The Daggers face a tricky replay if they are to progress beyond the first hurdle in this seasons FA Trophy having been held to a 0-0 draw by Doc Martens high fliers Crawley Town.

The home side lined up in last season's shirts and this seasons shorts and looked out of sorts for much of the game despite dominating the chances at least. With Ashley Vickers suspended they lined up with pretty much the team that was predicted but with Mark Janney on the right in his first start for some time. Mark Bentley, about whom there is much speculation that he will be leaving the club in the very near future, was on the bench.

Once again the Daggers dominated the early exchanges, keeping the ball on the floor and taking the game to Crawley but unable to force a clear opening. It was ex-Conference player Justin Gregory who had the first significant effort on goal, Danny Naisbitt (right) saving his left footed shot after the midfielder had beaten Tarkan Mustafa.

At the other end Paul Bruce’s shot from the edge of the area was deflected wide before the best chance of the match fell to Chris Piper. Richard Pacquette’s cross was slipped to Piper inside ten yards of goal in all sorts of space by Steve Watts, but Piper then screwed his shot wide of the target when any kind of shot on goal almost had to score.

Andy Little in the visiting goal kept the game scoreless when he got a hand to Steve Watts’ header from a Mark Janney cross which looked in but for an outstretched right hand from the keeper who diverted the ball onto the post and away.

The most controversial moment of the game came seconds before half time when Richard Pacquette's turn and shot saw Little again divert the ball onto the post. Chris Piper (left) was the first to react as he bundled the ball over the line only for his celebrations to be cut short by a mystifying offside decision.

The interval seemed to benefit the visitors, as it appeared to have halted the momentum the Daggers had built up towards the end of the first period.

The second half started slowly and it was not until around the hour mark that Tarkan Mustafa had the first chance of the second half his shot from the edge of the area going fractionally wide. Shortly after Piper’s excellent cross found Pacquette unmarked in the six-yard area but his header flew over the crossbar without the keeper needing to make a save.

Mark Bentley replaced Chris Piper in the final 15 minutes and he almost made the difference immediately, picking up the ball twenty yards from goal, the midfielder’s right-footed attempt was easily gathered by Little. Bentley then headed a Danny Hill corner over the bar.

As the match drew to a close both sides had chances to win it, Pacquette (right) seeing another header run inches wide of the far post. Between the two Pacquette chances Dwayne Plummer’s shot was blocked by Lee Goodwin.

The game drew to a close still scoreless though so the two clubs have to try again in the replay which will take place at Crawley's Broadfield Stadium on Tuesday 13th January, with a 7:45pm kick off.

The draw for the fourth round will take place on Monday lunchtime.
