Daggers Back On Track
The Daggers tonight got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 win over Leigh RMI at Hilton Park.

The Daggers nearly took the lead with around a quarter of an hour gone when John McGrath (left) set up Danny Shipp but his shot was cleared by Stuart Coburn in the Leigh goal.

Within a minute, Neil Cambpell wasted a golden opportunity for the hosts, heading against the bar with Tony Roberts well beaten.

On around half an hour, a Mark Janney (right) cross had to be cleared by Hefferman when it looked like a good goalscoring opportunity for the visitors.

A few minutes later and Janney again provided a fantastic cross which was headed powefully goalwards by West but somehow, Coburn pulled off a remarkable save.

A mix-up in the Daggers defence though almost allowed the hosts to take control of the game when a Mark Ford shot was saved well at full stretch by Tony Roberts (left).

However, with 39 minutes on the clock, the Railwaymen did take the lead when some unsubtle route-one play saw Keith Scott head the ball on to Ian Monk who slotted the ball calmly past Roberts.

The Daggers almost got straight back on level terms when Lee Goodwin's header whistled over the bar.

The Daggers did draw level though, moments before half-time when another outstanding cross from Mark Janney was knocked on by Tim Cole (left). Coburn was only able to parry the ball and Steve West was on hand to blast the ball home.

Moments after the restart, the visitors almost made it two when McGrath hit the post from another great pass from Janney.

Five minutes into the half and West (right) doubled his tally. He beat Lancaster on the edge of the box and unleashed a powerful shot which gave Coburn no chance.

The home side did all they could to try and get back into the match with Campbell going close but there was no stopping the Daggers and West again went close.

However, the victory was completed with time running out when West headed home a rebound after his initial shot had been cleared.

The win leaves Leigh deep in the relegation mire and the Daggers now looking a relatively safe bet for the play-offs.
