DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE dropped to fourth place in League Two after Bury's 2-1 win over Bradford lifted the Shakers into the automatic promotion places on Tuesday night.

Mike Jones opened the scoring for the home side at Gigg Lane, but Bury defender Efe Sodje threw the Valiants a lifeline with an own goal.

However, a Ryan Lowe penalty ensured that it was Bury who took all three points and leapfrogged John Still's men.
