Friendly: Barnet 1 Dagenham & Redbridge 2

Dagenham & Redbridge recorded a 2-1 win at League Two outfit Barnet in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday afternoon, with both goals coming from academy starlet Jordy Mongoy.

The friendly saw a welcome return to action for defender Curtley Williams and midfielder Matt Robinson as the pair continued their recovery from lengthy spells on the sidelines.

Williams had been out since August with a knee injury, while Robinson suffered a broken leg in the home defeat against Gateshead in November.

Both players started the match at The Hive, as did forward Corey Whitely, who is available for selection this weekend after serving a three-game ban for violent conduct.

There were also starts for youngsters Liam Gordon, Leo Donnellan and Mongoy.

Both Daggers goals came in the second half, with Mongoy netting twice in an impressive outing for the Victoria Road outfit.

Daggers owner Glyn Hopkin, who watched the friendly, took to Twitter at the full-time whistle, posting: “Good result. Valuable minutes for the players coming back and good experience for the youngsters.”
