Tayo at the Double.
Upminster B 1 vs. 3 Real Dagenham
Real Dagenham went into the game knowing if we win both our last games we would finish 2nd at less.
Its was a very nervous first 10 minutes for Real Dagenham with Upminster trying to use the down slope and wind to their advantage. But it was us who managed the first real shot when Gabor knocked the ball over Kenny head and has the ball drop Kenny hit a stunning volley which hit the left hand post and spin across goal, out for a goal kick for what would have been the best ever goal in a Real Dagenham top since the club was formed.
But it wasn’t long before we took the lead on 25 minutes when we hit Upminster on the break as Tayo kept the ball in on our right hand side just out side his own box and then ran up the line and play a great one two with Gabor and then made his way to the bye line and cut in and then hit a great powerful shot in a very tight angle that beat the keeper to make it 1 nil to Real Dagenham.
After we scored we had a few more half chances but just couldn’t put them away, and we were made to pay when in the 38th minute Upminster equalised when their midfield player hit a 25 yard shot which looked like it was going over only to dip at the last minute and hit the cross bar and with the Real Dagenham defence switched off for a second was enough to let the Upminster forward ran in and head the ball home.
The second half started and it was us who was looking for a winner but it looked not to be our day when Carl missed a couple of very good chances and we were getting caught off side nearly every time we went forward and the nervous started showing, but we kept pressing looking for a winner and it finally came in the 70 minute when Kenny played a great ball down the right to Tayo who cut in from the bye line and just like in the first half hit a great shot in a tight angle that beat the keeper to send Real Dagenham players and fans wild.
With Upminster not troubling the Real Dagenham defence we were happy to see out the game but in the 81st minute Carl got his reward for all his hard work when Eddie played a great thought ball and Carl ran onto it and then lifted the ball over the driving keeper to make it 3-1 in what was a great performance from Real Dagenham, and when news came through that Alevey lost we now know that if we win our last game of the season we will win the league.
Summery of the Game:
Well played Real Dagenham if was a very hard game but we have shown once again what a very good team we have and if we win our last game we win be champions which is what we deserve for a great season. Also a big well done to Tayo who picked up the big bottle of bubbly for 2 great goals and performance.
