I got stuck for an hour on the M1 (some poor driver decided to tray and make a fourth lane, but the central reservation barrier was in the way), so got home, ate and it was time for Channel 5 footie.
OK, a positive. Who nominated Daggers for MotM?! They all played exceptionally well against a big and tall footballing side, some of whom were not going to let slip the opportunity for a muddy diving slide. At the back, it was great to see Ben Garratt return to the form we know he's capable off - instinctive and excellent positioning and command. George Ray is growing into his dual role of captain and defender like a spring flower. Basically, the defence and midfield were coherent and cohesive and worked together. Up front I would have given MotM equally to Bowery, Dagnall and Cooper.
On a very heavy pitch the team began to look very tired, but they kept going and the killer goal was a welcome surprise. Cooper's free kick and Dagnall's diving header must have come straight from Reaseheath: both wonderfully executed.
