Another bad away day for the Daggers
The Daggers today lost their third consecutive away match of the season, going down 2-1 at Gay Meadow against Conference newcomers, Shrewsbury Town.

With Mark Stein missing through injury, manager Garry Hill elected to stick with only Leon Braithwaite (left) in attack and used the extra space to strengthen the midfield.

The Daggers spent much of the first period on the back foot and almost fell behind in the seventh minute when Luke Rogers shot drifted wide of the post.

In the 13th minute, a powerful Greg Rioch shot was pushed brilliantly away by Tony Roberts (right) but on 35 minutes, Roberts was unable to do anything about Jamie Tolley's powerful header which put the hosts 1-0 up.

Six minutes later and the Daggers found themselves 2-0 down and chasing the game. A pass from Steve Jagielka found Cramb in acres of space and he calmly slotted the ball past Roberts and into the net.

The start of the second half saw continued dominance for the Shrews, but as the half wore on, the Daggers were beginning to see more of the ball and on 65 minutes, Alex Meechan was unfortunate not to reduce the deficit but his close-range shot went wide of the target.

Four minutes later though and a Lee Matthews (left) cross fell beautifully for Mark Bentley to place into the back of the net from around five yards out.

With time running out, Meechan pulled off a magnificent save from Scott Howie whilst, at the other end, Tony Roberts had to be alert to save well from former Dagger, Steve Watts (right).

Despite the Daggers putting the Shrews under pressure for the last 20 minutes, they could not find the penetration to steal a share of the points and they remain pointless on their travels this season.
