Dagenham lose lead to suffer Mansfield defeat

Dagenham & Redbridge are still on the lookout for a first home win after blowing a two-goal lead to lose 4-3 to Mansfield in Sky Bet League Two.

The Stags took the lead in the sixth minute through a wonder strike from left back Malvind Benning, who volleyed home from 20 yards.

But Daggers responded quickly as they drew level through Matt McClure in the eighth minute, shooting home from 25 yards.

Ashley Chambers then fired Dagenham ahead in the 30th minute as his shot from 10 yards was deflected past Brian Jensen.

Chambers soon netted his second, latching on to a long ball forward in the 32nd minute before slotting home from just inside the box.

The visitors were awarded a penalty in the 37th minute when Clevid Dikamona tripped Matt Green who punished the home side when he converted the spot kick.

The second half stagnated somewhat but the Stags drew level with a powerful header from Krystian Pearce in the 81st minute.

They went on to claim victory when Adi Yusuff slotted past Liam O'Brien from a tight angle in the 86th minute.
