Daggers conceded in the final 10 minutes to lose against a relegation rival at Field Mill on Saturday and drop to 19th in the League Two standings.

Reggie Lambe had put Mansfield into the lead, but Jamie Cureton cancelled out that goal with a trademark finish to net for the 250th time in the Football League.

But Junior Brown fired past a group of players and Mark Cousins seven minutes from time to consign Wayne Burnett’s team to a second consecutive defeat.

Mark Cousins (7) – Daggers number one was again impressive and made two excellent second half stops. He had a little bit of trouble with set pieces, but in the whole performed well.

Abu Ogogo (7) – Another solid display from away captain and linked up well with Luke Howell in first half to set up chance for Alex Jakubiak, which youngster wasted. He did allow Lambe to run off him in build up to first goal.

Scott Doe (7) – Central defender was brilliant as normal and cleared an effort off the line in the second period. He dealt well with Stags attacking threats.

Ayo Obileye (6) – Charlton Athletic loan defender wasn’t as assured as normal and was too focused on battling with Vadaine Oliver.

Joe Widdowson (6) – Left-back needed to get tighter to Brown for the opening goal, but performed well for majority of match.

Luke Howell (7) – Especially impressive in the first half and put in a typical industrious display. He showed moments of quality as well and was Daggers best on the day.

Billy Bingham (7) – Conditions made it tough for Bingham to dictate play like he normally would, but another consistent performance from midfielder.

Andre Boucaud (7) – He played a lovely pass into Cureton for the opener and unlucky with long range effort shortly afterwards. Good showing.

Ashley Hemmings (6) – A couple of wonderful moments of trickery and some glimpses of attacking potential, but couldn’t influence game as much as he would have liked.

Alex Jakubiak (5) – It wasn’t the youngster day. He worked hard and got himself into good positions, but missed great first half chance and wasn’t at his best.

Jamie Cureton (7) – Superb finish to equalise and net for the 250th time in the league, but he was isolated too much up front and was working off scraps.


Shamir Fenelon, for Jakubiak 80.

Daniel Carr, for Howell 85.
