Dagenham & Redbridge 3-1 Cheltenham Town

Dagenham and Redbridge scored three second-half goals to secure an important win against relegation rivals Cheltenham Town.

Jamie Cureton put the hosts ahead from his rebounded spot kick after Craig Braham-Barrett felled Andrew Boucaud.

Mark Cousins then brought down Jack Dunn soon after, allowing Dunn to score from the spot to draw the Robins level.

Ashley Hemmings then fired past Trevor Carson before Alex Jakubiak put the Daggers out of sight for their third.

The two sides are level on 30 points - along with Tranmere, Carlisle and Portsmouth - but Cheltenham slip to 21st on goal difference.

Dagenham and Redbridge assistant boss Darren Currie told BBC London 94.9:

"There were a couple of flashes of good play in the first-half, but we tended to play backwards rather than forwards.

"We were a bit frustrated with the first half but certainly the way we attacked the game in the second half was very pleasing.

"To be honest, I don't think either goals were penalties.

"I thought ours was quite cheap and to be fair I thought theirs was possibly cheaper."

Cheltenham Town manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"On another day, in another season, we'll go and score but in the predicament we're in at the moment, we seem to make an error.

"We've got to start playing percentages and know how to hold onto a game.

"Today we gifted it in the end but there was a good things if you look back.

"We have to recover quickly and not feel sorry for ourselves."
