Daggers TV Curse Strikes Again
Just when it looked like the Daggers Jekyll and Hyde season was on the up again a live date on Sky Sports went horribly wrong at Underhill.

The Daggers understandably went with the experimental line up that had beaten Hereford in midweek but this time the result was very different as a good Barnet side, even without Conference top scorer Grazioli, opened the scoring within two minutes.

The normally dependable Tony Roberts will have to hold his hand up for the goal after Ian Hendon ran into the area and got a weak shot in on goal under pressure from a defender. Robbo let the ball slip under him somehow and the Daggers got off to the worst of starts.

Four minutes later it was even worse. Danny Foster looked every bit the new boy in the Daggers defence as Graham turned him all over the place and there were three Barnet players waiting for the cross when it came in, Strevens nodding home from three yards out.

The rest of the first half was pretty much one way traffic as Barnet swarmed all over the Daggers who failed to get a single attempt on goal in the first 45. Liam Hatch shot wide when well placed before being substituted after just 14 minutes. His replacement, Lee Roache then found himself one-on -one with Robbo who saved well with his legs.

The most controversial incident of the first half saw Ian Hendon clearly elbow Craig Mackail-Smith (left) across the throat but get away with a yellow card, the referee later saying he did not see the incident. Why the  yellow then Mr Thomlinson?

The Daggers regrouped a little after the half time break and began to press forward to try to get something out of the game. For twenty minutes or so it looked like they would. Bruce's free kick was just over, then Chris Moore was just smothered out when well placed. The Daggers did have the ball in the net just after this, Tim Cole's header falling to Mackail-Smith but he was clearly offside and it did not count.

Barnet then scored three in seven minutes to end the game as a contest and it was Ian Hendon, the man who should have been in the bath at the time who made the first of the three. His long through ball was perfect for Roache who scored into the bottom right of Roberts' goal.

Four minutes later Nick Bailey hit a screamer from 20 yards out into the top left corner to make it 4-0 before Lee Flynn was adjudged to have fouled Roache to give away a penalty, Flynn (right) booked when it could again have been red. That man Hendon took the spot kick and gave Roberts no chance at all.

The remaining quarter of an hour was really just going through the motions after that although Glen Southam did have a shot which went into the side netting.

So it is back to the drawing board for John Still and his team this morning.
