George Sessions provides player ratings following the 1-0 defeat.

Chris Zebroski scored in the 90th minute to consign Wayne Burnett’s side to another loss at home to Newport County, despite an encouraging performance at Victoria Road.

Check out our scores and let us know if you agree.

Mark Cousins (7) – Daggers first choice keeper didn’t have much to do but dealt with most things impressively. No chance with the winner.

Damian Batt (6) – Right-back was dependable in defence again but failed to get involved with attacks down the right.

Scott Doe (7) – Another solid performance from central defence who has only recently regained his position in the starting eleven. He made some excellent tackles.

Brian Saah (7) – Experienced defender battled well with County’s Zebroski but wasn’t close enough to forward for winning goal.

Jack Connors (6) – Left-back’s passing wasn’t up to usual standard. He rushed several long balls and gave away possession too many times.

George Porter (7) – He should have given Daggers the lead after nine minutes but fired into the side netting, despite that winger was one of most threatening players for hosts.

Joss Labadie (6) – Central midfielder was forced off just before half time with hamstring pull but had put in typical competitive display beforehand.

Abu Ogogo (6) – Captain was impressive and appeared to be on top of his game but was shown red card ten minutes from time after clashing with County’s Lee Minshull and it eventually cost his side.

Ashley Hemmings (6) – Winger worked hard and was a threat but visitors dealt better with him after the break.

Ade Yusuff (7) – Energetic display from forward, who worked increasingly hard. Unfortunate not to win his side a penalty after one of his many mazy runs.

Ashley Chambers (6) – Chambers showed his versatility by supporting Yusuff up front and worked hard but couldn’t get on end of any opportunities.


Billy Bingham, for Labadie 45. (6) – Tidy display from midfielder, he was unfortunate to suffer dislocated finger following Ogogo’s sending off but battled well.

Jamie Cureton, for Hemmings 72. (8) – Experienced forward showed his class when on the pitch. He had three outstanding efforts and so unlucky not to score with strike that hit crossbar. Man of the match despite just a cameo appearance.

Andre Boucaud, for Porter 82.
