Sky Bet League Two: Dagenham & Redbridge 1 Wycombe Wanderers 2

Dagenham & Redbridge’s winless run at home goes on after a narrow loss against promotion chasers Wycombe Wanderers.

It was a poor first half from Daggers in which they had a man sent off and conceded on the stroke of half time.

While it was better after the break, the east Londoners were unable to take anything from vulnerable Chairboys outfit.

There was just one change for the hosts with Jodi Jones making his first start since December 19.

Luke Guttridge and Dom Hyam made their home debuts after joining during the transfer window, while Justin Hoyte was on the bench after missing Saturday’s match.

Joe Worrall also started for the east Londoners after having his loan deal from Nottingham Forest extended until March 6.

It took just 20 seconds for Daggers to concede the game’s first corner, which was narrowly scooped over at the far post by Wycombe striker Garry Thompson.

That was about as interesting as things were inside the opening 15 minutes, with Ashley Hemmings providing two crosses that were easily dealt with.

Finally there was a shot on target in the 23rd minute after Joss Labadie was fouled 20 yards out.

Jones, who scored from a similar position at Barnet in September, stepped up to take the set piece and his low effort was pushed away by Ryan Allsop.

By now Daggers were on top, but were reduced to 10 men in the 31st minute after Josh Passley hauled down an advancing Thompson as the last player.

It handed Wycombe an advantage they nearly took, but Mark Cousins rushed out well to smother the ball at the feet of Chairboys striker Paul Hayes five minutes later.

But Cousins’ resolve was beaten on the stroke of half time as Hayes scored on the stroke of half time.

A free kick into the box was played back across goal by Paris Cowan-Hall was tapped in by Hayes to send Daggers into the break a man and a goal down.

Daggers started brightly in the second half, forcing two corners in quick succession, but to little avail.

Oliver Hawkins was introduced at half time and tested Allsop from the edge of the area in the 58th minute, but his effort was straight at the keeper.

The hosts were handed a further boost in the 60th minute with Wycombe also reduced to 10 men as Thompson saw red for a bad challenge on Labadie.

It took 12 minutes for the hosts to get parity on the scoreline too as Guttridge capped his home debut in style.

After a sustained period of possession, the ball was launched into the box to Labadie who crossed to the near post.

Hoyte was there to flick the ball across goal with Guttridge waiting to apply the simplest of finishes.

But the score didn’t remain level for long as Cowan-Hall looped a header over Cousins just two minutes later.

Daggers were almost level in the 78th minute, but Christian Doidge could only head against the post.

But try as they might, no equaliser was forthcoming as they remain four points adrift of safety in the relegation zone.
