George Sessions provides player ratings following the 2-0 home defeat to Stevenage
Stevenage scored twice in the second half through Charlie Lee and Chris Whelpdale at Victoria Road to consign Daggers to another home loss.
It means they end their home campaign for 2014 with a 2-0 defeat and they were booed off by their supporters at the full time whistle.
Mark Cousins (6) – Not his best day at the office, his kicking wasn’t great and Stevenage fans really got on his back in second half. He did make great save straight after break, though.
Damian Batt (6) – Batt started the game quite well and put a terrific ball into the box early on, which was unlucky not to provide the opening goal. But couldn’t prevent Daggers losing.
Ayo Obileye (5) – A second shaky display in a row for the youngster. He struggled to win the ball in the air and looked nervous in possession. Subbed early in second half.
Scott Doe (8) – Colossal at times for Daggers at heart of defence and really stood head and shoulders above any home player on the pitch. Won numerous headers and cleared almost everything that came his way.
Brian Saah (6) – He looked slow in the first half to react to certain situations and although he improved, not up to his usual standards.
Joe Widdowson (6) – Booked for professional foul midway from first period, but did deliver some good balls into the box.
Billy Bingham (6) – He tried to get things going for Daggers, but couldn’t deliver enough decisive pass. However, one of the best home performers.
Luke Howell (6) – Excellent opening 25 minutes from midfield, showed great urgency when pressing and got into the box. But couldn’t get better of opposite number Dean Parrett in the end.
Ashley Chambers (5) – A really good driving run in first half, but too many times he didn’t play the ball quick enough or played it too quick. He needs to be better in the final third.
Patrick Agyemang (5) – Another extremely disappointing performance from the 34-year-old. He didn’t hold the ball well enough up front and on countless occasions ignored the opportunity to cross. His substition was cheered by some Daggers supporters.
Rhys Murphy (6) – A few encouraging signs for Murphy, making his first league start since March 1. He took a little bit too long with a couple of efforts, but showed great movement.
George Porter (6) – He did well when he came on after 54 minutes and tried to get a couple of decent deliveries into the Stevenage penalty area.
Ashley Hemmings (6) – Daggers conceded seconds after he came on so couldn’t make much of an impression.
Alex Jakubiak (6) – Same as Hemmings, second Stevenage goal ensured his introduction couldn’t do much for the home side.
