Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 Macclesfield Town
Morgan Ferrier's goal earned Dagenham all three points against Macclesfield in the National League.
The visitors were thankful to captain Scott Doe early on as he blocked Scott Wilson's effort before clearing off the line to deny opposing skipper Danny Whittaker.
Ferrier carried a threat for the hosts and went close three times in quick succession from the half-hour, to no avail, and it was goalless at half-time.
Ferrier it was, though, who made the 49th-minute breakthrough when a defensive error allowed him to latch on to Charlee Adams' through-ball, round keeper Sam Ramsbottom and score.
Adams curled a free-kick just wide but Doe was forced to head over his own bar at the other end before Danny Whitehead's stoppage-time shot was saved by home keeper Mark Cousins.
