Halifax Town Report
by Nelson on 03/11/2003

The Daggers slump to a third successive defeat to leave them flirting with the relegation zone with a third of the season gone with a gutless display at the Shay.

Daggers fall short again
Saturday saw the Daggers travel up to Yorkshire to face Halifax Town at the Shay on the back of two straight defeats at the hands of Burton Albion and Ryman League side, Thurrock.

The match saw another awful display from the visitors throughout and Halifax ran out deserved 3-0 winners without the need to break much sweat to do so.

This week's variation on tactics was to play Paul Bruce in central midfield with Mark Bentley and Tony Scully wide. Scully was again anonymous and it wasn't until Mark Janney came on for the last 20 odd minutes that the Daggers threatened up the flanks at all. Tim Cole (right) returned in central defence after missing the last month and looked short of match practice. 

The match started in the worst possible way for Garry Hill's men when Christian Lee put the home side into a 4th minute lead, firing home from a Jake Sagere cross.

The Daggers' troubles were doubled when Ashley Vickers (left) was somewhat harshly adjudged to have handled inside the area. Referee Hewitt gave the penalty and then changed his mind after consulting his assistant and gave the free kick just outside the area.

It was no reprieve for the Daggers though as Kevin Sandwith stepped up and hit the ball along the floor as the wall jumped giving Tony Roberts no chance whatsoever to make it 2-0.

The Daggers then had possibly their best spell of the match with Steve Watts (right) bringing an excellent save out of Halifax goalkeeper, Mark Cartwright. It was the hosts who scored again though when debutante Jamie McCombe headed home a Craig Midgley free-kick almost unchallenged to put Halifax 3 up within half an hour.

Last season the Daggers had also found themselves three down at the Shay but fought back for a draw. This season, that sort of result never looked remotely a possibility though.

The second half saw the Daggers battle much harder than they had in the first half but they were unable to find their way through a solid Halifax defence which had pretty much set itself out to hold what they had earned.

So the Daggers find themselves sliding ever further down the table and, even at this relatively early stage of the season, must be feeling that relegation is a distinct possibility. Leigh RMI's unlikely 1-0 win at Edgar Street means that the Daggers are just three points outside the third relegation spot with a third of the season gone.
