Dagenham & Redbridge moved up to 13th in the National League table with victory over Dorking.

They were given an early boost thanks to an own goal, with Inih Effiong and Josh Hare adding further efforts either side of the break to seal all three points.

Only four minutes had been played when a mistake by the Dorking keeper gave possession to Freddie Sears and his ball across the face of goal was turned into his own net by a home defender.

Sears then had a chip turned over the crossbar by Harrison Male, but the home side were back on level terms on 13 minutes when Harry Ottaway netted with a stunning effort.

Play was held up after Lewis Page and Jimmy Muitt clashed heads midway through the first half, with Page forced off soon after and replaced by Myles Weston.

And Daggers regained the lead when Effiong pounced on a loose ball in the home defence and smashed home.

The visitors went close to a third in first-half stoppage time as Male saved well from Sears, with Dorking emerging for the second half in orange shirts.

And Gallagher fired a half volley just wide on 52 minutes, before Frank Vincent had a shot blocked for Daggers and Male saved a header by Sears from an Iffiong cross.

Vincent was shown a yellow card for diving, before Justham saved well from Ottaway midway through the second half.

And Vincent then forced a good save from Male, before Effiong sent a curling effort just wide of the mark on 71 minutes.

Weston beat his man and crossed from the left for Effiong to send a looping header jsut over the target moments later, with Vincent replaced by David Longe-King in the second Daggers change.

And Daggers grabbed their third on 78 minutes when a superb cross from Weston was headed in at the far post by Hare.

Another good move ended with Josh Rees dragging the ball back for Effiong, whose shot was saved well by Male on 87 minutes.
