Dag & Red 0-0 Morecambe: Match Report

Dagenham and Morecambe set for replay after FA Cup stalemateDagenham & Redbridge and Morecambe must do it all again after their FA Cup first-round match ended 0-0 at Victoria Road.Anyone hoping for some cup magic was left disappointed in the first half, with chances few and far between.Perhaps the best of the half fell to Tom Barkhuizen in the 44th minute although he did not know too much about it.Home goalkeeper Mark Cousins went to clear his lines but instead hit Barkhuizen straight in the face as the ball trickled agonisingly wide.Barkhuizen went close again in the 60th minute, heading a corner towards goal but Cousins got down well to save.Daggers defender Justin Hoyte made a brilliant run forward in the 72nd minute and played a one-two on the edge of the area with Kyle Vassell.The right back then shot from just inside the box but saw his effort saved by Barry Roche with Jamie Cureton heading the rebound wide.But neither team could find a way through, necessitating the need for them to have a replay at the Globe Arena.
