Daggers earn point at Hereford
The Daggers tonight earned a deserved point at Edgar Street against current Conference leaders, Hereford United.

With Garry Hill's options severely limited by injury and suspension, it was an unchanged Daggers' side that took to the field and enjoyed periods of good possession and pressure in equal measure with periods of all hands to the pump last-ditch defending.

The Daggers had some promising attacks with Tony Scully (above) and Mark Bentley (right) looking especially dangerous, but the host seemed quicker to shut the Daggers down and nothing came of the attacks in a quite low-key first half.

The second half started with Hereford seemingly having stepped up their game a little but as the half wore on, the Daggers came back into the game more and did have some good chances through both Alex Meechan and Mark Bentley.

Then, against the run of play, Hereford took the lead.  A free kick on the left found Smith on the edge of the area and he stroked the ball into the net, leaving the otherwise excellent Pullen with no chance.

Eleven minutes later, the Daggers found themselves back on level terms.  After pinging around the box from a corner, the ball fell to Dean Beckwith who swung his left foot at the ball and it shot into the bottom right corner of the goal.

With time running out, the Daggers were forced into making their third substitution when Paul Bruce (left) landed awkwardly and appeared to severely damage his shoulder.  Alan Kimble came on to replace him and one of his first touches was to clear the ball from the area when a goal for the Bulls looked all but certain.

As the game moved into injury time, the Daggers settled for the draw and played some very professional keep-ball football in the corner to run down the clock.

The draw is certainly an excellent result against a normally free-scoring team and there are signs that the recovery is fully underway.
