Wayne Burnett’s side extended their unbeaten run to five matches at Globe Arena after scoring early on in both halves.

Luke Howell netted after 18 seconds before Andy Fleming equalised for Morecambe to make it all square at the break.

But Ayo Obileye and Jamie Cureton tapped home in the 48th and 52nd minute to give Daggers the ascendancy.

Jack Redshaw pulled one back for the Shrimps in stoppage time, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Burnett’s team taking all three points.

Mark Cousins (6) – Daggers keeper made an excellent save to ensure it was level at half time, but would have been disappointed with his part in the opener.

Abu Ogogo (7) – Another strong performance from the skipper, despite not playing in midfield where he would like to be playing.

Scott Doe (7) – Top performance again from the central defender, who made his 250th appearance for the club. He also followed his managers orders by not fouling Redshaw inside the box.

Ayo Obileye (7) – The youngster was delighted to score his first professional goal and defended strongly for the majority of the match again.

Joe Widdowson (7) – He is looking good at left-back and improving, but was fortunate not to get punished for holding onto some Morecambe players from set pieces.

Luke Howell (8) – The midfielder was excellent in the first half in particular and scored a great goal. He worked tirelessly for the team again and makes the balance of the side perfect.

Billy Bingham (8) – Another strong performance and he won numerous tackles and passed the ball around with great assurance. He was one of a number of good Daggers performers against Morecambe, but just gets the edge for man of the match.

Andre Boucaud (7) – He got tired in the second period, but kept the ball well for the majority of the match and drifted into decent attacking positions as well.

Ashley Hemmings (8) – Wide man was involved in the opener and Daggers third and looked threatening whenever he was on the ball. His form is becoming more consistent now.

Jamie Cureton (8) – Wonderful movement throughout and smart finish for his goal, but he will be kicking himself at missing another nine minutes from time.

Alex Jakubiak (7) – Youngster has deservedly earned a starting place in the team and continues to get himself into good positions, but often picks a pass rather than go for goal himself.

Substitutes:

Ade Yusuff, for Jakubiak 81.

Jack Connors, for Boucaud 90.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
