George Sessions provides player ratings following the 4-2 victory over Carlisle United
Ashley Chambers scored a brace to inspire Wayne Burnett’s team to end their seven-match run without a win and pick up just a third home success of the season.
Billy Bingham levelled the scores after Derek Asamoah’s 16th minute goal before Chambers put Daggers ahead and Jamie Cureton extended the lead before the break.
Chambers completed his brace a minute after half time before Cureton hit the bar with a penalty and although Danny Grainger pulled one back for Carlisle, Burnett’s men earned a deserved three points.
Mark Cousins (7) – Very little for the Daggers number one to do apart from pick the ball out of his net twice. Carlisle never forced him into a meaningful save.
Damian Batt (7) – It seemed like he was pushed a little further up the pitch into a wing-back position and he thrived with the extra responsibility going forward – involved in various moves.
Ayo Obileye (7) – Impressive home debut from the Charlton Athletic youngster, won his fair share of aerials battles and made an astonishing clearance in the second half when the Cumbrians were increasing the pressure.
Scott Doe (8) – Excellent display from the experienced defender. He showed why he deserves to be starting each week with commanding display, although beaten easily for first goal.
Brian Saah (7) – Composed performance by Saah, made various important clearances and was part of a solid back three.
Ashley Hemmings (7) – Good again from Hemmings in an unfamiliar position, whipped in several good balls and defended well.
Billy Bingham (8) – Tidy performance again from midfielder and his equaliser proved to be the spark Daggers needed. Great fight throughout the match.
Joss Labadie (7) – He was as competitive as ever, winning and fighting for every ball in the middle of the park and helped the hosts keep a good tempo.
Ashley Chambers (9) – Even before Carlisle’s opener he appeared to be thriving in position behind the forwards, time after time picked the ball up in space and crucially made the most of his opportunities. Man of the match.
Ade Yusuff (8) – No goals for the forward but a performance of superb determination and desire. Yusuff battled for everything and played his part in two of the goals.
Jamie Cureton (8) – Excellent display by the experienced striker, scored one and played his part in two others. Missed a penalty but can be excused for that after this performance.
George Porter, for Yusuff 84.
Andre Boucaud, for Bingham 90.
Christian Doidge, for Cureton 90.
