Daggers Wilt In The Heat
Saturday saw the Daggers first opening day defeat since 1995, going down 2-1 to Leigh RMI at Hilton Park.

The match got off to a poor start for the Daggers with the hosts taking the lead in the 17th minute. Tarkan Mustafa (left) failed to disposses Neil Robinson on the right and his cross was well met by David McNiven to slot the ball past Pullen.

With the Railwaymen having the better of the play, the Daggers defence was forced into action on several occasions.

However, it was not all one-way traffic and Leigh 'keeper, Stuart Coburn made a fine save from a Mark Janney (right) shot.

The Daggers managed to pull level four minutes before the interval when Paul Bruce scored from a brilliantly taken free-kick.

The visitors found themselves behind again in the 49th minute when McNiven scored his and the host's second, lofting the ball over Pullen from considerable distance.

With Leigh looking to extend their lead, the Daggers were stretched at the back and Ged Keilty could well have added a third from a Heald free-kick.

The addition of substitute, Mark Bentley (left) improved the Daggers fortunes in the match, but he somehow missed three good chances and the hosts held-out to take all three points.

Elsewhere, newly relegated Shrewsbury Town and Exeter City both took first half leads at home, but both Margate and Halifax Town equalised late on to take a share of the points. Dr Martens Champions, Tamworth lost 3-1 at home to Hereford while Aldershot Town beat Ten-man Accrinton Stanley 2-1 at the Rec in the battle of the other newcomers. Barnet overcame Telford 2-0, FGR and Northwich was scoreless, as was the Stevenage v Chester match. Gravesend lost 1-2 at home to Burton while Morecambe and Scarborough both notched up 2-1 home wins over Woking and Farnborough.
