Daggers Lose At Home Again

The Daggers faced their first match since the departure of Garry Hill last weekend and found themselves thwarted by a gutsy Morecambe performance and some inept refereeing.

In an incident-packed match, the Daggers managed to concede two penalties within the space of three minutes, had two clear penalty shouts turned away by the referee and scored a sure-fire contender for Goal of the Season.

The hosts started the match with a confidence to their game that hasn't been seen at Victoria Road for some time and with Mark Janney (left) causing all sorts of problems for the Morecambe defence, could have taken the lead within the first few minutes, but Janney's shot was well saved by Craig Mawson.

Despite some positive play from the Daggers, the visitors were soaking up all the pressure and started to grow in confidence themselves and Garry Hunter had a good shot from range well saved by Tony Roberts.

Then came the first of the the two penalties for Morecambe.  The ball was crossed across the area and struck the outstretched hand of Ashley Vickers (right).  Danny Carlton took the penalty, but Tony Roberts guessed correctly and saved well to his right.

Three minutes later, a dreadful late tackle from Alan Kimble felled Carton, leading to the second penalty for the visitors.  This time, Wayne Curtis took the spot kick and wrong-footed Roberts to open the scoring with 31 minutes on the clock.

Four minutes later, Carlton did well to carry the ball into the box and shot low and to Roberts' (left) right.  Despite striking the upright, the ball rebounded into the net to leave the Daggers trailing by two goals.

Then came the first of two clear penalty shouts for the Daggers - Chris Moore burst into the box and, marked closely by a Morecambe defender appeared to be shaping up for an angled shot on goal, only to be forcibly shoved off the ball by the defender.  Despite the Daggers' appeals, the referee waved play-on.

The second half saw more of the same from the visitors.  Roberts did well to smother a Carlton shot from close range and breathed a sigh of relief when Terry McFlynn was unable to get his follow-up on target.

Then came the second penalty shout from the home side.  The ball was played into the box and as Danny Shipp (left) attempted to rise to head the ball, he was forcibly held-down but again the referee failed to be consistent and waved the appeals away.

Substitute Tony Perfect then set-up Chris Moore (right) and Moore made no mistake to curl the ball from 20 yards into the corner of the net leaving Mawson stranded.

Within a minute, the Daggers thought they had deservedly got back on level terms.  A great cross from substitute, Chris Piper was bet by Danny Shipp and, despite beating Mawson, his rocket header crashed off the upright.

For a while, the Daggers seemed to be coming more into the game, but their fightback didn't last very long.  First Hunter took a great long range shot that Roberts somehow tipped over at full stretch.

A few moments later, though, and it was game over - Keiron Walmsey crossed the ball to Ryan Sugden who made no mistake, blasting the ball home from close-range.

The defeat sees the Daggers slip down the table further and a somewhat inauspicious start for the caretaker management team.  One can only hope that the new manager can be installed as soon as possible and start the rebuilding of the team.
