GOALFLASH Benson makes it 2-0 with a cool finish after a good ball from Strevens.
70MINS: Bradford thought they had a pen then, but Mullen was penalised for backing into Magnus.

60MINS: What a strike that was from Saunders then!

After that, Griffiths then hit the bar with a header, and the Daggers fans can sense victory at the moment!
GOALFLASH - Sam Saunders puts Daggers ahead with a belter from just inside the box!
50MINS: Daggers lucky to be level here as Thorne heades home, but Mullen is penalised for a foul on Button.
The new keeper did look tentative though, so Bradford might start to test him a little more now.
Here we go again then
HALF TIME: Goalless here as both sets of players troop off.
Its been a tenacious half theres no doubt, hopefully there will be some more goalmouth action to come though.
35MINS: Its a battle here, no doubt about it.
Daggers are struggling with the deliveries forward, as they keep going out of play, while Bradford are always threatening in wide positions.
Strevens had one header at the keeper, while Gain's fierce drive was cleared off the line by Arnison.
Button still hasnt had to make a save of note yet, something that Bradford will be disappointed with.
25MINS: Button almost got on the scoresheet then! But is hefty goalkick was collected by his opposite number.
Bradford are starting to turn up pressure here with Thorne sending a header over, as has Brandon.
Daggers need to be wary, as they arent going to be as wasteful all the time.
15MINS: Turning into quite a scrappy affair at the moment, with neither side creating any genuine chances.
Thorne did have the ball in the net for Bradford, but was offside, while Daggers have seen a few efforts from Taiwo charged down, but thats about it!
5MINS: Its the visitors who have started far stronger here.
Button was tested in the opening stages, witha deep cross that he took at the second attempt after a collision with Magnus.
His kicking looks good though, but we'll know more as the game progresses.
