Southend 1-1 Dag and Red
Brian Woodall scored his third goal in three matches as his late equaliser earned struggling Dagenham & Redbridge a point at promotion-chasing Southend.
The visitors started well as Woodall, Jon Nurse and Cristian Montano all missed decent opportunities.
Southend's Michael Timlin, playing his last game on loan from Swindon, scored from 25 yards after Ryan Leonard's long throw was not fully cleared.
Woodall levelled with a fierce low shot after good work from Billy Bingham.
