Daggers Held By 10-man Telford
The Daggers were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Telford United on Saturday.

In a poor match dominated by Telford's somewhat less than sportsmanlike tactics, the Daggers had new signings, Alan Kimble and Tony Scully (left) on display with both Chris Piper and Alex Meechan featuring in the starting eleven.

Tony Scully went agonisingly close with 12 minutes gone, firing just over.

With Leon Braithwaite (right) being marked very closely, it came as no real surprise when, on 29 minutes, Neil Howarth pulled Braithwaite down on the edge of the area and was rightfully shown the red card.

On 31 minutes, Scully again went close, putting his free-kick into the arms of the Telford 'keeper.

Five minutes later and Telford got an exceptionally lucky break. Having earned a free-kick, the referee allowed them to take the kick from over ten yards closer to the goal than the offence took place and it was from this free-kick that Ricketts crossed the ball for Lee Mills to score with his head.

Six minutes into the second half, the Daggers were awarded a penalty when Matt Clarke needlessly handled the ball in the area. Chris Piper (left) powered the ball into the left corner to level the scores.

The Daggers then had another two clear penalties turned down by the inept referee. The first for a foul on Bentley in the area and the second when Alex Meechan was wrestled to the ground by the neck.

With 54 minutes on the clock, it looked like the Daggers may have done enough to take the three points but Tim Cole was unable to keep his header down and it went over the bar.
