Football News

Dagenham maintained their play-off charge with a 4-1 win victory over struggling Barnet.

The hosts took an early lead when Daniel Leach handled inside the area and Danny Green stepped up to slot the penalty home after five minutes.

The Daggers had chances to extend their lead but Jon Nurse and Josh Scott both fired wide, while when Green's free-kick was parried by Jake Cole and Scott Doe turned the rebound wide.

Barnet rarely threatened in the opening exchanges, but they were level on the stroke of half-time when Jake Hyde ghosted in to nod past Tony Roberts.

The Bees almost went in front moments into the second period, but substitute Albert Jarrett hacked wildly wide.

The Daggers regained the lead after 67 minutes when Leach hauled down Paul Benson in the box and was sent off, with Green converting his second penalty of the evening.

In the closing stages the Daggers' superiority paid off as Benson tapped home from a few yards and Josh Scott's solo run ended with the striker curling his shot past Cole.
