Dagenham & Redbridge 0-3 Bristol Rovers

Billy Bodin
Billy Bodin scored his fourth goal for Bristol Rovers since signing in the summer

Bristol Rovers moved into the play-off places with a win that sent Dagenham & Redbridge bottom of League Two.

Lee Brown beat goalkeeper Mark Cousins with a powerful shot from a well-worked free-kick routine to open the scoring.

Rovers doubled their lead late on when Rory Gaffney rounded off a swift counter-attack with a curled effort.

Billy Bodin finished off the scoring in stoppage time to hand the Daggers their third straight defeat and increase pressure on manager Wayne Burnett.

Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett told BBC Radio London:

Burnett post Bristol Rovers

"We've conceded three goals at home, very, very disappointing. Another home defeat and another disappointment.

"I've never quit in anything that I've done. If the board decide that they want to sack me, then that's out of my hands.

"I think three-nil flattered them a little bit, but overall they deserved to win."
