Dagenham & Redbridge 1 Leyton Orient 0
A LAST-MINUTE goal from Scott Griffiths gave Daggers a 1-0 victory over Leyton Orient on Saturday, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
Griffiths was left unmarked at the death to head home Solomon Taiwo's corner and give the hosts what was a deserved victory.
Paul Benson had come close for Daggers, hitting the post from an acute angle, while Mark Arber also put a header wide.
Orient threatened sporadically, as Sean Thornton somehow volleyed wide from a yard, while JJ Melligan blasted off target.
