Boss Gary Johnson admitted: "We were good in the first-half, but in the second-half we lacked that quality, that Dagenham had.

"We had to earn the result, as our keeper had to make some great saves - one was fantastic. But, Dagenham had too many shots.

"We didn't have all that many shots, as we didn't create too many opportunities. However, I would like to see the penalty incident again."

Johnson concluded: "It was a good, hard fought point."
