Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Tranmere Rovers
Dagenham held on to top spot in the National League with a goalless draw against a stubborn 10-man Tranmere at Victoria Road.
Jordan Maguire-Drew had the best chance of a quiet first half with a great touch and fierce shot which Rovers goalkeeper Scott Davies did well to turn around the post.
The visitors were the better side during the opening exchanges of the second half but that changed when Michael Ihiekwe was dismissed after receiving his second yellow card with 36 minutes remaining.
Substitute Christian Assombalonga thought he had put the Daggers ahead when he connected with Andre Boucard's late corner but his powerful header hit a post.
Andy Cook should have won all three points for Tranmere but drilled his volley wide with the last kick of the game as the visitors earned a valuable point.
