Chester City Report

The Daggers give a good account of themselves but leave the Deva empty handed after a late, late winner.

You win some, you lose some 
For the second game in a row a late late winner decided the Daggers fate but this time it was heartache as a gutsy performance at the home of the Conference leaders came to nothing. 

The Daggers only change from the Accrington game two weeks ago was the absence of Chris Piper, suspended for his 5th yellow of the season. Danny Shipp took centre midfield as a result with Lenny Piper (right), back from loan at Margate, on the bench.

The Daggers had the first chance of the game when Jimmy Jackson fired in a left footed shot from the edge of the area but Chester keeper, Ian Turner, dived low to his right and deflected the ball with his legs for a corner. 

Moments later at the other end Heard crossed for Clare to half-volley a shot straight at Roberts (left). In the 18th minute, Chester took the lead and once again it was a penalty given for a foul by the keeper, a costly trait recently. Roberts clearly brought down Alex Smith in the box and referee Matadar pointed to the spot.

The foul was not judged even worthy of a yellow card but the daggers were punished when Daryl Clare fired the ball in, sending Roberts the wrong way. 

The Daggers had a cast iron chance for an equaliser late in the half when Mark Janney (right) crossed to the far post  and Chris Moore headed the ball onto Kirk Jackson's hand and gave away a free kick when it seemed easier to score.

The Daggers continued to threaten in the second half. Early on Chris Moore found Mark Janney but he blasted the ball into the side netting. It was a end to end game though and Tony Roberts made up for giving away the penalty by making a number of great saves particularly a close range effort from Darryn Stamp and a later effort from Danny Williams. 

At the midway point of the half, Garry Hill switched to a 4-3-3 formation and brought on Leon Braithwaite (left), a move which worked within three minutes when the Leon equalised with a great far post header from a Chris Moore cross. 

Desperate for the win, Chester made changes bringing on Michael Twiss and Ben Davies and the Daggers followed suit by bringing on Alan Kimble for Chris Moore, who had been ill in the week, and switching back to 4-4-2. 

Chester tore into the Daggers for the last 20 minutes and Roberts made an outstanding point-blank save from Clare. Clare also saw a goal bound shot cleared off the line by Vickers. 

As the game moved into injury time, Chester had a goal ruled offside as it looked like the Daggers had got the point they deserved but right at the death in the 93rd minute Twiss got away down the left and  pulled the ball back for Stamp to stab home from the edge of the six-yard area and seal the win.

The three points for Chester, coupled with a shock 1-0 home defeat for Hereford United by Woking, means that City are now 8 points clear with 11 games left in the season. The Daggers can do City a big favour with a win over Hereford in their next game, at home to the Bulls in a televised game on Friday evening.
