Aldershot Town Report (Away)
by Hardy on 02/01/2004

The Daggers have a pointless festive period going down once again at Aldershot on New Years Day.

Shot through the heart
The Daggers completed a blank Christmas and New Year with another odd goal defeat at the hands of Aldershot Town.

Despite what was a decent performance in many ways against the Shots at home Garry Hill again shuffled his pack for this one, giving a debut to loan signing Richard Pacquette and playing 4-3-3. The players to miss out were Jimmy Jackson (right), who dropped to the bench, and Leon Braithwaite, nowhere to be seen. The decision to move Chris Moore, a consistent threat since his arrival, out to the left of a front three, is a tough one to understand.

The Daggers started brightly and had early chances once again. The two best ones fell to new boy Pacquette. The first, from a Chris Moore cross, was blasted over and the second seemed to get stuck under his studs. At the other end Challinor went close for the Shots.

The home team took the lead when the excellent Aaron McLean made a great run and as Danny Naisbitt came out to save, McLean went round him cut the ball back for Tim Sills to finish.

The Shots dominated the rest of the half and could have gone further ahead when Roscoe D'Sane weaved his way through the defence forcing Naisbitt to save. Aaron McLean was also a threat, a superb tackle from Paul Bruce keeping him out on one occasion.

The Daggers tried hard to pull the game back after the break but could not break a resolute home defence. Danny Shipp (left) was stretchered off just after the hour in a sad end to his 300th appearance in a Daggers shirt.

Shippy was replaced by Jimmy Jackson and the Daggers were still sorting themselves out when the Shots doubled their lead this time Aaron McLean the scorer, latching on to a long ball from Adam Miller after 63 minutes.

The Daggers got back in to the game when Chris Moore scored his third in three games, heading home at the far post in style on 71 minutes. The Daggers pushed after the equaliser and changed shape moving to three at the back when Mark Janney replaced Paul Bruce on 79 minutes.

The Daggers never really looked like getting the leveller though and the Shots looked a constant threat on the break against a depleted back line and comfortably saw the game out to complete the Christmas double and seal their place in the Conference play off race.

The Daggers now sit mid table, cemented in 14th spot twelve points out of the relegation spots and thirteen out of the play offs. With games coming up against six of the current top seven it looks like the FA Trophy is the last chance for making 2003/04 a season to remember.
