Daggers Drop To 5th
The Daggers today dropped to fifth in the table following a poor performance against a solid Crawley Town side which saw the first Conference defeat of the season.

John Still shuffled his pack a little for this one. With the return of Ashley Vickers from suspension any tough decisions at the back were made simple by Tim Cole's suspension instead following his red mist moment at the weekend. The midfield stayed as was while up front it was a first start for Craig Mackail-Smith (right), John Taylor dropping to the bench. Jack Midson, coming of a four match ban from last season was also on the bench in place of Scott Griffiths.

Crawley started better and looked to have taken an early lead when ex-Charlton striker Charlie Macdonald had the ball in the Daggers net, only to see his effort ruled offside.

The Daggers had to fight a largely rearguard action throughout the first half but did have chances. Lee Flynnís (left) excellent cross from the left reached Mark Janney who missed the target when he should really have done better. Then Flynn's free-kick left Phil Smith in the Crawley goal in no-mans land and the ball reached Ashley Vickers but his header hit the crossbar and went over.

The home side responded best to the half time cuppa scored within three minutes of the restart. Neil Jenkins burst through the Daggers defence with a powerful run and found Macdonald whose shot beat Roberts into the corner.

The Daggers had a great chance to pull back level ten minutes later when Lee Goodwin got onto the end of a Glen Southam (right) cross only to see his header rebound off the post and safe.

Just after this Crawley made the game safe when Jenkins corner found Ryan Palmer and his header gave Roberts no chance.

Despite there being 30 minutes left in the game it was all over bar the shouting. While Chris Moore did have one reasonable chance it was all Crawley in the closing stages and it was only really Tony Roberts (left) in the Daggers goal that kept it at 2-0.

The game ended with the Daggers well beaten after a very disappointing August Bank Holiday weekend. Ten points from five games is a reasonable return, but the team needs to start to click soon or it will start to slip off the pace even at this early stage of the season.

The new leaders are Barnet who won at Canvey Island and the Daggers slip down to fifth heading a pack of clubs on ten points thanks to their goal difference.
