Thats it for Daggers then, a season that promised so much has unfortunately ended in defeat as the last play-off place has gone to Shrewsbury.

85MINS: Five minute for Daggers to do it then, plenty of nerves everywhere, can they get a goal!

Daggers pressurising their hosts when ever they can and they look far more like the side from earlier in the season mpw.

Can they do it though?

55MINS: Well, well, well, this game has taken another twist.

Seemingly dead and buried at half time, Benson rose like a salmon to head past Daniels at the far post, great finish.

Its now all the home side, and there are bound to be more goals in this!

GOALFLASH - Benson puts Daggers back in it rising high to head home at the far post

We're underway though now

HALF TIME Well, this wasnt how Daggers wanted to do it, but they now know they need at least two to get into the playoffs, and thats if Shrews dont score again.

Can it be done? Who knows.

35MINS: Well, this is really not looking good for the hosts now as they are 2-0 down and looking a shadow of their usual selves.

One good thing is they only need a draw to make the play-offs, though that looks a long way off right now.

GOALFLASH - Humphrey lobs Roberts to make it 2-0 to the Shrews and they now have one foot in the League Two play-offs!

20MINS: Well that wasnt what was on the cards, great cross by Humphrey and it left Holt with the chance to glance past Roberts.

As it stands, the play-offs beckon for Shrews and Daggers are going to miss out, but theres still plenty of time left.

Ritchie has had a goalbound shot blocked as the hosts try to get that vital goal.

GOALFLASH - Grant Holt opens the scoring for the visitors:

5MINS: Both teams looking like they are feeling a little tense here as neither team have fashioned a chance yet.

Daggers are biting into their challenges though and it promises to be a cracker today!
