Daggers salvage a point
The Daggers left Margate's temporary Dover home with just a point on Saturday after another frustrating defensive performance and a great late come back.

The Daggers lined up with Alan Kimble at left back for Paul Bruce, who had been suffering with flu all week, and with Leon Braithwaite replacing returned loanee Kirk Jackson up front. Otherwise it was the same side that lost so heavily to Hereford.

Unfortunately the visitors started exactly how they had left off in that game, and before most of the crowd had finished changing ends it was 1-0 to Margate. The goal was timed at just 72 seconds, Rocky Baptiste picking up a poor back pass and waltzing round Tony Roberts to roll the ball into an empty net.

With the back four again all over the place Margate ran at the Daggers time and again early on. Watson burst into the box on 7 minutes tracked by Danny Hill (right) who forced him wide then stupidly hacked at his legs. Penalty Margate, booking Danny Hill. Adrian Clarke made it 2-0 from the spot and the Daggers were rocking. 

The Daggers finally woke up and started to get forward after this and on 12 minutes they were back in the game. Chris Moore burst clear and his deep cross was headed back by Mark Janney and Jimmy Jackson nodded past Smith in the Margate goal from close range.

All was still not well at the back though and Sigere made it 3-1 in 20 minutes, Rocky Baptiste putting him away once again and the finish ripping past Roberts in the Daggers goal.

At this point the Daggers had let eight goals in in 40 minutes of football, and the visiting support were less than impressed. Both side had further chances to add to their score, Chris Moore (left) in particular looking lively and forcing one great save from Smith, but it was still 3-1 at the half time break.

Garry Hill will have withered the paint in the dressing room during the break and whatever was said worked as the second half was pretty much one way traffic throughout.

As the Daggers piled on the pressure Jimmy Jackson hit the crossbar with a shot from 15 yards after 57 minutes, and chance after chance was scrambled away somehow by the Margate defence and Phil Smith in the Margate goal.

With ten minutes left Garry Hill finally shuffled his pack. Off went Mustafa and Hill replaced by the Piper brothers as the Daggers pushed Danny Shipp up and went 3-4-3. 

The move finally unlocked the Margate defence and just two minutes later Chris Moore finished with a close-range shot from Shipp's low cross.

Scenting another dramatic turn around they piled forward looking for the equaliser, getting it when Leon Braithwaite slipped the ball to Danny Shipp (right) whose shot from 8 yards cannoned in off a defender on 86 minutes.

Still the Daggers pushed on, forcing a couple of corners which were well dealt with by Smith, but with time running out tempers flared on the halfway line and John Keister was shown a straight red card.

Time ran out with the Daggers still on the attack but unable to grab the winner they probably just about deserved on the balance of the 90 minutes.
