Hartlepool United 1-0 Dagenham & Redbridge

Jonathan Franks' third goal in as many games condemned leaders Dagenham to a first defeat of the season and earned Hartlepool a third straight victory.

The home side could have been behind in the opening minutes as goalkeeper Scott Loach did well to keep out efforts from Morgan Ferrier and Kevin Lokko.

At the other end, Pools defender Keith Watson sent a header off the crossbar and Connor Simpson nodded over.

Fejiri Okenabirhie was denied by Loach before the break and Ferrier shortly after the restart, but it was Hartlepool who went ahead through Franks' neat dinked finish.

Loach palmed away a Lokko header as Dagenham pushed for the equaliser their efforts warranted, but resolute Pools held on.
