Dagenham & Redbridge stretched their unbeaten run to three games with a 0-0 draw at home to Carlisle United, though they can’t help but feel it should have been another win.

In a frantic match, both sides had glorious opportunities to find the net, but were denied either by top goalkeeping, the woodwork or their own poor finishing.

Daggers hit the post and were frustrated by visiting keeper Mark Gillespie, who appeared to posses the flair quality, while at the other end their defence was impressive.

Before the match, maybe Daggers would have taken the point, but in the end it feels like a missed chance having played so well.

Liam O’Brien (7.5) - Another top night for the in-form stopper who made it three clean sheets in a row — the first time Daggers have achieved that since January 2015 (also with a run of 0-0, 1-0 and 0-0). The keeper pulled off some top saves and caught corners confidently.

Justin Hoyte (7) - The former Arsenal man did what he needed too, sweeping up well in defence while also helping out in attack when the chance came.

Joe Worrall (8) - After struggling with the physicallity of Jabo Ibehre early on, young defender grew into the game and turned in another good performance.

Clevid Dikamona (8.5) - It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the soon-to-be Congolese international, but even so he was immense against Carlisle. He made a superb last-ditch challenge to deny Charlie Wyke and never looked like being beaten in the air.

Joe Widdowson (7) - Similar to Hoyte in that it was another solid display from the former West Ham trainee.

Josh Passley (8) - Rightly pushed up to a more advanced position after several good, but brief displays there in recent weeks. Going forward, looks like this should be his position with former Fulham player looking comfortable on the wing.

Andre Boucaud (7) - The Trinidad & Tobago international tackled well in midfield and thankfully no flashy dragbacks, but should have been doing better with his delivery from corners.

Oliver Muldoon (8.5) - Wearing that blue headband to protect a head injury, currently looks like something from Braveheart and his displays are matching that too. I was hugely impressed by the midfielder who took on some added responsibility with Joss Labadie and Matt Richards absent. The Charlton youngster looks to be maturing with every game.

Ashley Hemmings (8) - The winger looks like he is getting close to the heights of last season when, at times, he was unplayable. It was another menacing evening down the left and he looks to have his spark back.

Matty Cash (6.5) - He started his professional debut brightly with a couple of early efforts, but seemed to fade after that. Would Ashley Chambers have been a better option in the hole? Possibly, but hopefully the teenager improves as the weeks go on.

Christian Doidge (6.5) - Having hit the bar once again, he must be wondering if he’s smashed any mirrors in the past week. His work rate can’t be knocked and his aerial presence was again good, all he needs is just a few more goals.

Substitues:

Matt McClure for Cash 68 (6.5) - It can be difficult to make an impact when coming on as a substitute and while there was endeavour and good touches from him, he could not impose himself on the game.

Oliver Hawkins for Doidge 68 (6.5) - Credit to the tall striker who did win his fair share of headers, but he was not in and around the box as often as I would have liked.
