John Still lost for the first time on the road in his third stint as Dagenham & Redbridge boss after Cambridge United triumphed 1-0.

A late penalty from Luke Berry proved to be the difference in a game that was lacking skill because of the arrival of Storm Imogen.

But even considering the circumstances, it was at times a lacklustre display when a little more application could have seen Daggers take all three points back to Victoria Road.

Mark Cousins (6.5) - Produced some great saves to bail Daggers out on numerous occasions before finally being beaten from the spot. Yes he struggled with his kicking, but any stopper would in that wind. Even my car was being blown backwards on the way home the gale was that strong.

Josh Passley (5) - Struggled with the surface more than any other player at the Abbey Stadium, slipping on several occasions which almost led to a Cambridge goal. Nearly gifted hosts another when trying to shield ball out of play, so an afternoon to forget for the right back.

Joe Worrall (6) - Not his best display in a Daggers shirt, compounded by giving away the penalty which ultimately cost Daggers. But it was only his third professional game, playing alongside a new centre back partner who was playing his first so we can hardly blame him.

Dom Hyam (6.5) - Straight into the starting line up for the deadline day loan signing and read the game well, but could probably have done with a more experienced head alongside him.

Joe Widdowson (6) - First start since the Boxing Day loss at home to the U’s and while he didn’t do anything outstanding to advance his claims for starting berth in future, didn’t do anything majorly wrong either.

Ashley Chambers (5) - I’m not against the 25-year-old being in the squad, but just not as a winger. Struggled to create anything down the right flank and cause the home defence any problems. Should hammer home the fact he is of far more use centrally.

Joss Labadie (6.5) - One thing we’ve come to learn from the captain this season is that he’ll never let you down and even at his worst he’ll still put in a shift, which was the case at Cambridge.

Oliver Muldoon (6) - Struggled to have as much of an impact on proceedings as he has since joining and could not get on top in the midfield battle.

Ashley Hemmings (5) - Like Chambers, struggled to create anything down the flanks and was not menacing at all, which was a shame given last showing at the Abbey Stadium.

Luke Guttridge (5) - Somewhat unimpressed by midfielder. Nothing he tried came off, set piece deliveries were poor — although not helped by wind — and kept getting in the way of his team mates. Let’s just move on quickly...

Christian Doidge (6.5) - Like Labadie, will give it his all, but must learn when playing as the lone striker to put flick ons towards team mates rather towards goal where there is no one to chase.

Substitutes:

Jamie Cureton for Guttridge 86.

Oliver Hawkins for Doidge 86.

Jodi Jones for Chambers 86.
