What a difference seven months makes!

The Daggers beat Hereford United at home just over seven months after being humiliated on live TV in the club's last meeting in what is their best performance so far this season.

John Still made two changes to the side, Ashley Vickers and Mark Janney returned while Danny Foster kept his place at right-back. The shape of the side changed though, Anwar Uddin pushing up into midfield for the suspended Jake Leberl, Lee Flynn playing left back and Mackail-Smith having a free role behind Chris Moore.

Their is very little to say about the first half, the first real chance falling to Chris Moore on the half hour, when a cross from Mark Janney (right) found him at the far post, only for Andrew Tretton to deny what would have been a certain goal. For Hereford David Brown missed his side's best chance as he shot wide of Tony Roberts' goal after being found by Danny Williams.

If the first half had been pretty dull the second certainly made up for it. It took just two minutes for Hereford to take the lead,  Mark Robinson's low cross from the right turned home by veteran striker Lee Mills. The goal came from a counter attack after Chris Moore (left) should have put the Daggers ahead.

The Daggers responded well to the setback though and Mackail-Smith had two great opportunities to equalise before he eventually did on 57 minutes. First he blazed over with just the keeper to beat then a deflected shot went just wide. Just when the Daggers may have thought it wasn't to be their day   Mackail-Smith did get on the scoresheet with his third attempt. Paul Bruce's corner caused mayhem in the Hereford defence and Anwar Uddin smashed the ball towards Gould's goal, the rebound leaving Mackail-Smith to finish from a couple of yards out.

Mills was through one-on one with Roberts shortly after this but dallied, letting Daggers skipper Tim Cole (right) get a superb last ditch tackle in. From that point it was one way traffic though, the Daggers firmly on top. Chris Moore put them ahead on 64 minutes, for once a deflection going the Daggers way the ball coming off Tretton and beating Gould.

Tim Cole nearly headed a third from another Bruce corner, one of eighteen the Daggers had on the night.  Mackail-Smith (left) should have scored again on 80 minutes but sliced his shot wide with only the keeper to beat. He did make the score a more realistic reflection of the game in injury time though, his pace Mackail-Smith's speed that again took him past a couple of defenders before an excellent finish.

A great result for the Daggers which lifts them to 11th and exacts some measure of revenge for last season's record defeat by the Bulls.
