Depleted Daggers held by Chester
The Daggers were today held to a goalless draw at the Glyn Hopkin Stadium by an in-form Chester City side in a low-key game.

With Daggers' manager, Garry Hill, having barely enough fit players to field a side, the line-up was pretty-much as predicted.  Dean Beckwith (left) was given his Daggers debut in the heart of defence following his loan signing from Gillingham yesterday, and adapted very well to life at Victoria Road.  Indeed, it was Beckwith who saved the day when Pullen allowed the ball to pass him and the Chester striker would have had the simplest of tap-ins had Beckwith not timed his tackle so well.

The visitors started marginally the stronger with Michael Twiss bringing out a save from James Pullen (right - picture courtesy Dave Simpson) with a powerful shot as early as eight minutes into the match.

Alex Meechan should have done better when the ball was fed to him in the 20th minute but, despite his good positioning, he was unable to unleash a shot on goal.

The game was dominated by the two sides' defences though and there was not much in the way of incident on which to report.

Towards the end of the half, Danny Shipp (left) rifled in a vicious long range shot but Wayne Brown was well places and held the ball comfortably.

The second half saw more of the same from both sides with the two defences cancelling each other out.

With 20 minutes remaining, Alex Meechan (right) wasted the Daggers' best chance of the match, shooting wide with the goal at his mercy.

With a quarter of an hour remaining, the Daggers again came close to taking all three points.  A free-kick from Alan Kimble reached Ashley Vickers who headed the ball goalwards, only to see Brown pull off a fine save to tip the ball away.

The last real chance of the match fell to Mark Bentley, but his shot was poor and flew tamely over the bar.
