Forest Green Rovers 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

Dagenham salvaged a point against Forest Green Rovers as the battle of the National League's top two ended 1-1 at the New Lawn.

Rhys Murphy caused problems for Daggers goalkeeper Elliot Justham throughout a lively yet goalless first half, but the Irish frontman got the breakthrough he deserved just after the break as he squeezed a low shot into the bottom corner.

But Oliver Hawkins equalised for Daggers after 74 minutes, heading home Joe Widdowson's cross and denying Forest Green goalkeeper Sam Russell of a record-equalling eight successive clean sheets in the process.

The draw is enough to keep Forest Green top, but Dagenham have slipped to third after Lincoln's victory over Chester.
