Dagenham & Redbridge picked up a vital three points with a 2-0 win against Hartlepool thanks to a stunning Billy Bingham goal.Pools started strongly and Jack Compton had a volley deflected over the crossbar with seven minutes played before the hosts were forced to bring on substitute goalkeeper Liam O'Brien following an injury to Mark Cousins. Daggers number one Cousins suffered a nasty cut after colliding with the post and was replaced in the 21st minute. A minute later and Wayne Burnett's side took the lead when Ashley Hemmings wonderful cross into the box was sliced into his own net by Hartlepool's Scott Harrison. Pools pushed for an equaliser but it was the Daggers that came closest to adding to the scoreline on the stroke of half-time when Hemmings met Andre Boucaud's corner, with his header crashing against the crossbar. Once again Ronnie Moore's team started strongly in the second half, but a wonderful free-kick settled the match at Victoria Road. Bingham curled the set piece into the top corner of the net and past Scott Flinders to make it 2-0 with 66 minutes gone and that was how it finished.
