Daggers End Season On A High
The Daggers yesterday won their final match of the 2003/04 season to finish on a high.

After a season filled with disappointments, it will come as a relief that the season is now over and the Daggers can look to rebuild under the stewardship of returning manager, John Still (left).

With Burton sitting in 13th place in the Nationwide Conference before the game, ahead of the Daggers on goal difference alone thanks to their point deduction earlier in the season, there was a little pride at stake, as well as the finishing positions potentially having a bearing on LDV Vans Trophy places next season.

The win will be the perfect tonic for John Still as it was his first match in charge back at the Daggers and will have helped him form an idea of who will be on the retained list over the Summer.

The visitors started brightly and could have taken the lead in the 12th minute through Mark Janney (right) but his long-range lob clattered against the crossbar with the home 'keeper stranded.

Tim Cole (left) then saw a powerful volley fly agonisingly just the wrong side of the post.

Burton then had a great chance when Sam Shilton's cross showed up the season-long frailties in the Daggers' defence and left Craig Dudley in space ten yards out.  With time to pick his spot, the Brewers' player should have done much better than to put his shot tamely wide.

The Daggers had two more good chances in the first half, with Ashley Vickers (right) seeing his header tipped over by Duke and Chris Moore seeing his shot blocked by the Brewers' custodian.

After the interval, the hosts seemed somewhat rejuvenated but it was the Daggers who broke the deadlock.  Chris Moore crossed the ball low and Duke got his hands to the ball, but couldn't prevent Leon Braithwaite forcing the ball into the net.

Ten minutes from time, John Howard appeared to be tripped from behind by Chris Piper (left) and shot wide of the goal.  The Burton appeals were waved away though and the Daggers take all three points back to Essex.

In reality, this match will probably be the last match that several of the current team will play in Dagenham & Redbridge colours.  It will be interesting to see how many and which of them feature in the opening game of next season.
