George Sessions provides player ratings following the 3-1 defeat.

A hat-trick from Mark Cullen gave former Daggers boss John Still all three points against his old side.

Christian Doidge was able to pull one back for Wayne Burnett’s team but they were left to rue conceding twice before half time.

Mark Cousins (7) – Keeper wasn’t given much chance with first and third goals and was forced into a decision for second and unfortunately Cullen was able to round Cousins and slot into the net.

Damian Batt (6) – He was beaten in the air by Cullen for the first goal and played the Luton forward on for the second.

Scott Doe (6) – Central defender made a few key blocks but tried to step up for second goal and it proved to be an unwise decision.

Brian Saah (6) – Allowed Adam Drury to get his cross in for the first goal far too easy and wasn’t at his usual best.

Nathan Green (6) – Tough return to the team for the youngster and he looked nervous with his passing throughout the game.

Billy Bingham (7) – Hard working display by midfield, who was making his first start in the league this season. He played some intelligent long balls and performed well, especially in the second period.

Matt Partridge (8) – First start since facing Leyton Orient and did an excellent job in an unfamiliar midfield role. He lost the ball on a few occasions but created most of Daggers chances. Man of the match.

Andre Boucaud (6) – Trinidad and Tobago international struggled to stamp his authority on the game against his former club. Subbed off just past the hour mark.

Ashley Chambers (6) – Attacker couldn’t influence the game like he has done in previous appearances over the season. Worked hard.

Jamie Cureton (7) – Brought back into team after slight hamstring strain and showed his sharpness throughout. He came close to giving Daggers the lead in first half and had three more good efforts. Deserved a goal.

Ade Yusuff (6) – Forward was asked to do some dirty work and although he worked tirelessly again, he couldn’t get on the ball in attacking positions and was subbed off early.


George Porter, for Yusuff 52. (7) – Winger immediately looked a threat as soon as he entered pitch and put a couple of decent balls into the box. Great wing play for the consolation.

Christian Doidge, for Boucaud 62. (7) – Great cameo from Welsh forward and he brilliantly headed home his first goal for the club in the final minutes. Good impact.

Ashley Hemmings, for Chambers 71. (6) – Winger didn’t get a great amount of time to change proceedings at Kenilworth Road but looked lively.
