Match ends, Braintree Town 2, Dagenham and Redbridge 0.
Braintree continued their post-relegation resurgence with a victory over Dagenham & Redbridge to record their fourth win in five National League games.
Mohammed Sagaf demonstrated some great technique to lift the ball past his marker and shoot, but Lewis Moore in the visitors' goal was equal to him.
At the other end, Tomi Adeloye tested Ben Killip with a fierce shot, but the stopper stooped to save smartly.
The Iron broke the deadlock after 76 minutes through substitute Alfie Cerulli, who took Korrey Henry's pass in his stride and beat Moore in a one-on-one.
Sagaf added the second with a brilliant curled effort with four minutes to go.
