Posted on 20th August 2023
Mehmet Karsanti provided a summary of the action from York Road.
The Magpies picked up their first home win of the season, as they beat Essex side Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 at York Road. Alan Devonshire made one change to his side following the defeat against Hartlepool on Tuesday night, as Ashley Nathaniel-George was not included in the matchday squad and was replaced by Casey Pettit in the starting line-up.
It took until 20 minutes on the clock for a half chance to be seen after a dangerous cross from Jayden Mitchell-Lawson into the 6-yard area was cleared away for a corner from the Dagenham defence.
Minutes after, The Magpies found space on the edge of the 18-yard box with Reece Smith after receiving the ball from Jayden Mitchell-Lawson, but the effort was seen blocked by the Dagenham defence.
Another chance from the edge of the 18-yard box fell to the feet of Casey Pettit just before halftime but his effort couldn’t test Dagenham goalkeeper Elliot Justham.
The Daggers found their first chance after a loose touch from Innih Effiong managed to find Sam Ling on the right-hand side of the box, but he saw his effort blaze over the crossbar.

The first chance of the second half fell the visitor’s way after a curling effort from Innih Effiong who tried to find the top right corner went just wide.
The Magpies finally found the opener 15 minutes into the second half, after a great run by Jayden Mitchell-Lawson on the right side who played a cross into the box which found Reece Smith, who curled it into the top right corner to give Maidenhead the lead.
Maidenhead continued their pressure with Charlee Adams, who had an effort from 25 yards tipped over the bar by Elliot Justham.
