Bruce spectacular gives Daggers the points
The Daggers took a deserved three point haul from the visit of Carlisle united on Saturday despite being down to the bare bones in the squad through injury and suspension.

The loss of in-form Ashley Vickers, banned after reaching five yellows, meant John Still had a dilemma whether to pull Lee Goodwin back from midfield to central defence and fill the gap left by Jake Leberl's second game suspended in some way. In the end the manager plumped for Shane Blackett (right) alongside Anni Uddin to make it the youngest back four that Daggers fans have seen for many a year, with an average age of around 21.

Blackett showed early nerves but settled in well, and Lee Goodwin also had a good game in midfield where his defensive abilities broke up many Cumbrian attacks. Up front Tony Boot started alongside Chris Moore with Craig Mackail-Smith, rumoured to be missing for this one altogether, on the bench. 

The first half was fought out mainly in midfield with not to many chances falling to either team. Tony Boot's snap shot flew just wide and Lee Goodwin (left) had Glennon scrambling with a shot from distance in the Daggers two best efforts in the first 45 minutes. Carlisle had the odd chance or two as well and Tony Roberts was forced to save well from Paul Arnison and Peter Murphy.

In the second half the Daggers turned up the heat a little on a distinctly average Carlisle side. They almost took the lead early on when a long throw from Scott Griffiths (right), who gets real distance despite his lack of apparent strength, was flicked on by Goodwin. The touch seemed to surprise Matt Glennon who parried but had to be grateful for Chris Lumsdon who cleared off the line. 

It was becoming more and more one way traffic just before the goal that proved the winner. A throw in again proved caused all sorts of problems in the Carlisle defence and after some neat passing the ball fell to Paul Bruce inside the box. Brucey swung his right foot at it and the ball screamed into the top corner.

The goal forced Carlisle to chase the game and opened up all sorts of space that had been lacking up to that point. John Still sent on Craig Mackail-Smith to exploit the space with his pace and Carlisle pushed on their top scorer Karl Hawley in an effort to find an equaliser.

Suddenly a previously tight game became one where both teams piled forward. The Daggers survived several decent chances for the visitors, Danny Foster (left) in particular being forced into a couple of last ditch clearances. At the other end Mackail-Smith belied any injury worries by chasing everything with real energy and Chris Moore should probably have wrapped the game up but was denied by Glennon's save.

The final chance fell to United's David Beharrall who headed tamely over from a corner and it was three more points to the Daggers in their chase for a play off spot.

With no game next week due to Morecambe's participation in the FA Trophy 5th round, John Still now has a bit of space to get a few injuries straightened out and head into the final lap of the season with renewed confidence.

The three points take the Daggers up just one place to 11th, but they remain just four points off second place prior to tonight's televised game at Crawley.
