Daggers 2 - 1 Bromley

Dagenham & Redbridge returned to winning ways in the Vanarama National League with a 2-1 win at home to Bromley.
Daggers made two changes for the clash, with Jake Howells and Frankie Raymond coming in to the starting XI.

With less than two minutes on the clock, Jordan Maguire-Drew fired just past the top left corner of the net for Daggers as they looked to make a fast start against the Ravens.

Daggers fell behind in just the seventh minute when Brandon Hanlan found the net from 18 yards.

Against the run of play, Daggers levelled through Fejiri Okenabirhie after an Oliver Hawkins knockdown in the 40th minute.

The second half was a closely-fought affair, with both sides struggling to carve out many chances despite some good work.

With just two minutes remaining, Jake Sheppard scored the winning goal in spectacular fashion as he rifled home from 25 yards.

It proved to be the match winning moment, and Daggers will hope to earn all three points again when they host Maidstone United on Tuesday night.
