Dagenham & Redbridge 0-1 Hartlepool United

Dagenham's winless run in League Two was stretched to eight matches as Billy Paynter's sixth goal of the season sealed three points for Hartlepool.

The visitors came close to taking the lead early on when Jake Carroll shot from distance but his effort went wide.

Pools broke the deadlock when Dan Jones crossed in for Paynter to nod home into the top left corner from close range.

Jamie Cureton came close to salvaging the hosts a point but his first-time effort was collected by Trevor Carson.

Dagenham & Redbridge first team coach Warren Hackett told BBC Radio London:

Hackett post Hartlepool

"I'm naturally disappointed obviously to lose the game regardless of whether it be home or away.

"I think when you dominate a game that much you'd expect to get something out of it.

"We probably had about 11, if not more, scoring opportunities and didn't take them so I'm naturally disappointed."
