Tamworth Report

The Daggers were held to a goal less draw at home by Tamworth on a cold night in front of the smallest crowd of the season.

After conceding heavily in recent games, the only real positive that Daggers can take from this game is that his defence kept a clean sheet in what was an awful game in bitterly cold conditions.

The Daggers lined up with only one change from the starting eleven at Margate, Danny Hill suspended, Chris Piper (right) taking his place.

Tamworth banished thoughts that they had come for a point by playing positively, if a little too directly, throughout. To be honest though, neither team looked too likely to break the deadlock though throughout a game of few clear cut chances.

The first of the game fell to the Lambs Sylla who ran on to a long through ball and tried to chip Roberts in the Daggers goal, Alan Kimble (left) getting back to head off the line.

The Daggers should have had a penalty when Chris Moore (right) was caught as he ran into the Tamworth area. Referee Singh, who had a picky game not up to his usual high standard, gave the foul only after the lineswoman signalled it, but spotted the ball a yard outside the area. Typically on the night the cross from the free kick came to nothing. 

The Daggers slowly got on top after this, still without really threatening, Mark Janney the outlet for most of the good approach play. Chris Moore uncharacteristically sliced a shot wide when well placed then Leon Braithwaite placed his shot rather than blasting it, Lambs keeper Ryan Price saving well. Chris Piper had the best chance though, heading well wide from six yards out.

The view at half time was that the game could only get better, but unfortunately that was not really the case. Danny Shipp and the Lambs Lee Colkin had shots from distance that scarcely troubled the keepers.

Late on Sylla's header from a Paul Barnes cross flashed wide the Daggers goal just before the closest effort of the night, a well worked short corner seeing Paul Bruce's cross met by Leon Braithwaite (right). The header was a good one but struck Rob Warner on the goal line and was cleared.

The clock ticked mercifully down to the end of the game letting the crowd get back in the warm. The last evening game of 2003/04 will not live long in the memory, like the season as a whole.
