Barry Fuller scored the only goal of the game at the Cherry Red Records Stadium but Daggers were the stronger side in the second half and could easily have come away with a point had they been more clinical in front of goal.
Mark Cousins (7) - Daggers stopper made a couple of saves but none he wouldn’t expect to make. Another solid display.
Nathan Batt (7) - Right-back was very solid again and attacked well throughout the game.
Brian Saah (7) - Experienced defender dealt well with Matt Tubbs, won his headers and made some vital clearances.
Matt Partridge (8) - Youngster did exceptionally well against Adebayo Akinfenwa. The Dons forward won his fair share of high balls but Partridge coped with him excellently. Man of the match.
Ashley Hemmings (7) - An unfamiliar position for Hemmings but he performed impressively at left-back and whipped in some dangerous balls.
Ashley Chambers (7) – Energetic display by the winger but missed a great opportunity towards end of the match when he should have at least tested the keeper.
Luke Howell (6) - Busy performance from midfielder just returning from injury but couldn’t get on ball as much as he would like before being substituted.
Abu Ogogo (7) – Skipper missed fantastic first half opportunity but was leading from the front in terms of pressing and help his team force the Dons into mistakes.
Billy Bingham (7) – Another accomplished performance from the midfielder, again neat with his passing and whipped in some dangerous set pieces.
George Porter (8) – A constant menace throughout the match for his former team mates, whipped in various good balls but none were converted. Excellent display.
Ade Yusuff (6) – Forward struggled for much of the game, not given enough service in the first half but wasn’t at top of his game either.
Jamie Cureton, for Howell 66. (6) – Forward missed his kick when put through one-on-one with Dons keeper James Shea but he was very unlucky not to get a penalty when he was brought down in same incident by home goalie.
Rhys Murphy, for Yusuff 66. (7) – Good cameo again from striker returning from injury, whipped one good ball across the box and helped make Daggers more threatening.
Ayo Obileye, for Damian Batt 90.
