Consolation Goal

QPR Report
by Nelson on 04/11/2003

The Daggers crash out of the LDV Vans Trophy at the hands of Queens Park Rangers, adding to manager Garry Hill's woes.

Daggers Dumped Out

A late goal from  Tony Scully (left) was not enough to prevent his former team QPR from reaching the third round.

The Daggers put up a good performance in the first half only to have Padula put Rangers ahead on 38 minutes. The Daggers came close to equalising when another former QPR player, Paul Bruce nearly succeeded in scoring following a poor clearance by keeper Nicky Culkin. Only the timely challenge by Terrell Forbes kept Rangers ahead. Leon Braithwaite kept the pressure on with a good ball for Tony Scully who unfortunately fired wide.

The Daggers kept the heat on in the second half but were thwarted by Nicky Culkin who saved from Alan Kimble's (right) free-kick and followed up by disappointing Scully who had taken advantage of a mistake by centre-back Clarke Carlisle.

Rangers second goal came in the 82nd minute when Gareth Ainsworth set up McLeod who slotted the ball decisively past Tony Roberts, ironically also a goalkeeping coach at QPR.

The Daggers hopes were raised on 87 minutes, when Mark Bentley (left) crossed from the right allowing Scully to score at the far post. Braithwaite came close to equalising almost on the final whistle but thanks to Culkin, the Daggers find themselves out of their second cup competition in three games and in the middle of a four game losing streak.

Manager, Garry Hill, will be hoping that the coming free weekend will give him time to work on the team and restore some sort of confidence in time for next week's game against bottom side, Farnborough Town. A defeat against Ken Charlery's side would drag the Daggers deep into trouble and almost certainly put Hill's job in doubt.
