Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 Torquay United

A last-minute Fejiri Okenabirhie penalty saw a relieved Dagenham edge past struggling Torquay 1-0 at Victoria Road.

Still winless this campaign, the Gulls looked poised for a pleasing point - and arguably deserved one - but with time ebbing away, the substitute striker coolly scored after Sean McGinty was stopped in the box.

The Daggers found it hard to break through a resolute backline and when they did Vincent Dorel was in top form to save Scott Doe's header.

Torquay attacked with merit in the second half and Mark Cousins had to be strong to turn aside Jamie Reid's firm volley from 25 yards. But Gary Owers' men were left without a victory for the 13th time.
