Southend United 0-0 Dagenham & Redbridge

Ten-man Southend picked up their second successive goalless draw at Roots Hall as Dagenham slipped into the League Two relegation zone.

The visitors looked to have taken the lead when Shrimpers defender John White put the ball into his own net, but it was disallowed for offside.

Southend then went close through Jack Payne and Barry Corr, before the Daggers' saw a second shot ruled out.

Cian Bolger then saw red for violent conduct with 20 minutes remaining.

The Irishman was penalised for a foul on visiting goalkeeper Mark Cousins, before referee Gavin Ward brandished a straight red card to Bolger for an incident involving Joss Labadie.

Phil Brown's side have now not conceded at home in League Two for 379 minutes, while Dagenham fall to 23rd after Tranmere's victory at home to Northampton.

Dagenham assistant Warren Hackett told BBC London 94.9:

"It was a typical derby day, a bit ferocious and lots of tackles flying around. Southend came at us with a good tempo certainly at the start of the second half and we had to ride our luck a little bit, but we had to be a bit more resilient than we have been previously and we were that today.

Hackett on Dagenham v Southend

(On the first offside decision) "We are very very disappointed, we went and had a look at the video footage and it was a goal - simple as. Ashley Hemmings was not offside and they've put it in their own goal - there was nothing wrong with it.

"When they went down to 10 men I would have liked us to be a little bit more on the front foot but after previous results confidence is a bit low in the group.

"I think today we worked very hard and deserved to keep a clean sheet and were maybe a bit unfortunate not to score a goal."
