Ashley Hemmings was again Daggers dangerman at Victoria Road as he terrorised Cheltenham and helped earn Wayne Burnett’s team all three points to move them up to 19th in the League Two table.

Jamie Cureton opened the scoring nine minutes into the second period after a goalless first half – firing in the rebound after his penalty had been saved by Trevor Carson.

Jack Dunn levelled it up for the Robins in the 62nd minute with a spot-kick of his own, but Hemmings lashed in nine minutes later to put the hosts into the ascendency.

Alex Jakubiak rounded off the scoring in stoppage time as he worked space inside the box before firing home to give Daggers a deserved victory.

Mark Cousins (6) – A quiet afternoon for Cousins and he was unlucky to give away penalty because it appeared he won the ball.

Damian Batt (6) – Right-back was caught out dribbling inside his own half again, but overall did a decent job in attack and defence.

Scott Doe (7) – Typical Scott Doe performance. Strong in the air, lots of talking with back four and chucking his body on the line when needed.

Ayo Obileye (8) – Charlton Athletic loan star gets better and better. Steady in defence and displayed great composure at times with ball at his feet.

Joe Widdowson (8) – Impressive performance from the left-back as he defended well and provided great outlet on the left. Partnership with Hemmings looks encouraging.

Luke Howell (7) – Different role for the midfielder out wide, but he came inside to good effect to help create opening goal and supported Batt brilliantly in defence.

Billy Bingham (7) – Central midfielder quietly went about his business in middle, but won the battles he needed to.

Andre Boucaud (7) – Trinidad and Tobago international earned Daggers penalty and looked good again alongside Bingham.

Ashley Hemmings (9) – One of best individual performances from a Daggers player this campaign. He was constantly causing Cheltenham problems and deservedly got his goal. Man of the match.

Rhys Murphy (6) – Forward was forced off with 35 minutes played after hurting his groin. Shame as he had the ball in net minutes beforehand, but ruled out for offside.

Jamie Cureton (8) – Poor penalty, but did excellently to get onto rebound and fire into Cheltenham net. Movement excellent throughout and linked up well with Jakubiak.

Substitutes:

Alex Jakubiak, for Murphy 35. (8) – Impressive display from 18-year-old, who played just behind Cureton and did well. He played his part in the first goal and got himself on the scoresheet in stoppage time.

Abu Ogogo, for Cureton 90.
