Wycombe Wanderers 1 Daggers 1

Daggers conceded another late goal but left Adams Park with a well earned point against Wycombe Wanderers, who led the League Two table before the match.

Jamie Cureton scored midway through the second half but Peter Murphy equalised for Gareth Ainsworth team to ensure it finished all square.

The hosts started the game with great intent and should have gone ahead with 15 minutes player through Murphy.

Paul Hayes did well to control the ball near the area and his floated ball into the box caught out Mark Cousins.

But fortunately for him and Wayne Burnett’s side, Murphy headed against the bar and it remained goalless.

Aaron Pierre then went close with a header from the edge of the box but Cousins did well to tip over the bar but neither side were able to break the deadlock at the half way point.

The visitors came out after the interval with superb energy and immediately looked a threat but Wycombe substitute Max Kretzschmar should have put them ahead six minutes into the second period but curled wide from a great position.

That really brought Daggers into life and a great run from Damian Batt nearly earned a goal but Matt Ingram tipped around the post.

And from the resulting corner kick, Cureton cut inside but could only volley over after doing the hard work beforehand.

The elder statesmen would make his mark soon after though as he tapped in the opening goal of the match in the 63rd minute.

Yusuff had a shot blocked inside the box and Cureton tapped in for his sixth goal of the season.

Unfortunately the visitors couldn’t hold on though as an excellent ball into the box from Sam Wood was powered into the net by Murphy.

Burnett was sent off by referee Simon Mathieson shortly afterwards for showing his anger at another inconsistent decision by the official and despite late pressure from Wycombe, Daggers held on.

It was a perhaps disappointing point conceding they lead going into the last ten minutes but a solid performance and one they hope will prove to be the turning point of the season.

Dagenham & Redbridge: Cousins, Batt, Green (Partridge 77), Doe, Saah, Chambers (Goldberg 89), Boucaud, Bingham, Porter, Cureton (Dodige 77), Yusuff.
Unused substitutes: O’Brien, Connors, Hemmings, Raymond
