York City 3-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

Wes Fletcher netted a second-half brace against Dagenham to help York City secure back-to-back League Two wins for the first time since October.

Abu Ogogo twice went close to nodding the Daggers in front before Ryan Bowman put the hosts ahead with a well placed shot past Chris Lewington.

Fletcher doubled the advantage with a looping cross then found the bottom corner with his 10th goal this term.

Rhys Murphy pounced on a mistake to pull a goal back, but it was too late.

York City boss Nigel Worthington speaks to BBC Radio York following Saturday's 3-1 home win against Dagenham & Redbridge.

"Well performance-wise we're not a million miles from where we were five days ago.

"Results-wise, wins give you a big change in as far as the points and the league positions are concerned.

"But 28 points isn't going to win you anything or get you anywhere so it's got to be the full focus and concentration.

"There's plenty of work left to do to get where we would like to get to."
