Dagenham & Redbridge 0-2 Northampton Town

Marc Richards

Marc Richards' first-half double sealed victory for Northampton over Dagenham.

Kaid Mohamed's square ball found Richards, who coolly slotted past Liam O'Brien to give the visitors an early lead.

Richards added a second when he headed low beyond O'Brien from Joel Byrom's corner.

The Daggers posed little threat, with Luke Howell's 25-yard effort pushed over the bar by Matt Duke proving to be their best chance of the afternoon.
