Ten-man Dagenham battled to a draw at high-flying Burton despite being down a man down for most of the second half.

Dagenham took the lead on the stroke of half-time as Lawson D'Ath lashed a 20-yard shot high into the net.

The visitors had Jack Connors dismissed for picking up a second yellow card, and Albion's equaliser came minutes later when substitute Billy Kee fired a shot into the bottom corner.

Burton's Robbie Weir hit the post late on but the Daggers held on for a point.

Burton Albion assistant manager Kevin Summerfield told BBC Radio Derby:

Post-match: Burton assistant Summerfield

"Before the game, we talked about how important it was to get the first goal. It's something we haven't done particularly well for most of the season.

"You must also give credit to the opposition. We've watched them quite a bit in the last couple of weeks and they're a really resilient team. They're a lot tougher than they were last season, they've got a better system to play than they had and they've some character about them.

"Once they got the first goal, they had something to hang onto. Possibly we were allowed back into the game when they went down to ten men, but we've come out with a draw and our run's still going, so it could be a very important point come the end of the season."
