Most Read

To their credit, Daggers havent thrown the towel in here, but they do seem to lack the quality to really test County.

Harris makes a double change here with Thomas and Currie on for Scott and Pack.

Westcarr off and Matthew Hamshaw on.

Benson missed a sitter there, putting a header straight at the keeper from a matter of yards. Daggers have kept taking the fight to their visitors, but that chance needed to go in if they are to taking something from the game.

57MINS: Even though they are 2-0 behind, Daggers looking quite decent at the moment and their heads havent dropped.

Roberts has made another glorious save though from Davies volley.

Green in the book after clattering Jackson, while the attendance has come through as 1,916 with 306 from County.

2-0 and it could be game over already - Davies curled a free kick into the box, it skimmed the head of Hughes and went into the corner. Who knows if it touched his head, but the striker has claimed the goal.

GOALFLASH - LEE HUGHES GETS THE SECOND

We're back underway here now - no changes for either side.

HALF TIME

Lovely finish that as Davies picked the ball up and curled a shot into the top corner, over the top of Roberts.

Beforehand, Doe had been caught out by a long ball forward, but got back to execute a fine sliding tackle, only for Davies to pick up the rebound and bend his shot home.

GOALFLASH - BEN DAVIES PUTS COUNTY 1-0 UP

42MINS: Excellent save from Roberts keeps the score goalless, using his legs to deny Hawley from close range.

Spiller is then caught in possession in midfield, allowing Westcarr to shoot over.

Arber now puts an acrobatic overhead volley past the post, while Scott also fizzed an effort over the bar. If County can keep onside, they will prove a danger with Hughes and Hawley upfront.

31MINS: Still no goals here, but Westcarr has an effort wide, while Daggers are still in front on territory, as they force another corner.

That final ball is lacking at the moment though, as Arber puts his header off target.

25MINS: Hughes puts another shot off target, while Daggers clearly havent got their shooting or crossing boots on at the moment, as they are struggling to get anything on target.

It must said though, the hosts are having all the pressure right now and are starting to crank up their tempo.

Scott doing his best here, sending a volley wide of the mark as Schmeichel flies across his goal, presumably for the cameras as it wasnt going in.

15MINS: First opportunity for the Daggers, as Scott heads over from Ogogo's cross.

Fairly quiet opening it must be said, not much to warm either sets of fans up at the moment.

7MINS: Big, big chance for the visitors there as Hughes is adjudged onside and one on one with Roberts, drills his shot the wrong side of the post.

A huge let off for Daggers there, as the striker is usually lethal in that situation.

A host of corners for Daggers here, can they make it count though? No is the answer.

And we're underway here - Sven has taken his place and there is a whole host of press here tonight with Notts County featuring heavily in the news right now.
