Barnet 3-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

Michael Gash scored a brace as Barnet recorded back-to-back wins in the league with victory against Dagenham.

Gash put Barnet ahead after a minute, firing home from John Akinde's pass before Andy Yiadom netted his side's second from long range.

The hosts went 3-0 up after the break as Gash grabbed his second when he shot into the roof of the net.

Akinde nearly made it 4-0 but his drive hit the post before Jodi Jones' free-kick gave the Daggers a consolation.

Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC London 94.9:

"I thought we played very well today from start to finish, it was a top performance once again from our players.

"We fully deserved to win, it was an all round very very good team performance today.

"We've played better than that on quite a few occasions but haven't come out with anything, today the finishing was better, the end product was much better."

Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett told BBC London 94.9:

"We didn't get going, we played not very well at all, I was very, very disappointed. I've got no complaints with the score, Barnet thoroughly deserved to win.

"We just couldn't deal with Akinde to be honest with you - he was just too much for us, too powerful and too strong.

"We have to pick each other up and go again. I'm not going to make excuses but we weren't good enough, and from the start of the season we haven't been good enough, not for the want of trying. We have to all get better."
