Robins rout Daggers

Cheltenham boosted their promotion hopes with their biggest win of the season - a 5-0 drubbing of 10-man Dagenham.

The visitors took the lead after 20 minutes when Luke Garbutt's corner was cleared to the edge of the box where Luke Summerfield thundered into the top corner.

And two minutes later Cheltenham's lead was doubled after Daggers again failed to deal with a corner and Steve Elliott fired in low through a crowded box.

The match was effectively settled when Chris Lewington was sent off for handball outside the box four minutes before the interval, the resulting free-kick from Garbutt was parried out by substitute goalkeeper David Hogan and Kaid Mohamed fired in from close range.

After the break Cheltenham continued to dominate and made it four in the 62nd minute when Oluwafemi Ilesanmi failed to clear Sido Jombati's hopeful ball forwards and James Spencer took advantage to blast past Hogan.

Cheltenham's emphatic victory was complete after 71 minutes when Mohamed's left-wing cross deflected off Michael Spillane and up an over Hogan.
