Ogogo's first too much for Bradford

Abu Ogogo's first goal for the club ensures Daggers defeat Bradford


Daggers 2 Bradford City 1


A SECOND HALF goal from full back Abu Ogogo was enough for Daggers to pick up fine victory over Bradford City at Victoria Road today.

The full back, who was outstanding all afternoon, slid in to net his first for the club after 72 minutes, when the ball broke loose in the Bradford box.

Victory was no more than Daggers deserved as they put in a first-class performance against their more illustrious opponents.

They were in front after just eight minutes when City keeper Simon Eastwood couldn’t gather Danny Green’s corner and Benson crashed the ball over the line from close range.

City were level midway through the half though when Michael Flynn volleyed a cracking effort past Tony Roberts from 25 yards.

Daggers had the perfect chance to retake the lead immediately, but after Jon Nurse was brought down in the box, Benson fired the spot kick woefully over the bar.

After the break Green hit the bar with a thunderous strike, while Roberts had to make a good save late on from Luke O'Brien as the hosts held on to seal an excellent triumph.
