Stevenage 1-3 Dagenham & Redbridge

Christian Doidge
Christian Doidge's goal was his fourth of the season for Dagenham & Redbridge

Dagenham & Redbridge beat Stevenage 3-1 to end their four-game losing streak and move off the foot of League Two.

Ashley Chambers headed managerless Dagenham in front and it was quickly followed by captain Joss Labadie's strike to double the lead.

Fraser Franks pulled one back for the home side but Christian Doidge added the Daggers' third from six yards.

Stevenage's Jamille Matt headed over and Callum McFadzean also went close but Dagenham held on to secure victory.

Stevenage boss Teddy Sheringham told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"We started the game very well, had chances, didn't take them - looked decidedly shaky at the back.

"It cost us goals and put us out of the game in a 20 minute period where they were quite ruthless.

"It's happened before that we've had good possession, good chances and good play in the first 10 to 15 minutes and not taken our chances. It's a problem for us.

"We've got thinking to do about Saturday and then the window opens again. Loans aren't always the best thing, you've got to keep a continuity and a unified feel about the squad."

Dagenham & Redbridge coach Warren Hackett told BBC Radio London:

"We just really tried to stick to a simple game plan.

"We're bottom of the league. We took a chance to change things and it worked for us this time.

"Apart from maybe a couple of lapses in the first 10 to 15 minutes, we were quite resolute and looked quite solid."
