National League: Lincoln City 2-0 Dagenham & Redbridge

Matt Rhead
Matt Rhead scored his first goal since February to give the Imps a two-goal cushion

Lincoln City moved three points clear at top of the National League with victory against fellow promotion challengers Dagenham & Redbridge.

Defender Elliott Whitehouse bundled in early after half-time after Luke Waterfall's header hit the post, following a stalemate first period.

Striker Matt Rhead gave the Imps a cushion when he headed in a corner.

The Daggers, who stay fourth, saw their best chances fall to Corey Whitely who was denied by home keeper Paul Farman.

Tranmere, who play on Tuesday, can close back level on points with Lincoln at the top with victory, but will have played a game more.
