Avondale Rangers vs Dagenham United Res 

 With a squad of a bare 12, with a large number of key players missing, Dagenham got off to the worst possible start to the game as they gifted the hosts an early goal. 

Dagenham quickly rallied however and began to put on a passing masterclass as they dominated the possession and play, moving the ball about constantly and some superb interlinking play on show. 

The Daggers were in complete control and a solid defensive effort snuffed out any Avondale attacks that were mounted with ease. 

Midfielfer Luke Harrold was instrumental in the middle of the park and the heartbeat of the side that kept us ticking in the game. 

A brace soon followed for Jeff Nketia as he continues on his fine goal scoring for from last season.

The 3 points looked to be in the bag but a last bit of big pressure from Avondale whom threw players forward in abundance caught Dagenham out as a goal mouth scramble following an attempted penalty call, lead to the hosts nicking a point completely against the run of play. 

A frustrating afternoon to come away with just the draw but a point more then deserved and some great football on show and a massive platform to build on from.
