Daggers win in the wind

The Daggers won a wind effected game that will not live long in the memory at the Glyn Hopkin Stadium on Saturday with a gusting gale blowing from the Pondfield End effecting just about everything that the two teams tried throughout. 

The Daggers stuck with the starting line up from the game at Farnborough for this one, Dannys Hill and Shipp back from suspension but on the bench.

With Woking playing with the wind first they had the best of the chances in the first half but all too often the ball ran long off the pitch or through to Tony Roberts (right). Stuart Noble had the two best early chances for the Cards, a low shot saved by Tony Roberts got down well to hold his effort and then a shot dragged wide when he was well placed.

The Daggers really just held on, waiting for their shot at playing with the wind. As a result the early exchanges in the second half were similar to the first, the Daggers on top now, but unable to work out the right strength and direction of pass to unlock Woking. 

The game began to warm up into the last quarter though with Tim Cole clattering Luke Cornwall and getting booked. Garry Hill had seen enough and replaced Chris Piper with Danny Hill (left), making his 100th appearance for the Daggers and then pulled the ineffective Leon Braithwaite off, replacing him with club top scorer Danny Shipp.

The moves worked as Hill started to pull the strings through the middle and Shipp actually started having a pop at goal, immediately testing keeper Ashley Bayes with a long-range effort from 25 yards. Jimmy Jackson (right) also got the message forcing Bayes to get down well to hold his strike.

The pressure finally told when the Daggers grabbed the winner on 76 minutes. From a corner on the Daggers left taken by Mark Janney, Tim Cole's goal bound header was cleared off the line but the Woking defence were kept under pressure and when the ball was thrown in again Danny Shipp was there to head home.

Woking tried to get back into the match but loan signing Mark Venus who was Steady Eddie throughout made sure that there really was not much chance of the Daggers letting the lead slip and the game ended with a narrow, but just about deserved victory for the home side.
