Daggers 1 Whitehawk 1

Daggers will have to wait to try and book their place of the third round of the Emirates FA Cup following a 1-1 draw with Whitehawk.

The hosts made four changes from their previous match at Morecabe with Mark Cousins, Jodi Jones, Nyron Nosworthy and Kyle Vassell all recalled.
Daggers took a swift lead in the game when evergreen frontman Jamie Cureton struck in the fifth minute.
Cureton was found in the box by Josh Passley and turned his man brilliantly before firing home.
Four minutes later and Joss Labadie drilled a free kick at the top right corner from 30 yards which needed to be turned over by Hawks keeper Craig Ross.
The hosts looked in control in the opening 25 minutes but Whitehawk began to grow into the game.
Hawks’ first shot on target came in the 35th minute when Danny Mills fired a powerful effort from 25 yards that was well saved by Cousins.
Daggers went close to conceding in the 40th minute when Arnaud Mendy’s header was ruled out for offside just seconds after Dean Leacock headed onto the bar.
The hosts continued to be on the back foot during the second half and rarely looked like adding to their lead.
Whitehawk fans, to their credit, continued singing loudly to try to urge their team to an equaliser, which came deep into injury time when Jordan Rose won a header after consistent pressure in the Daggers third.
Daggers: Cousins; Passley, Nosworthy, Dikamona, Connors; Labadie, Boucaud, Dunne; Jones, Cureton (Doidge 90+3), Vassell (Chambers 80)
Unused subs: O’Brien, Doidge, Raymond, Pask, Obileye, Hoyte
Attendance: 1,983 (including 536 Whitehawk fans)
