Portsmouth 3 Daggers 0

Three was the magic number of the evening as the Daggers conceded three goals, for the third consecutive match for the team's third defeat to Portsmouth.

Goalkeeper, Mark Cousins was given the nod ahead of number one, Liam O'Brien and George Porter replaced Ashley Hemmings on the wing.

The visitors started the brighter of the two as Luke Howell saw his great effort pushed away by the Pompey 'keeper.

It was James Dunne who was first to put one past the Daggers in the 40th minute as he expertly picked out the top corner, a goal which Cousins faced no chance in saving.

The Daggers were left to rue their chances to level the scoreline as Ashley Chambers' curling effort hit the bar just before half-time and the visitors certainly had the better of the chances after the break.

After finding himself in the book in the first half, Andre Boucaud was given a second yellow for a late challenge, leaving the Daggers to see out the rest of the game with 10.

It was six minutes later that the hosts got their second opportunity when Matt Partridge appeared to drag down his man in the area and the referee awarded a penalty.

It was left to Wallace to convert the spot kick and he didn’t disappoint as he sent the Daggers goalkeeper the wrong way.

It went from bad to worse for Dagenham as a quick break from Pompey lead to Pompey’s third as substitute Barcham made an instant impact, scoring in the dying minutes.
