Dagenham & Redbridge 0-1 Newport County

Chris Zebroski goes close for Newport County

Chris Zebroski secured a second successive victory for Newport County in League Two with a late winner at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Zebroski headed home Andy Sandell's cross in the final minute against 10-man Dagenham.

Home captain Abu Ogogo was sent-off with 10 minutes remaining after lashing out at Lee Minshull.

Joe Pigott hit the post for Newport while Dagenham's veteran substitute Jamie Cureton twice struck the bar.

Dagenham boss Wayne Burnett told BBC London 94.9:

Burnett on Dagenham v Newport

"We did every thing but score. They scored and they toook the three points- but the game has changed from the referees decision.

"We started very well and started very bright, had a few chances that we should have capitalised on.

"When it's 0-0 it gives them a chance to get into the game- we should have scored one or two goals in the first half.

"Abu Ogogo's red was not a sending off. Lee Minshull has got him round the neck and their assistant manager has just come in and said it wasn't a sending off."

Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told Radio Wales Sport:

"We're slightly fortunate to take away all three points. I think a draw would have been a fair result but I've stood here before and we've deserved out of games.

"Sometimes you've got to win ugly and we've done that today.

"When you come away from home you have to be solid and I thought we were. It took us a little while to get a grip of the game."
