Daggers 0 Newport County 1

Daggers fans witnessed another defeat as they were beaten for the seventh time in nine home games this season.
The goal that won it for Newport came in the dying seconds of the game. And it is by no means the first time that has happened. When games are there to be won they simply have to be more ruthless and clinical and win them.

They were certainly the better team for much of this match. But drspite having much more of the ball they lacked a cutting edge and Newport keeper Joe Day did not have a sot to save for 70 minutes.

It was not until the Daggers pulled Jamie Cureton off the subs bench at that stage the Newport goal was threatened.

In his short time on the pitch Cureton could have had a hat trick. He had two efforts saved by Day and hit the bar with another rocket.

The goal that settled the issue and gave Newport a win that on the balance of play they certainly did not deserve came in the last minute when Chris Zebroski was left unmarked at the far post to head through a cross from the left.

That came after the Daggers had skipper Abu Ogogo sent off in the 78th minute following a bust up with Lee Minshull, who escaped with a yellow card for his part in the incident.

Dagenham & Redbridge: Cousins, Batt, Doe, Saah, Connors, Porter (Boucaud 82), Ogogo, Labadie (Bingham 45), Hemmings (Cureton 71), Chambers, Yusuff.
Unused substitutes: O’Brien, Doidge, Green, Partridge.
Attendance: 1654 (176 Newport County supporters).
