Daggers seal play offs
Dagenham & Redbridge reached the play off's with a comfortable but un-spectacular win over Northwich Victoria at the Vic.

With Junior McDougald out still after his back injury at Morecambe, the Daggers started with Mark Stein and Steve West up front and no recognised attacking back up on the bench. The back four was the 2000/01 first choice of Goodwin, Matthews, Cole and Vickers, while midfield featured Mustafa and McGrath out wide with Steve Heffer and Danny Shipp through the middle.

The game was less than riveting early on, the best chance falling to Lee Goodwin (left) after just five minutes, his shot well saved by Parry in the Vic's goal. The visitors had a chance from a free kick on the edge of the area but Tony Roberts leapt like a salmon to his right to tip the ball away.

The game really came alive just on the half hour. Mark Stein found space in the Vic's box and slipped the ball to Danny Shipp (right) who shot hard across the goal and in at the left hand post.

Just a minute later the Daggers found themselves facing 10 men when Jamie McGuire went way over the box of the ball on Lee Matthews and saw yellow then red having been booked early on for a petulant stamp.

Possibly believing it was game over already the Daggers visibly took their foot off the peddle and the game drifted to half time without further significant incident.

In the second half it was pretty much one way traffic with the Daggers well on top but not able to put the game away with a second goal. Steve West saw his header come back off the bar and had several chances go close before Northwich scared the wits out of the watching Daggers fans by claiming an equaliser. A shot from distance was in-explicably spilled by Tony Roberts and the rebound rammed home to the delight of the Vic's bench only for the referee to spot the linesman's flag raised for offside.

The incident seemed to spur the Daggers into life. Steve West saw another shot come back off the bar as Danny Hill (left), on for Shipp, pulled the strings from midfield. Tarkan Mustafa, who had a great game, finally split the Vic's defence open, finding Mark Stein in space to put the game beyond doubt with a well taken second in the 89th minute.

Even then it could have been three, Stein again running clear and rounding Parry but lifting his shot too high, seeing it crash back off the bar.

News filtered through as the final whistle blew that Halifax were beating Hereford, a result that would see the play off spot sealed. The crowd waited while the result was confirmed and applauded the team on a well deserved warm down run.

Chester City's draw with Woking meant that Yeovil were champions without kicking a ball, and the late televised win at Doncaster was little more than a victory celebration.

The four play off teams are now confirmed as the Daggers, Doncaster, Chester and Morecambe who are all now on 71 points. Who plays who is yet to be settled but the race itself is now over.
