Penalty shout for Daggers
Myles Weston is through on goal, Montgomery comes out and the two collide. You’ve seen them given but Weston appeared to be looking for it.
Gets a header on target but it is straight at Justham. Good cross from McCourt. 20 to go, everything is there for Town but the final finish.
What a chance!
Great hold-up play by Rowe who then finds Mandeville, he plays Taylor in on goal but he blazes over the bar. Head in hands moment. 69 played, 1-1.
Second Town sub - 66 mins
Weston off, McCourt on.
Rowe clips a lovely ball over the top of the Daggers’ defence, Weston runs from deep and beats the offside trap, he is one-on-one but he takes a bad touch and Justham rushes out and blocks it. Big chance.
An hour gone
First Town sub - 58
Clarke off, Rowley on.
Town enjoying some nice possession but no chances of note so far in this half.
