This ranks as the most joyous, uplifting day in the new Wembley Stadium’s short life: Twas a brilliant game, played in a brilliant spirit, in front of two sets of brilliant fans. Brilliant!
The Daggers took the lead three times (Paul Benson, Danny Green, John Nurse) in a gripping encounter – one of the games of the season for me. Rotherham came back twice with a pair of goals by the impressive Ryan Taylor but could not find a third goal to send the match into extra time.
And so the Essex club’s remarkable, Wimbledon-mirroring rise up the divisions continues. Congrats to manager John Still and all at the club. League One awaits. After that, who knows?
