the daggers voice
THIS is becoming the type of season that you just have to drink up and soak in before it's all over. Another win, another load of goals and another three points in our favour for what seems like the millionth time this season. It might have only been Southport, but I could swear that we're getting better and better with every passing week.
This latest victory is the fifth is a row, the first time we have done that for over five years and also our longest winning run of the season. And, though it might have seemed straight-forward, we had to come from behind away from home to beat a side playing their first game under a new manager who they would be keen to impress, and also overcoming the 'Manager of the Month curse' - it was never going to be an easy task.

The equaliser was an excellent free-kick from JMD that curled into the top-corner before the own goal which wouldn't have gone in had it not been for Okenabirhie's teasing cross and our pressure infront of goal. By the time Whitely had bagged our fourth I had a beaming smile, as I knew it would've been a proper 'Daggers' performance.
And so we are next in action on Saturday with the visit of lowly Guiseley before Bromley visit on Tuesday. Lincoln are in FA Cup action so this means we have two chances to take advantages and potentially be top of the table by the time the Imps next play a league fixture.
Okenabirhie then scored a fantastic goal as he swerved an effort from an improbable angle right into the opposite top corner; an outstanding finish. By the time W
