Advantage Daggers
The Daggers head up to Christie Park on Bank Holiday Monday with the narrowest of advantages having won by the odd goal in three at Victoria Road.

The Daggers 16 was still without Junior McDougald , not risked yet, and Ashley Vickers who was feeling unwell. As a result Lee Goodwin played left back and Tarkan Mustafa right back in an unbalanced looking defence.

The Daggers made light of their problems though by storming to an early lead. In the seventh minute Tim Cole found Paul Terry who played Mark Stein (left) in on goal and Steino crashed a shot past Mawson.

Just over a minute later Morecambe showed that they were not going to lie down as Drummond's shot hammered back off the post.

The Daggers had the better of the first 20 minutes or do, but Morecambe began to take control, particularly wide where Mustafa and Goodwin were twisted and turned repeatedly by Thompson and Elam. It wasn't a night for fullbacks though as Mark Janney (right) and John McGrath also caused danger whenever they ran at Morecambe, Perkins in particular having a torrid night.

Just on the half hour Morecambe were level predictably having got away down the Daggers left. Thompson's cross caused panic in the Daggers defence and Tim Cole's attempted clearance hit Stewart Drummond in the face and bounced past Robbo.

Rigoglioso, always a thorn in the Daggers side in recent meetings could have put the Shimps ahead but he shot over and the Daggers were probably grateful to get to half time level.

The Daggers came out in the second half playing much better though and created several good openings, John McGrath (left) in particular shooting just over having been put in by Janney.

As the half dragged on the Daggers didn't panic though and in the 69th minute a slick passing move freed Paul Terry to run in one on one with Mswson. Drummond stretched out a leg in desparation and tripped Terry for a cast iron penalty.

Inexplicably, the normally card happy Mr Kettle decided a yellow was enough for Drummond. Mark Stein though made Morecambe really pay by slamming home the penalty. to put the Daggers back in front.

The Daggers stormed forward looking for what may be a decisive two goal margin to take to the second leg but Morecambe managed to hold out. As a result, both teams will be confident going into the second leg next Monday.

In the other semi final, Doncaster left it until the 93rd minute to grab an equaliser to take that game back to Chester City's Deva Stadium at 1-1.
