Shrewsbury Town Report
by Hardy on 04/01/2004

The Daggers yesterday demolished Shrewsbury Town 5-0 at The Glyn Hopkin Stadium, continuing their somewhat unpredictable season.

Nationwide Conference
Glyn Hopkin Stadium
Saturday 3rd January 2004
Simply Irresistible
From out of nowhere the Daggers suddenly found their form and handed out a thorough thrashing to one of the form teams in the Conference on Saturday.

With Danny Shipp out for the next few weeks having been carried off at Aldershot on New Years Day and Steve Watts dropping to the bench the Daggers lined up in a more familiar 4-4-2.  Richard Pacquette got a home debut and the in-form Chris Moore made up the front two. In midfield Danny Hill (right) came in in place of Shipp for a rare start alongside Chris Piper with Tarkan Mustafa and Paul Bruce wide. 

The back four of Lee Goodwin, Ashley Vickers, Tim Cole and Jimmy Jackson lined up in front of Danny Naisbitt, still deputising for the injured Robbo.. The one big surprise was the omission of Mark Bentley from the team, reduced to warming the bench for this one.

The Daggers started fast once again, taking the game to the Shrews from the kick off. The first chance came early to Pacquette for the whom the ball dropped around the penalty spot but his well struck shot was just too close to Howie who saved. Shortly afterwards an attempted headed back pass fell short and the razor sharp Chris Moore nipped in to lob Howie only to see the ball bounce inches wide. 

Having seen the Daggers do the same to Aldershot Town for 20 minutes on Boxing Day, the crowd wondered if they would run out of steam once more. This time though the Daggers were not to be denied.

On 29 minutes Pacquette slipped the ball through to Moore who raced clear and coolly slipped the ball into the net past Howie. The fans were still celebrating when just a couple of minutes later Paul Bruce (left) was fed in the area and was caught by Darren Moss having slipped the ball past the defender, referee Russell immediately pointing to the spot and booking Moss.

Chris Piper (right) made no mistake with the penalty, comprehensively beating Howie to make it 2-0. With the home fans pinching themselves two became three on 39 minutes. This time a slick passing move found Tarkan Mustafa in space and he slipped the ball to Pacquette who slammed the ball home from 18 yards out.

Shortly after this Danny Naisbitt made a decent save from Street in what was Shrewsbury's only real chance of the half to keep the lead intact.

In the second half it was more of the same, with the Daggers in no mood to sit on a comfortable lead. Jimmy Quinn put himself on in an attempt to change the Shrews luck but they were so rarely in the Daggers half it made no difference.

Tarkan Mustafa's (left) shot was well saved by Howie and Pacquette hit the side netting as the Daggers looked for more. The only surprise was it took until the 70th minute for the fourth to come.

Once again it was the outstanding Moore (right) that grabbed his fifth goal in as many games. Fed by Danny Hill he turned his marker one way then the other as he drove into the area before shooting across Howie into the far corner for a fabulous goal.

Up to then Howie in the Shrewsbury goal had actually had a good game. The fifth, after 73 minutes, was down to him though, as he came for a Jackson corner and missed it, the ball dropping to Lee Goodwin (left) who scored from an acute angle. 

With the Daggers fans dancing on the terraces Garry Hill effectively declared his score by putting on first Tony Perfect, then Tom McGowen for Conference debuts. Watts replaced Pacquette too but was unable to grab the goal he would so dearly have liked against his former club.

Late in the game Shrewsbury had a couple of decent chances to nick a consolation goal, the best falling to Quinn who headed down from a cross only to see the ball bounce over the bar.

At the final whistle the crowd stood and applauded the Daggers on their warm down "lap of honour".

More of the same in the coming weeks will do very nicely indeed.
