Goals from Danny Carlton and Stewart Drummond kept Morecambe top of League Two as they beat Dagenham & Redbridge.

Carlton grabbed his fifth goal in three matches when he raced on to Kevin Ellison's pass, ran clear of Mark Arber and fired low into the net.

Drummond made it 2-0 when he finished from 12 yards after Laurence Wilson's cross was parried by Chris Lewington.

Oliver Lee pulled a goal back for the Daggers with a free-kick from 20 yards but Morecambe held on for the victory.
