Ten-man Dagenham and Redbridge held on to secure a thrilling win over Oxford in League Two.

Sam Williams headed the visitors in front, while James Constable wasted two good chances to level the scores.

Luke Howell tapped in for 2-0, Tom Craddock pulled one back with a fine volley, but Luke Wilkinson doubled the advantage again with a powerful header.

Craddock capitalised on a poor back-pass to net his second and Kevin Maher was sent off, but the Daggers held on.

Maher was shown two yellow cards, his first came when he felled Constable after 20 minutes and then a foul on Peter Leven with just over 20 minutes left saw him sent off.
