A first half strike from Alfie Potter was enough to earn Oxford United three points against Dagenham and Redbridge.

Potter took advantage of poor Daggers defending and lashed a shot past young goalkeeper Jordan Seabright to give the U's the lead just before half-time.

Dagenham had a great opportunity to level with Mo Sharif late on but he blasted the ball over from close range.

The win was Oxford's first in six games and came on the back of two consecutive defeats.
