Daggers 0 Luton Town 2

Former boss John Still had a victorious return to Victoria Road as Dagenham & Redbridge lost 2-0 against Luton Town.

Daggers made five changes from their previous match with skipper Andre Boucaud being replaced in midfield by new loan signing James Dunne.
 
After making several appearances from the bench in recent weeks, Jodi Jones took over from Kane Ferdinand on the right side of midfield.
 
The Hatters had the game’s first shot on target in the ninth minute but Liam O’Brien palmed away Jack Marritott’s 20-yard effort.
 
O’Brien was back in action in the 25th minute to again deny Marriott, this time the Luton player seeing a close range header turned away for a corner.
 
His opposite number Mark Tyler was called upon five minutes later to keep the scores level to deny Jamie Cureton from 18 yards.
 
The visitors took the lead with five minutes remaining in the first half when Luke Guttridge lobbed the ball over an onrushing O’Brien.
 
The hosts thought they had been given a great chance to level things up after Joss Labadie looked to be fouled in the box in the 56th minute.
 
However, the referee instead booked the midfielder for diving which baffled most of the home support.
 
Daggers looked to have another great chance to pull level through Ashley Hemmings in the 63rd minute but the winger fired wide when one-on-one with Tyler.
 
From the resulting free kick, Luton grabbed their second of the afternoon in fortuitous circumstances.
 
Pask tried to shield to ball back to O’Brien but the ball bobbled off the pair towards Guttridge who passed to Alex Lawless who scored.
 
That goal seemed to end the match as a contest with neither side testing either goalkeeper in the remaining moments.
