Daggers v Macclesfield PLAYER RATINGS

DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE enjoyed a 3-1 victory over Macclesfield Town at the weekend, here is how we rated the players

DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE enjoyed a 3-1 victory over Macclesfield Town at the weekend, here is how we rated the players.

GK: Tony Roberts - 7 - although the ball kept low, he would have been disappointed to have been beaten from so far out for Macclesfield's goal. Did make an excellent save beforehand though, while after the break, all the action was down the other end.

RB: Abu Ogogo - 8 - showed his attacking skills by bursting forward and volleying in a peach of a goal as Daggers took the lead. Kept it tight defensively too and is turning into one of the unsung success stories of the season.

LB: Damien McCrory - 7 - not quite as good as he has been in recent games as his distribution in the first half was awry, with too many long balls going straight out of play. Made up for it in the second half though as Daggers threw everything at the visitors.


You may also want to watch:


CB: Mark Arber - 8 - in an open game, Macc would have had too many attempts on goal for the captain's liking in the first half, but once Daggers drew level, the defence had an altogether easier ride.

CB: Scott Doe - 8 - continues to impress with his tackling and grabbed an assist for Daggers equaliser, although whether he intended to or not is a different matter. When Antwi is fit, he is not going to find it easy to claim his place back.

Most Read

RW: Danny Green - 9 - STAR MAN - what more can you say about Green's performance. Scored two goals, the second a stunner, set up the second goal with an inch-perfect cross and gave the Macclesfield defence a torrid time. Without doubt enjoying his best spell of form since joining the club.

CM: - Yoann Folly - 8 - best showing from Yoann since he arrived at the club as especially in the second half, he imposed himself on the midfield battle. Won his headers and even got forward to crash a shot against the bar too.

CM: Marlon Pack - 8 - desperately unlucky to be taken off midway through the second half as he was just getting into his stride, winning possession and keeping things simple. Will be missed when he heads back to Portsmouth at the start of April.

LW: Peter Gain - 6 - recalled to the starting line-up but it was a mixed afternoon for Gain. Missed an open goal, got involved in some petulant handbags with Shaun Brisley to earn himself another booking, but as the game wore on, he became involved for the right reasons.

CF: Josh Scott - 8 - another muscular performance from Scott, who came as close as anyone to scoring with a header cleared off the line, and then a shot against the post. Never gives the defence a seconds rest.

CF: Paul Benson - 6 - finding it hard going at the moment as he missed three chances that normally he would have snapped up. Six games without a goal now and it looks like his confidence is starting to be affected.

SUBS

Jon Nurse (Pack 66) - 6 - can consider himself unfortunate to miss out after scoring against Lincoln in midweek and helped make the third goal with a typical lung-bursting sprint and cross from the left flank.

Phil Walsh (Scott 90) - no time for a rating, but yet again almost scored with his first touch, as his header was clawed away.

Anwar Uddin (Doe 90) - just time to stretch his legs, but excellent to see Anwar back and out on the pitch again after an injury-hit season.

SUBS NOT USED: Chris Lewington, Wes Thomas, Darren Currie, Tommy Tejan-Sie.
