In their first match of 2010, Daggers, who were once again led by Terry Harris and Wayne Burnett in the absence of ill manager John Still, gave a debut to Marlon Pack, while Abu Ogogo came in at right back.

The visitors looked threatening and missed a glorious chance through Steven Schumacher, but Daggers were in front when Scott glanced a header high into the net from a Green cross on 35 minutes.
