Chorley 1-0 Dagenham & Redbridge
A 20-yard strike from Alex Newby saw Chorley claim a vital win at home against Dagenham & Redbridge in the National League.
The visitors got the game's first chance on the half hour mark, forcing the Magpies to clear the ball off their own line after Mitch Brundle's shot was saved by Matt Urwin.
Chorley striker Newby then stepped up to put the home side ahead in the 63rd minute, sending his ambitious half-volley flying into the top corner.
Dagenham looked to mount a late fight-back with two efforts from Joan Luque in the last 10 minutes, but Urwin was equal to both.
Chorley move up to 22nd in the table and are now two points from safety.
