24 March 2012 06:01

Daggers leave it late

Scott Doe's injury-time header claimed a dramatic 2-1 victory over Accrington which lifted Dagenham out of the relegation zone.

The Daggers went close early on when Mathieu Baudry's goalbound effort was cleared off the line by Danny Coid, but Stanley were the better side for long periods and goalkeeper Chris Lewington made a fine save to keep out Bobby Grant's volley.

Yet Lewington was eventually beaten after 43 minutes, Grant curling home a low effort into the corner for his first goal since returning to the club on loan.

Stanley substitute Will Hatfield missed a golden opportunity to double the lead after the break when he shot over from close range following a slick move.

The home side piled on the pressure as the clock ticked down and their reward finally came with five minutes remaining, Michael Spillane crossed for substitute Brian Woodall and he headed past `keeper Lee Nicholls.

And the dramatic comeback was complete as the game moved into stoppage time as Aristote Nsiala was sent off for violent conduct and Doe rose to head in Medy Elito's free-kick.
