A sad farewell
The Daggers bid farewell to manager, Garry Hill (left) today with an extremely poor performance demonstrating none of the fighting team spirit for which Hill's teams have become known.

Following Hill's announcement of his intended resignation at the end of the season, it seemed as though this was playing on the squad's minds throughout the game.

The visitors took advantage of the Daggers lacklustre performance and nearly scored through Ben Surey early on but his long range shot beat both Tony Roberts (right) and the post.

Roberts saved well from a Steve Perkins header in the 22nd minute and the bar kept the scores level when James Pinnock latched onto a poor clearance from Alan Kimble, firing in a shot from range and against the woodwork.

Towards the end of the half, Chris Piper (left) raced onto a great through ball but, in an effort to chest the ball down, handled and was shown a very harsh yellow card for his troubles.

The first half had been entirely dull and as predictable as end of season encounters frequently are but the second half came to life early on.

Lee Gledhill's cross was punched clear by Roberts in the 48th minute but only as far as Roy Essandoh who made no mistake to slot the ball into the unguarded net with the Daggers' keeper stranded.

Four minutes later and the Daggers found themselves down to ten men.  Chris Piper mistimed his challenge on Justin Skinner and, where his first booking had been harsh, his second was justified and he earned himself an early bath.

The visitors doubled their lead when Pinnock beat Roberts and slotted home on 58 minutes.

This seemed to spur the Daggers on a little and, for a while, they did try to get themselves back into the game.  However, save for a committed performance from Mark Janney (right), none of the home side were on top of their game and the Fleet defence coped easily with anything the Daggers could muster.

With the Daggers in disarray, the third and fourth goals came as no surprise.  First Ben Walshe tapped home a Moussa Sidibe cross with eight minutes remaining before blasting home from an Essandoh backheel four minutes later.

So a downbeat end to Garry Hill's reign at Victoria Road.  There's much to look back on with pride, but this season is probably best left forgotten.
