Slough crashed to their second league defeat of the season as they were comprehensively beaten by Dagenham at Victoria Road, extending the Rebels run without a win up to three games.

The first half was the better half for entertainment value, although the home team controlled most of the game the visitors had some interesting moments.

The Slough defence did look somewhat inconsistent at times and from this came the Daggers second goal, Paul Cobb picking up on a indecisive central defence and slotting it through to Danny Shipp who calmly placed past the keeper.

Shipp had an easier chance earlier in the 9th minute when he chose a glory volley at an open goal when he should have picked his place.

Paul Cobb did better from a similar position on the 19th minute after good build up work. The ball fell to his feet 8 yards out from the far post, Cobb looked up and place the ball perfectly out of the keepers reach.

Slough Town had a player sent off and it was after this that they took control, with a quite industrious 10 minutes.

The Daggers weathered the storm and 3 minutes into time added on David Pratt tried a chip shot from 35 yards, this was after seeing the keeper off his line, only to hit the top netting.

Slough had a fair amount of possession in the first 15 minutes of the second half but being a man short they were always going to be punished.

It was the Daggers that were making the breaks from Slough attacks and it should have been the other way round.

Cobb was put clear through but Paul Wilkerson was quickly out to narrow the angle and made a good save.

Again after another Slough offensive the ball broke to Mark Janney who put Cobb into a position where he was able to lay an perfect ball for Howard to run onto and shoot but it went wide.

Cobb's second and the Daggers third is a candidate for the goal of the season. The ball was being worked well around the visitors penalty area when out of the blue it fell into Paul's path. It was struck so sweetly and with ferocity from 20 yards and arrived in the back of the net a split second later.

Cobb had a couple of more efforts before the end of the game, It would have been great to see him get his first hat-trick, but it was not to be.
