York 0 Daggers 2

Jamie Cureton scored twice to give Daggers a second consecutive victory in League Two as they eased past York City at Bootham Crescent.

The experienced forward netted once in each half and resilient defending throughout ensured another clean sheet for Mark Cousins to delight boss Wayne Burnett.

Daggers captain Abu Ogogo returned to the starting team in place of Damian Batt, whilst Alex Jakubiak started against the Minstermen.

The host made the stronger start at Bootham Crescent and ventured forward more often than the visitors.

However they weren’t showing any real signs of quality and Burnett’s team made them pay in the 19th minute.

Billy Bingham passed into Cureton and he raced through on goal before composing himself and finding the net for his 10th goal of the campaign.

York pushed to equalise, but again couldn’t produce any telling moment of class until three minutes before half time when Wes Fletcher made space in the area and tested Mark Cousins.

Daggers broke from the following corner, though, and might have doubled their advantage but for a timely tackle from Malvind Bennings on Ashley Hemmings so the away teams lead stayed at just one before the break.

Minstermen came out after the interval determined, but was hit by a sucker punch when the away team doubled their advantage.

Ayo Obileye’s chipped pass found Cureton and he lobbed over the home keeper and into the net to strengthen the visitors hold on the match.

Russell Wilcox’s team were up against it now and might have found themselves three goals down had Bobby Olejnik not stopped Jakubiak’s goalbound shot.

The rebound came all the way out to Cureton who, from 30-yards, struck towards York’s goal, but it sailed just wide as he snJamie Cureton scored twice to give Daggers a second consecutive victory in League Two as they eased past York City at Bootham Crescent.
