Daggers beaten again
The Daggers' turbulent season continued yesterday when they were beaten by Conference newcomers, Tamworth at The Lamb.

Fielding a side devoid of attacking options, it was always going to be an uphill struggle for Garry Hill's men and so it proved.

The home side came very close to taking the lead early on when Lee Ayres looped a header goalwards, only for James Pullen (left) to tip the ball over the bar.

The Daggers then proceeded to gain the upper hand in the match and Danny Shipp had a one on one but hit it right at Whitehead in the Tamworth goal.

Tamworth fought back though, but despite a fair amount of pressure, the hosts were unable to create any real openings.

The Daggers nearly took the lead from a corner when Tim Cole (right) fired a shot goalwards only for Whitehead to save well, pushing the ball round the post.

Tony Scully was creating problems for the Tamworth defence, but the next real chance fell to the hosts when Andy Watson latched onto a cross from Darby but James Pullen pushed the ball away and Rickards' follow-up was cleared off the line by Ashley Vickers (left).

Just before half-time, Rickards saw a powerful shot brilliantly saved by Pullen at full stretch.

After the break, the hosts took a stranglehold on the match in the second half though with the Daggers unable to offer much in the way of resistance.

In the 51st minute, Rob Warner played a great pass to Scott Rickards on the right win and his cut back from the byline found Tris Whitman who side-footed the ball into the net past Pullen.

Tamworth piled on the pressure and it was only the efforts of Tim Cole that prevented the visitors from going further behind.

The Daggers tried to get back on level terms and almost did when Lenny Piper (left) struck a long range shot but Whitehead was equal to it and pushed it away.

The Daggers couldn't hold out forever and with 69 minutes on the clock, Whitman scored his second to put the match beyond the Daggers. A long throw wasn't cleared by the Daggers and Whitman latched onto the loose ball to fire it into the net.

Garry Hill made two substitutes with around ten minutes remaining but it was too little, too late and the Lambs deservedly took all three points.

The result leaves the Daggers play-off chances looking increasingly slender and manager Garry Hill is coming under a great deal of pressure from certain elements of the support. Certainly, 11 points after 11 games is a worryingly low return and needs to be improved if the Daggers are to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.

Many thanks to Shaun for his assistance with this report.
