Dagenham & Redbridge 0-1 Chesterfield

Eoin Doyle

Eoin Doyle's first-half goal earned victory at Dagenham & Redbridge and kept Chesterfield ahead in the race for the League Two title.

Doyle struck from close range after good work by Tendayi Darikwa to keep Paul Cook's side second, two points behind Scunthorpe with two games left.

Marc Richards should have doubled the lead in the second half but his turn and shot went past the post.

Luke Norris wasted a glorious chance to level but headed wide when unmarked.
