Daggers 2 Hereford 1 FULL TIME

Daggers win 2-1 thanks to Montgomery's last-minute volley

FULL TIME Daggers are right back in the play-off picture now and into seventh - all roads point to Darlington next Saturday.


A stunner from the winger too, hes done it again. Keeper punched a long free kick and Monty left footed, volleys it into the top corner from the edge of the box, what a goal.


A great roar goes up!

Corner for Daggers, its now or never.

Manset is quite a handful upfront, holds the ball up tremendously well and has a number of clever tricks and turns too.
