Yeovil teach the Daggers a lesson

The Daggers were royally stuffed by the Conference Champions at Victoria Road as Yeovil showed how they came to be where they are against a team looking to be coasting into the play off's. Lets hope that Garry Hill can lift his team or that will be a very short competition.

The Daggers started with Tony Roberts still on the bench, Paul Gothard (right) deputising again, but otherwise the best eleven available, Junior still missing with his back troubles and Vickers suspended.

The visitors were afforded a guard of honour on their way out and started the better side, something the Daggers failed to change until the game was completely over late in the game.

Yeovil consistently pressed the Daggers back and it was no real surprise when they took the lead on 24 minutes. Way's pinpoint cross from the right was headed back by Jackson for Kevin Gall to head home.

The goal encouraged Yeovil into more passing movement, with the Daggers limited to occassional forays forward. Tarkan Mustafa and Danny Shipp (left) whipping some hopeful crosses in to little result, Steve West still not firing and Mark Stein crowded out by good defending more often than not.

John McGrath (right) had one of his weaker performances in a Daggers shirt, frequently misplacing passes and seeming to be constantly drawn in to the centre of the field when the Daggers needed width.

With half time looming Paul Gothard went for a cross that he had no chance with and clattered into Jackson giving away a penalty. The spot kick was well struck but Gothard atoned by diving to his right and parrying it. This gave the fans something to cheer going into the break, but three minutes into the second half the game was effectively over.

Gall broke through a static defence and slipped the ball to Kirk Jackson who had a rediculous amount of time to pick his spot. Worse was to come in the 63rd minute when Gall and Jackson again waltzed through the heart of the Daggers defence for Jackson to pass the ball in for 3-0, then Jackson hit his hattrick five minutes later.

Wholesale changes ensued on both sides, McGrath and Shipp making way for Broom and Hill for the Daggers. Danny Hill huffed and puffed and finally got the Daggers moving in the last quarter of the game, again without any real end product as the game dribbled out to a predictable conclusion, Yeovil happy to take their foot off the gas too.

At the end the Daggers fans stayed to give the worthy champions of the Conference a standing ovation. Let's hope that Yeovil can do the league proud next season in contrast to last seasons "winners". On this showing they should have no trouble.

Other significant results saw Doncaster and Morcambe draw and Chester win to leave the Daggers fifth. A win on Saturday against Forest Green ought to see them finish fourth and face probably Doncaster in the play off semi, with Chester facing Yeovil at Huish Park.
