The Daggers today struggled to a 1-1 draw with Barnet at The London Borough Of Barking And Dagenham Stadium.
After dominating the first few minutes of the match and having gone close through Ross Smith and Sam Saunders, the Daggers took the lead when Ben Strevens capitalised on a defensive mix-up to somehow get a toe onto the ball and prod it into the net in the 20th minute.
The Daggers pressed for a second, but the visitors worked their way back into the game and should have equalised on a number of occasions but a mixture of excellent play from Tony Roberts and poor finishing kept the Bees out. On too many occasions, the Daggers negatively kept all their players behind the ball and clearances found the opposition players.
In the third minute of injury time at the end of the first half, Anthony Thomas unleashed a fierce strike that eluded everyone and actually burst the back of the net to level the scores.
The second half was more even but, in reality, the Daggers were always second best and the better chances fell to the visitors.
With time running out, Roberts was again the hero, making a number of saves to keep the scores level.
The Daggers will need to play much better than this if they are to remain clear of the relegation places come the end of the season.
