Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Luton Town
Play-off hopefuls Luton held on for a goalless draw against Dagenham despite playing the second half with 10 men.
Joe Widdowson went close for the Daggers early on but his header was cleared off the line by Paul Benson.
Luton, whose boss John Still was returning to former club Dagenham for the first time, saw Benson red carded for a high foot on Ian Gayle.
Ashley Hemmings almost won it for Dagenham but his shot was blocked on the line by Michael Harriman.
Since beating Accrington to go fourth in League Two in late February, Luton have been on a terrible run of form, having only won once in their last 10 games, including eight losses.
Despite this, the Hatters remain just three points off the play-off places in eighth position.
Luton manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"There was no maliciousness in it (Paul Benson's tackle) whatsoever, he didn't even know where the player was. In defence of Dagenham's bench, they said it was never a sending off.
"Honestly, I've given up on decisions this year, I really have. I just think we've had so many things happen that haven't fallen for us which, when re-examined, showed that they should have done.
"We should have had a penalty, 100%, and that's from Dagenham, and then the sending off.
"The boys have done fantastically, what's pleased us all we've conceded one goal in the last three."
