Wrexham 1-0 Dagenham & Redbridge

National League

Bryan Hughes' reign as Wrexham manager got off to a winning start with victory over Dagenham & Redbridge.

After a goalless first half, substitute Stuart Beavon scored the only goal of the game with 20 minutes remaining, finishing from close range.

Liam Gordon missed the best chance for the Daggers early in the second half as Wrexham looked the most likely to score again late on.

Wrexham move up to third with victory; Dagenham drop one place to 14th.

Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes said: "We could have made it easier for ourselves but the players did what I asked of them, I wanted to see that unified approach, and late on that was in abundance.

"Teams are going to come here, stifle us and sit behind the ball, but we need players who can come on and make an impact and that's what happened today."
