Daggers 2 North Ferriby United 0

The only surprise about the latest victory was that it did not come by a bigger margin. 

The Daggers were in an totally different class to their newly promoted visitors and could have won by five or six. 

Oliver Hawkins, who scored the first goal, passed up two other fine chances to grab his third hat trick of the season. 

Several times Jordan Maguire-Drew set himself up to let fly with his left foot after moving inside. But on every occasion his final shot was too strong and apart from one effort that went over the crossbar never troubled keeper Rory Watson. 

The busy Watson made good saves from Hawkins and Matt Robinson as the vastly superior Daggers ran the show. 

Ferriby managed only two efforts that caused the Daggers any concerns on a one sided afternoon. 

A fine shot from Sam Topliss at the start of the half brought Daggers keeper Elliot Justham into rare action. 

Then an effort from Simon Russell whipped across the face of goal and outside the far post to act as a warning to John Still,s men. 

The Daggers took the lead in the 36th minute through Hawkins' ninth goal of the season. He did well to stretch back and plant in a header from a deep cross from the impressive Frankie Raymond

Luke Howell clinched the victory five minutes from time, netting a low cross from Fejiri Okenabirhie in the 85th minute just seconds after coming on as a sub.
