Oxford United celebrate Kemar Roofe's hat-trick against Dagenham
Kemar Roofe netted his first hat-trick in a 25 goal season for Oxford United

Kemar Roofe netted a first hat-trick of his 25-goal season as Oxford United made light work of struggling Dagenham.

The midfielder broke the deadlock with a right-footed finish after combining with Alex MacDonald and Liam Sercombe.

He doubled the lead after the break by running on to George Waring's pass for a low finish past Liam O'Brien.

Substitute Danny Hylton hit the bar before MacDonald headed in number three and Roofe completed his treble late on for the second-placed U's.

Oxford consolidated their automatic promotion push following defeat against Leyton Orient on Saturday while Dagenham are nine points adrift of safety at the bottom with nine games remaining.
