O's too strong for Daggers
The Daggers went out of the FA Cup at the First Round stage on Saturday, well beaten by a strong Orient side, but could well have made more of the chances that came their way and made it very different. 

The Daggers lined up with Lee Flynn at left back behind Anwar Uddin (right) showing more of his versatility, still missing Paul Bruce up the left. Chris Moore was considered only fit enough for the bench which meant Stuart Douglas and Craig Mackail-Smith got the nod up front.

The Daggers made a good start cheered on by noisy support forcing a series of early corners and pressing the O's back. Glen Southam (left) had a shot fly wide of Lee Harrison’s goal. 

Orient scored their first somewhat against the run of play then, when in the 11th minute Tim Cole’s headed clearance from a long throw dropped to Matt Lockwood well outside the area. His shot went through a crowded penalty box untouched and in at the left hand corner of Tony Roberts net to give the O's the lead.

The early goal meant that it was going to be an open match and it was never dull for the 4,155 present. Both teams had chances. For the home side first  Michael Simpson's shot was well saved by Tony Roberts, then Simpson and Lee Steele set up Andy Scott, who just missed the target. 

The Daggers really should have got level though when Mark Janney (right) burst into the penalty area and placed his shot at Harrison's left hand corner and the O's keeper just finger tipped it round the post. Lee Goodwin headed the subsequent corner from Lee Flynn just wide.

Orient always looked dangerous though despite he Daggers chances, with good passing football opening up space. They made it 2-0 on 38 minutes, Steele finding space on the left side of Daggers’ penalty area and his chipped cross found David Hunt at the far post, the header pinging in off the post. The home fans thought it was 3-0 just after when Lockwood's free kick was just over, ruffling the net on the rebound off the building work wall. Even so 2-0 slightly flattered the O's at half time.

The Daggers came out for the second half, desperate to find a way back into the game. Janney shot wide from ten yards out when he should have hit the target and then Stuart Douglas (left) was denied by a great point blank save by Harrison.

The Daggers adventure meant space for the O's going forward, and this eventually cost the visitors the game. with just less than an hour gone Jabo Ibehre caused havoc running at the Daggers back four and it could have been any one of three Orient players that could have scored but in the end Hunt slipped the ball to Wayne Carlisle to tap home at the far post.

To their credit the Daggers kept going forward even though it was now a forlorn hope to get back in the game. Moore (right) replaced Douglas and his more direct style of play gave the visitors extra options. Glen Southam should have had a penalty when his shot was charged down with an obvious use of hands as the Daggers piled forward still.

In the end the Daggers did win a spot kick when Craig Mackail-Smith, who buzzed around all afternoon, burst into the box from the right flank and was  crudely bundled over by Gabriel Zakuani. Chris Moore scored emphatically from the kick but the referee decided that a Dagger had encroached and ordered a retake. Moore took again and this time Harrison got a hand on the shot but still could not keep it out.

That left just seven minutes plus injury time and it was too little too late. The Daggers kept going forward up until the final whistle then tool the applause of their fans as the FA Cup dream ended for another season.

In the draw on Sunday afternoon the O's were given an away tie at Oldham Athletic in the second round and we wish them all the best for that one.
