The Daggers drew again at home to a team that they should have beaten, this time 2-2 with Forest Green Rovers.
As predicted the Daggers stuck with the same side that travelled to Morecambe
with the exception of Chris Moore who returned in place of Tony Boot after
The home side had the worst of starts as Tony Roberts came for a long throw
only to have it headed out of his hands by a defender. The ball dropped to Matt Gadsby
who smashed it in to an untended net to score after just 4 minutes.
Daggers took a deep breath at the poor start and steamed back into the game,
Chris Moore (right) going close before they got immediately back on terms. A good run into the area by Glen Southam resulted in the midfielder squeezing a shot past Williams to level it on fifteen minutes.
It was not long before Rovers were ahead again on 27 minutes when Charlie
Griffin played Mark Beesley in one on one on Roberts and like several keepers
seem to have done this season, Robbo came so far then stopped, allowing an easy
chip into the empty net again.
Daggers piled forward again and had their best spell of the game in the last
fifteen minutes of the first half. Just when it looked like it was to be in vain
Craig Mackail-Smith's (left) run into the box saw him flattened by Richardson and Chris Moore scored from the spot just on half time to level it again.
such an entertaining first half it was all rather flat in the second 45 minutes.
The Daggers had the better of the second half without ever looking like getting a winner and right at the death Tony Roberts
(right) made up for his earlier ricks by making a marvellous save from Charlie Griffin.
So again it was just a point from a team below them for the Daggers at home,
coming on the back of similar disappointment at home to Farnborough and
Tamworth. The six points lost in those games would have them in eighth but as it
is the club lies 13th still and well adrift of the play off race.
