A strong second-half display saw Mansfield Town ease past Dagenham & Redbridge to earn their first home win back in the Football League.

Sam Clucas put the hosts ahead in a dire first period, heading in after John Dempster flicked on a free-kick.

The Stags stepped up the pace after the break and deservedly led 2-0 when keeper Chris Lewington fumbled Jamie McGuire's hopeful long-range strike.

And Matt Rhead sealed victory, tapping home a superb Calvin Andrew back-heel.

The Daggers drop to 19th in the League Two table while Mansfield move up to ninth place.
