Dover Athletic 0-2 Dagenham & Redbridge

Dover slumped further adrift at the bottom of the National League after a 2-0 home defeat by fellow relegation battlers Dagenham & Redbridge.

Ole Adeloye gave the Daggers an early lead and also played a key part in the build-up, heading on for Angelo Balanta to get in behind the Whites' defence and tee up a curled finish.

The hosts were clearly struggling for confidence, and just before half-time Harry Phipps made it 2-0 with a downward header from Jack Munns' corner.

Inih Effiong was unlucky not to reduce the arrears in the second half when he fired a shot which deflected off the crossbar and away to safety.

Agonisingly for Dover, Elliot Justham turned the same player's dipping free-kick on to the woodwork again minutes later.
