A LATE GOAL by Tommy Tejan-Sie saw Dagenham & Redbridge defeat Thurrock 2-1 at Ship Lane on Monday night.

Tejan-Sie struck with just a minute remaining, driving the ball into the next from inside the penalty box, as Daggers secured victory.

Manager John Still named a youthful side for the match, with only Tejan-Sie, goalkeeper Dave Hogan and striker Daniel Charge having tasted first team action before.

The visitors were ahead on 28 minutes, when 18-year-old striker Kwesi Appiah, formerly of Peterborough slid the ball home.

Thurrock levelled on the stroke of half time, but the game was decided by Tejan-Sie's late strike.

Daggers: David Hogan, Matt Pooley (Charlie Hurlock 79), Harlee Dean, Hassan Bacchus, Alex Bentley, Tash Hassan (Steven Demetriou 79), Tommy Tejan-Sie, Billy Bingham, Alfie Wren (Tony Martin 79), Daniel Charge, Kwesi Appiah.
