Woking 1 Daggers 3

The Daggers finally win for the third consecutive time in the League since 2010, thanks to three goals within the first twenty minutes of the game.

It was Craig Robson who opened the score for the Daggers, minutes later Jordan Maguire-Drew scored the second. Feijire Okenabirhe scored the third and final goal for the Daggers.

Woking got a consolation goal in the opening minutes of the second half, through  Anthony Edgar.

Woking came very close to scoring within the first five minutes of the game, after a clever ball found Charlie Penny, but he was unable to keep his shot on target.

Nevertheless, the first goal of the game came for the Daggers in the 11th minute, Robson’s powerful header from a Luke Guttridge corner, was too difficult to stop for the Woking goal stopper.

17 minutes into the game and the Daggers were already two goals up, it was Maguire-Drew who dribbled his way into the box and curled it into the top corner.

Maguire-Drew then got awarded a penalty in the 19th minute. Okenabirhie then scored the third goal for the Daggers, straight after missing the actual penalty.

Nearly looked like the fourth for the Daggers in the 30th minute, Maguire-Drew curled a free kick, which just went over Michael Poke’s cross bar.

Minutes before the half time whistle, Robinson hit the ball sweetly on the volley from 35 yards, but it ended up straight at the hands of Poke.

Woking got one back in the opening minutes of the second half, through Anthony Edgar’s shot from distance.

Great defending from Robson in the 75th minute as Chigozie Ugwu had a clear sight on goal.

In the space of seven minutes, John Still made two substitutions taking off Maguire-Drew and Luke Guttridge for Corey Whitely and Josh Staunton.

The Daggers defended well till the end, finishing the match 1-3 and taking three points, which push the Daggers into second place in the Vanarama National League. Next up is Wrexham A.F.C at home on the 27th of August.
