Stevenage Borough Report

The Daggers confound their critics with a great performance and an excellent win at Stevenage.

It's a funny old game Saint!
Just as many, including me, were writing the Daggers off they came back with a spirited performance and three points from a tough trip to Broadhall Way.

With Tim Cole installed as captain in place of Lee Matthews, now at Hornchurch, the team found its heart and form. After Boro had lost to Aldershot midweek chief Weasel Graham Westley wrote in his programme notes for this one "Please forget Tuesday and judge us on our performance today."  Based on the way the Daggers comfortably saw Boro off, Phil Wallace's trigger finger may well be starting to itch already.

The Daggers welcomed Chris Moore back from suspension for his first ever start following a promising 10 minute debut at Gravesend and he showed more than enough to excite the Daggers fans in the crowd.

Paired with Leon Braithwaite (right) the pacey front two took the game to the home side early on, and Moore could have opened his Daggers account within the first two minutes when he broke free to shoot only for Perez to save. The resulting corner caused panic too and nearly crept in direct at the far post.

On 22 minutes tough Braithwaite limped off once again, his season becoming a succession of niggling injuries, to be replaced by Steve Watts.

Boro fought hard to into the game but found Danny Naisbitt equal to anything they could come up with, the keeper making impressive saves from Maamria, Brady and Gould.

Just as it looked like it was going to be 0-0 at half time the Daggers took the lead. Danny Shipp (left) found a little space on the edge of the area to get in a shot which Perez could only push onto the post and Chris Moore reacted quickest to tuck home the loose ball in injury time.

With the team talks of the managers changed by the goal, the Daggers came out and made the game safe within six minutes of the restart. Again it was Shipp that made the goal, his cross met by Tim Cole at the far post and the header going in off the near post as he headed back across.

Boro stormed forward looking to get something from the game but the Daggers defended calmly, limiting them mostly to shots from distance. The one real chance fell to substitute Rocky Baptiste who scuffed his shot having found space between the otherwise unbeatable Cole and Vickers (right), missing when it seemed it would of been easier to score.

Daggers fans celebrated an unlikely win given the week that had gone by as Boro fans, fickle as ever, headed for the exits early.

The result, and more important the performance was just what the Daggers needed going n to a tough double header with Aldershot over Christmas and New Year. Lets hope the team can reproduce the form of Stevenage on Boxing Day and lay the ghost of Leigh RMI.
