One Eye On Next Week?
by Hardy on 08/11/2004

The Daggers lost 3-0 at home to Scarborough on Saturday, with a hint of the home side having one eye on next Saturday's FA Cup tie.

One eye on next week?
The Daggers lost 3-0 at home to Scarborough on Saturday, a scoreline that flatters the Seadogs a little but is testimony to their much better finishing. There was a hint of the home side having one eye on next Saturday's FA Cup tie at Orient too.

The Daggers lined up without Chris Moore once again, Tony Boot (right) starting alongside Craig Mackail-Smith up front with new signing Stuart Douglas on the bench. With Paul Bruce also missing following his knock last week Shane Blackett lined up at left midfield with Lee Flynn behind him.

The game was very open from the start. The first chance came when Craig Mackail-Smith outpaced the Scarborough defence from a through ball from Jake Leberl (left), but Leigh Walker in the Seadogs goal made a fine save. At the other end, Chris Senior blasted the ball over the bar from barely a couple of yards out when he looked bound to score.

Senior soon made up for his miss though. Neil Redfearn played in ex-Dagger loanee Robert Gill and although Bastock parried Gill's shot  Senior who had the easiest task to slam home the rebound.

The Daggers steamed back forward looking for a leveller and again it was Mackail-Smith that went closest, his shot flying just wide. Scarborough continued to catch the Daggers again and again though and Neil Redfearn got the second to cap a superb display by the veteran when he headed home Cryan's cross from the right from at least 15 yards out, the ball flying into the top corner

At half time Shane Blackett made way for Lee Goodwin (right), causing a major re-shuffle of personnel with Anwar Uddin moving up into midfield. The move tightened things up at the back a little, but at 2-0 down it was probably too late already. 

The second half was pretty even but the Daggers never really looked like pulling the deficit back. Craig Mackail-Smith and Glen Southam (left) both had opportunities but did not really make Walker work too hard. Way too often promising positions, particularly free kicks and corners, were pumped down Walker's throat.

On the hour new signing Stuart Douglas came on to replace Tony Boot. Douglas had a decent debut and showed he could play well with his back to goal bringing others into the game. He was the victim of a mystifying yellow card from our old friend Martin Yerby though.

With time running out Colin Cryan finally killed the game off in the 85th minute, heading home the Seadogs third from close range after Mark Hotte had won an initial header.

Not a great performance by the Daggers then, and they must improve before next week's FA Cup trip to Orient.
