Big Match Review - Morecambe 1 Dagenham 0

League Two
Morecambe 1-0 Dagenham & Redbridge
Saturday April 25, Christie Park, (Att: 2,100)

A Darren Moss goal four minutes from time moved Morecambe up to 8th in Leage Two as they earned a crucial win over play-off rivals Dagenham & Redbridge.

The Shrimps had started the better of the two teams, and were unfortunate not to take the lead in the first half when Paul Mullin's volley struck the top of the bar.

With the visitors struggling to make an impact going forwards, Morecambe continued to look for a winner.

Garry Hunter was also denied by the woodwork and, when Stewart Drummond missed a good chance, it appeared Sammy McIlroy's team were going to be denied.

However, with time running out, the Daggers failed to clear a corner and the ball dropped to Moss on the edge of the area to launch a spectacular left-footed volley into the top corner.

It could prove to be a crucial first goal for the club from the defender, as they move level on points with 7th placed Port Vale.

For John Still's men, they must hope they won't fall at the final hurdle for a second successive season.
