The Daggers took the lead inside the first quarter of an hour through Matty Cash, but the Gas was able to equalise through Billy Bodin and win in the final seconds of the match.

John Still made two changes to the Daggers side, Andre Boucaud returned to the starting line-up  and Ashley Chambers came in for Jamie Cureton.

Bristol Rovers came very close to scoring the opener in a matter of seconds, Mark Cousins did very well to deny Matty Taylor’s strike.

The goal came for the Daggers in the 12th minute, Christian Doidge found Matty Cash with an over the top through ball, Cash then did very well to slot it into the bottom right of Steve Mildenhall’s goal.

15 minutes into the game and the Daggers lost the lead through Billy Bodin, who wriggled his way inside the box and put it past Cousins.

The Gas’ nearly made it two, Cristian Montano’s cross found Rory Gaffney heading it just wide. Seconds later Monatno came very close, but the shot flew high over the crossbar.

Boucaud decided to test the keeper from 25 yards out, the shot ended up curling inches off the post. Moments later, Muldoon attempted a shot from outside the box, Mildenhall did enough to put it out for corner.

Cousins did very well to deny the Gas from taking the lead twice in a matter of minutes, Bodin’s thunderous strike was tipped over and denied Montano from scoring in an one on one effort.
There was a half time substitution for the Daggers as Clevid Dikamona came off for Jack Connors, resulting into Pennell moving into a central role.

Taylor’s shot from outside the box resulted in it being deflected and coming off the top of the cross bar.

Ashley Chambers was then taken off for Jamie Cureton in the 75th minute, shortly after Ellis Harrison came in from the edge of the box, but Cousins once again did very well to push it out for a corner.

Christian Doidge’s tight angled shot was cleared off the line in the 84th minute, the Gas was very close from scoring after Cousins produced a great save.

John Still made his final substitution by bringing on Oliver Hawkins for Andre Boucaud. Taylor was unable to give the home side the victory after shooting wide from centre of the box.
