A double from Daggers most experienced player earned them a comfortable win at Bootham Crescent to move them up to 17th in the League Two table.

Jamie Cureton scored once in each half to make it back-to-back wins for Wayne Burnett’s team following their victory against Cheltenham Town at the end of January.

And although York City had lots of possession, they didn’t seem like scoring and whilst Cureton’s finishing proved the difference - it was a great team display.

Mark Cousins (8) - A clean sheet was the least Daggers number one deserved. He didn’t need to make any world class saves, but defended set pieces excellently.

Abu Ogogo (7) - The skipper slotted in at right back with no fuss. He didn’t take any risk and was solid throughout.

Scott Doe (8) - He made a number of blocks and was once more brilliant in the air. His partnership with Obileye continues to improve.

Ayo Obileye (8) - Not just another top drawer defensive display, but a wonderful chipped pass for Cureton’s second. He is showing his talent week in week out for Daggers.

Joe Widdowson (7) - Assured performance from left-back and he tried to get forward as well. He dealt well with everything that came his way.

Luke Howell (7) - He worked tirelessly on the right of midfield and defended extremely well. His return has made the team much more balanced.

Billy Bingham (8) - Terrific pass to get Cureton through for his opener and another classy display from midfielder. He is consistently shining.

Andre Boucaud (7) - Another strong showing from experienced ace after slow start and his partnership with Bingham is improving.

Ashley Hemmings (7) - He threatened every time he got on the ball, but wasn’t given much space to work with and he could have done better with first half chance.

Alex Jakubiak (7) - Youngster impressed in just his second start. He worked hard alongside Cureton and showed glimpses of his skill and agility.

Jamie Cureton (8) - A master class in finishing from the 39-year-old. His movement was phenomenal and he displayed great composure for both his goals. Man of the match performance.

Substitutions:

Daniel Carr, for Jakubiak 82.

Ashley Chambers, for Cureton 90.
