Match Report

Pools scraped into the second round of the FA Cup in unconvincing fashion after being outplayed for much of the game against Conference outfit Dagenham and Redbridge. With Sunderland not wishing to have centre-half Neill Collins cup-tied, Martin Scott was forced into a defensive reshuffle. Darren Williams was switched to centre-half with Darren Craddock slotting in at right back. The only other change from the team that had beaten Gillingham saw Micahel Maidens replace Chris Llewellyn.

From the first whistle the visitors looked confident and willing to attack. They almost took the lead after ten minutes when Congo-born forward Tresor Kandol was only denied by the offside flag. If that was a warning, it was one that Pools failed to heed. A poor clearance by Williams was picked up by Craig Mackail-Smith and his cross was headed in by KANDOL. The goal finally shook Pools into action and the equaliser wasn`t long in coming. A deflected free kick arrived at the feet of Micky NELSON and the big centre-half rifled in a superb rising drive.

After the break the Conference side continued to take the game to their hosts. Pools were often reduced to counter-attacking football though they did have more quality to their play when they had the ball. Antony Sweeny and Eifion Williams both missed good chances to put Pools ahead. At the other end Dimi Konstantopoulos had to be on his toes to tip over a good shot from the edge of the area. The winning goal finally arrived when a replay was starting to look likely. Thomas BUTLER cut inside from the left, played a neat one-two with Williams and rolled the ball past Tony Roberts in the Daggers goal. There was still time for Pools to survive a loud penalty appeal when Darren Williams appeared to handle in the area, and it was a relieved home crowd that left Victoria Park at the final whistle. A win is a win.
