George Sessions provides player ratings following the 2-0 win against Plymouth Argyle
Wayne Burnett’s team put in their best performance of the season to beat play-off hopefuls Plymouth Argyle yesterday night.
Abu Ogogo gave them a deserved lead when he tapped home in the 30th minute and Jamie Cureton ensured their victory with a lob two minutes from time.
They could have won by even more though as they created numerous opportunities against the Pilgrims, but two was enough to give Daggers and their supporters a wonderful win to celebrate.
Mark Cousins (7) – Little to do all, but he took catches well and was a calming presence on the back four. He also handled the jeers from the Argyle fans well.
Abu Ogogo (9) – Superb display from the captain and he capped it off with decisive opening goal. He came from nowhere to score and was excellent all evening.
Scott Doe (9) – Experienced defender was back to his best and did brilliantly against Reuben Reid and Plymouth’s other attacking threats. Top drawer.
Ayo Obileye (7) – A few shaky moments, but a strong showing from the Charlton Athletic loanee and his clearances were very important.
Joe Widdowson (9) – A really good display by the left-back, potentially his best in Daggers colours. He defended very well and his partnership with Ashley Hemmings is developing nicely.
Luke Howell (8) – He continues to do a terrific job for the team on the right and has a good understanding with Ogogo. Despite being out wide, he always comes inside to good effect. Excellent once again.
Billy Bingham (9) – Beautiful ball through for Cureton’s goal capped another exceptional performance from the midfielder. He passed the ball brilliantly and was close to man of the match.
Andre Boucaud (8) – He tired towards the end, but his composure and confidence on the ball for the majority of the match massively impacted his team mates. A very class match from Trinidad and Tobago man.
Ashley Hemmings (8) – He gave his full back a torrid time and was back to his best after a lacklustre showing on Saturday, but should have found the net.
Ashley Chambers (8) – Returned to the starting team and worked extremely hard. He played huge part in making the first goal and justified his selection with a top display.
Jamie Cureton (9) – Another unbelievable performance from the 39-year-old. His work rate was phenomenal. He nearly scored one of the goals of the season in 86th minute, fortunately he made up for that miss by scoring Daggers second. Man of the match for running himself into the ground.
Daniel Carr, for Chambers 75. (6) – He wasn’t given much time to make an impression, but the young forward did well during his cameo.
Damian Batt, for Bingham 90.
Joss Labadie, for Boucaud 90.
