Striker Joe White nabbed a brace for Dagenham & Redbridge as they lost by the odd goal in seven away to Stevenage in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

Daggers made the short trip to the League Two club’s Bragbury End training ground, with both sides using the game to give members of their squad much-needed minutes.

Among those to start for the Essex club was Matt Robinson, who continued his recovery from a broken leg, having been an unused substitute at the weekend.

Also starting for Daggers, who were managed by assistant Terry Harris, was Luke Pennell.

The defender has yet to feature in the first-team this term after suffering an ACL injury in pre-season, but stepped up his return against Boro.

Daggers were winning 2-1 at the end of the first half against Stevenage, with White, who also struck for loan club Wealdstone on Saturday, nabbing both goals.

However, after making a host of changes throughout the second period, the Victoria Road outfit went on to lose 4-3.

Daggers: Cousins, Ling, Symes, Pennell, Howells, Hyde, Brown, Robinson, Mongoy, Barnwell, White
