some great defending by the back four was being wasted and pressure invited as a result.

The Daggers made it to half time still level but it seemed almost inevitable that unless they changed something Stevenage's pressure would tell. In the 58th minute they got the goal they deserved, a cross from the Daggers right by Simon Travis finding Danny Carroll in space and he headed emphatically past Robbo (right).

By this time Junior had already replaced Steve West, and shortly after Mark Janney came on to replace Danny Hill and the changes pepped the Daggers a little as they pressed for an equaliser. Taking the game to their hosts for a spell, the best chances came from set pieces, the closest to an equaliser being Tim Cole's header clutched by Westhead under the cross bar.

Pressing forward so much opened gaps though and as a result Anthony Elding was able to break in the 76th minute, his shot from distance somehow ending up in the corner of the net to end the game as a contest.

Lee Matthews (left) and his team could only play out the rest of the match hoping for a break that didn't come as Stevenage closed the game down as they had failed to at Victoria Road when 2-0 up.

With the Stevenage fans enjoying their rare recent superiority the Daggers streamed for the exits early, although the chant of "Dagenham, Dagenham what's the score" was met with "2-0 to the Farnborough"!

As the scores filtered through from other games, Hereford lost and Halifax only drew, making the defeat a little more palatable, leaving the gap between the final play-off spot in 5th place, now occupied by the Daggers, to 6th still 7 points with just six games remaining.

Three wins would now assure the Daggers of a place in the first ever Nationwide Conference promotion play off.
