Daggers 5 Shrews 0 FULL TIME

Daggers smash Shrewsbury for five at Victoria Road!

Three minutes of added on time here, this has been a cakewalk for Daggers in the second half, and Taiwo came closest to making it five moments ago, sending a volley in that was tipped over.

The home faithful have really enjoyed a treat here tonight and you can rest assured it wont be the away fans celebrating on the pitch after this game tonight!

80MINS: Daggers fans are loving this, you're getting sacked in the morning is the chant for Shrews boss Paul Simpson.

Dont think that will really happen, but the manager wouldnt have expected this scoreline when he turned up this evening.

GOALFLASH - It had to be, Benson again as he nods home Gains lovely cross from the left, all too easy for the striker, but he has been razor sharp this evening.

60MINS: Daggers have definitely taken their feet of the gas here, as Shrews are starting to look dangerous.

Scott has sent one effort across goal, but I wouldnt back against Still making some changes in a bit here, especially with another game against Notts County coming this weekend.

Riza has had to go off now after a hefty tackle from Griffiths, and Gray has come on for him.

50MINS: Roberts has just made a fine save from Langmead, while Green was back to head off his line before then too as Shrews try and mount a fightback.

Daggers dont want to get sloppy here, as a few goals will start to put the nerves amongst them once again.

James Curran has been in touch, good to hear from you - Green to get the next surely? I predict 5-1.

There must be more goals in this, but at the moment, its Shrews who are attacking!

Here we go again then, Shrews have made two changes here, Elder and Coughlan off for Riza and Leslie.

HALF TIME: Well, what a half of football that was, Daggers completely ripped their opponents apart with a stunning display.

Surely there can't be more goals after the break, can there?

GOALFLASH - This is just crazy! Benson gets on the end of Greens cross and heads home to make it four and complete his hat-trick!

There was a question mark as to whether he was climbing over Coughlan, but the goal stands, and Daggers are in dreamland now.

GOALFLASH - 3-0 now as Griffiths takes aim from just inside the box and rifles his shot into the far corner, a superb finish from the left back, who has finally ended his long drought!

30MINS: Daggers still two to the good here as they continue their clinical approach in front of goal.

Benson has had just two chances, and he has made it two goals, you would put your money on him completing his hat-trick before this game is out!

GOALFLASH: Benson makes it two! Sliding home a cross an effort by Scott, as he was left completely unmarked, not the best thing to do to a striker of Benson's quality.

GOALFLASH: Paul Benson nets with a lovely header from Gain's cross, and puts Daggers ahead against the side that he could so nearly have joined in the summer!

15MINS: Daggers have come close through Will Antwi, but the keeper tipped his header over.

Shrews look dangerous whenever Robinson is on the ball, but apart from an effort wide from Labadie, they havent tested Roberts yet.

Game hasnt really caught light yet, but hopefully we are one incident away from it really coming to life!

5MINS: Both sides have set their stalls out here as Robinson puts two shots off target early on, while Benson hits a low drive straight at Neal.

Its not surprising that both of the teams have already managed plenty of goals already this season - as Thurgood also puts a drive over the bar.

Mark my words, this one wont finish 0-0!

Players are out for the game and we are ready to get going any second now.
