Grimsby 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

05 December 2009 06:13
Dagenham and Redbridge lost ground on the top two after they were held to a draw by second-bottom Grimsby.Michael Coulson gave the Mariners the lead when he collected a deep cross from Nicky Featherstone, turned and cracked home a fierce shot.

It was almost 2-0 when Peter Sweeney's free-kick hit the bar and Adam Miller's head before bouncing clear.

Jon Nurse headed in to level and Paul Benson should have won it for Dagenham but he hit the bar from close range.



Dagenham and Redbridge assistant manager, Terry Harris told BBC Essex:

"I think it was a point gained. This is a very difficult place to come to and at the end of the day, we had a bad time Tuesday and I think the first half was a continuation really.

"We did okay and gave a bad goal away, we should have defended better."
