Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Accrington Stanley

In-form duo Dagenham and Accrington claimed a share of the spoils in an entertaining draw.

Lee Molyneux missed an early chance for the visitors when he fired straight at Daggers keeper Chris Lewington.

On-loan Ashley Chambers responded for the hosts, twice testing Lewington's opposite number Marcus Bettinelli.

Will Hatfield and Luke Joyce both went close to breaking the deadlock, while the Daggers saw a low drive from Luke Norris fizz just past the post.

The hosts are now unbeaten in seven games while Stanley have now lost just once in their previous six contests.

Accrington manager James Beattie told BBC Radio Lancashire:

Post-match: Accrington manager Beattie

"That's probably our best away performance of the season and it's another standard that we've set.

"The way we played, both defensively and offensively, was tremendous.

"But football's all about sticking the ball in the net and I share the lads' frustrations.

"If that was a boxing match, it would have been stopped."
