Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 Wrexham: Kandi leaves Dragons feeling sick
Chike Kandi gave Dagenham & Redbridge their first win in five games to move them within a point of the National League play-off zone.
Angelo Balanta put the home side ahead when he diverted Will Wood's cross past Wrexham goalkeeper Robert Lainton.
The relegation-threatened Dragons equalised when Luke Young smashed home after a goal-mouth scramble.
But Kandi got the vital, winning touch after Balanta controlled in the box before hitting a fierce cross.
Wrexham manager Dean Keates: "It's the story of the season: two sloppy goals to concede, not taking chances - especially in the first half.
"We got in good areas but the final ball wouldn't be good enough.
"We need to grind out results now, they need to be men and stand up and be counted... bodies need to be put on the line now."
