Dagenham & Redbridge 1-2 Shrewsbury

Liam Lawrence
Liam Lawrence's late winner from the penalty spot was his first goal of the season

Liam Lawrence's 95th-minute penalty completed a second-half comeback for 10-man Shrewsbury away at Dagenham.

Billy Bingham opened the scoring after five minutes, and the Daggers' position was improved when Jermaine Grandison saw red for pulling down Ade Yusuff when he was through on goal.

Andy Mangan, who scored against Chelsea in midweek, then equalised on 70 minutes before earning the spot-kick.

The Shrews are up to third in League Two after five successive victories

Dagenham remain in 21st, three points above the bottom two.

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett told BBC London 94.9:

Burnett on Dagenham v Shrewsbury

"We started the game very well. I think we were on the front foot.

"I wasn't happy when their player got sent off, I felt it changed the game. They raised their game and we took the back foot and gave them the initiative.

"When you're losing games you can become a little apprehensive, a little bit nervous and a little bit anxious - and we showed that.

"Their first goal was a great finish but their second goal was just comical defending."

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"I think the most satisfying thing as a manger is that even though we had so many setbacks in this game, we believed in what we could do and we trusted the players to find the energy levels to win the game.

"We had a tough game in midweek against Chelsea and to have that determination to win the game today is great to see.

"The goal to equalise was sublime as their goalkeeper has made six or seven outstanding saves. You know with this group of players they will not give up easily.

"I do not think we had a bad first half. We tried to play football, we kept to the plan and we are satisfied with what we have done.

"We can take great satisfaction to be in the top three, but the job is not done.

"We have had a lot of physical pressure the last few weeks. This week is all about recovery so we are ready for a special cup tie away at Walsall next Saturday."
