Daggers 2 Grimsby 0 FULL TIME

Daggers earn a 2-0 win over Grimsby Town

FULL TIME Comfortable that, and it must be said that Grimsby look like they are on their way out of the Football League at this rate.

A clean sheet for the hosts though, their second in successive home games, meaning the play-off push is still firmly on.

Three minutes to be added here.

A mass exodus of Town fans now, they deserve better than this as their support has been excellent.

That should be game over now as Pack fed Green and the winger drove forward before firing low past Oxley into the bottom corner.

Daggers fluffed a wonderful 2 on 1 chance there as Benson and Nurse broke clear but Benson put his pass the wrong side of his partner and Oxley raced out to clear.

Nurse on for Scott here, nice moment for Nurse too as he is making his 100th appearance.

Straight swap with the Barbados international moving alongside Benson.

Off limps Sweeney now, with Coulson coming on.

Town starting to get better now, with Bore in particular impressive on the right flank. Daggers have looked solid so far though.

75MINS: Gain sends a shot off target and they could do with a second here.

Pack goes in the book for a late sliding challenge on Dean Sinclair, no arguments with that for the Pompey youngster.

Another sub for Town sees Wright off and Proudlock on.

Folly has caught Sweeney with a tackle here, but the Town man will run off the knock.

It was slightly surprising to take off Monty as his crosses were causing real danger today - lets see if Gain can do something similar.

Monty off now and doesnt look overly impressed with the decision, but that brings Folly on for his debut with Gain moving out to the left flank.

Grimsby have also brought on Akpro for Devitt as they look for a way back into this game.

60MINS: Somehow Daggers are not 2-0 up here as Monty found Scott and he burst through but wouldnt shoot, Pack had an effort blocked and then Gain measured his drive wide.

More action in that last minute than the whole of the first half.

Attendance is in, 2,190 and 306 away, an excellent turnout from the away side.

The goal is deserved for the amount of territory Daggers have enjoyed - they are eventually battering Grimsby into submission.

GOALFLASH - Scott makes it 1-0 to Daggers

And there it is, a moment of real quality from the hosts. McCrory picked the ball up, fed Monty and his first time cross was perfect allowing Scott to throw himself and see his diving header nestle in the bottom corner.

Both Benson and Doe have bandages on their heads now, its a look thats obviously catching.

Ogogo almost opened the scoring there, but his shot was blocked from close range, another corner, but cleared.

Back underway here, lets hope for a goal to liven things up.

HALF TIME 0-0 it is then and that has been a poor half of football, the ball spending ages of time in the air and no real quality either. Heres to better after the break.

Three minutes to be added, but Benson has a header fumbled clear by the keeper.

Impressive from Bore there as he actually shoots over the top of the away stand, I've not seen that happen here since the stand was erected.

Best chance of the game for Town though as Wright find Peacock completely clear, but he planted his header over.

Another cross from Green, easily plucked out of the sky by the keeper. Its not the easiest game on the eye this.

Yet another flagkick from Dagger, this is all they are playing for it seems.

35MINS: Scott is put into the right channel and wins yet another corner, must be their 10th of the game so far!

It came out as far as Gain and he curled it well, well over.

Doe bandaged up and back on now, so Daggers back to 11.

Grimsby getting a foothold in the game now, finally spending some time in the home sides half.

Roberts throws himself across goal for Sweeneys volley, but it was never going in.

30MINS: Close for Town there as Peacock glances a header wide, Doe has had to go off for some treatment here after a blow to the head. No movement on the Daggers bench yet, as Ogogo moves into central defence and Green goes to right back.

Fortunate for Grimsby there as Bore jumped too early for Ogogos cross and it hit his arm, but the referee gave nothing.

Daggers just denied another corner then when Town headed clear, but the official gave a goal kick.

Another Green corner caused plenty of problems and it was headed back across goal, but again smashed clear by the visotors.

Its not pretty this so far, but its proving fairly effective, just cant seem to create that clear-cut chance.

Excellent away following today too and they are in fine voice. Impressive as they havent won in the league since September!

20MINS: Its all Daggers here as Grimsby cant get out of their own half, Monty getting plenty of the ball, but so far his delivery hasn't been up to scratch.

Montgomery goes racing down the wing, but his cross is just cleared away from Benson - a slightly tepid affair so far as Oxley puts his clearance straight out.

The keeper then has his gloves warmed by Marlon Pack, but he parries clear.

10MINS: Daggers forcing plenty of crosses here, but as yet, they can't get the better of the first defender.

Roberts then just clattered McCrory and Tommy Wright in collecting the ball and McCrory is still down, looks a bit worrying. Thankfully he is alright though.

All underway here now and Danny Green gets a good crossing opportunity, but it is kicked clear.
