Stein hits 50 as Daggers squash Bees
The Daggers saw off Barnet with a much better performance today hitting five again past Barnet.

Mark Bentley (left) scored two headers in the first half and Mark Stein hit a second half hat trick to complete his 50 for the club in just 86 games played.

In a highly entertaining game, the Daggers seemed more coherent than they had against Stevenage during midweek and brushed aside a good Barnet team with relative ease.

With talk before the match of Paul Terry's imminent transfer to Yeovil Town, there were a few changes to the side that had played on Tuesday. Tony Roberts (right) returned in goal with James Pullen dropping to the bench. Chris Piper was given a start, as were Paul Bruce and Mark Janney, in place of Paul Terry, Danny Shipp and Jimmy Jackson. Former Dagger, Mark Rooney started for the visitors.

From the kick-off, the Daggers had the Bees on the back foot and had the lions' share of the play. An early chance was cleared off the line by a Barnet defender and a couple of Paul Bruce (left) free-kicks went sailing over.

With 30 minutes on the clock, the impressive Mark Bentley scored his and the Daggers' first of the afternoon, finally heading the ball home after Chris Piper's initial shot from a Mark Janney cross was pushed away and Braithwaite laid the ball on.

Four minutes later, Bentley (right) doubled the home side's advantage, heading home Paul Bruce's near post corner.

With the Daggers looking comfortable at half time, it seemed that the season had finally been given the kick-start it so sorely needed and the foul mouthed abuse witnessed on Tuesday was noticeably absent.

In the 58th minute, Mark Stein (left) scored his first of the match, curling the ball beautifully into the far corner past Naisbitt following a great through ball from Paul Bruce to make it 3-0.

Within a minute and Stein had doubled his tally to make it 4-0, slotting the ball home to the annoyance of Naisbitt whose histrionics should have seen him shown the red card but the referee who had been exceptionally weak all match failed to even caution him.

With 70 minutes gone, Barnet managed to strike back to reduce the deficit. Ashley Vickers attempted a pass back to Roberts, but he underhit it and Giuliano Grazioli latched onto the ball to lift it over Roberts from the edge of the area.

With a minute to go plus stoppages, Barnet scored again when Giuliano Grazioli scored his second from the penalty spot after Lee Matthews (right) was adjudged to have felled Guy Lopez in the box when the referee fell for his theatrical dive.

The Daggers had gone from a comfortable 4-0 lead to 4-2 and, although time was rapidly running out, there was still time for another scare when Vickers (left) again underhit a backpass, but this time, Roberts was able to make up the ground.

With the clock showing 90 minutes, Stein completed his hattrick, heading home an inch-perfect Paul Bruce cross.

The win sees the Daggers move up to 14th place and must surely give them more confidence for Saturday's difficult trip to Morecambe.
