Southend took bragging rights over rivals Dagenham by easing to a 3-1 win at Victoria Road.

Ryan Leonard restored the visitors' lead after Ayo Obileye cancelled out Joe Pigott's opener, and Barry Corr's penalty wrapped up the points. Blues took the lead after 16 minutes when Pigott traded passes with Ben Coker, went past Scott Doe and fired beyond goalkeeper Liam O'Brien. It did not take Daggers long to respond, though, as six minutes later Obileye scored his second goal for the club. Billy Bingham's free-kick to the back post was met by the central defender and he headed past the returning Daniel Bentley to equalise. With half-time approaching Phil Brown's team went back in front when Leonard volleyed past O'Brien from 35 yards out. The second period got off to a bad start for Daggers too as Damian Batt blocked Luke Prosser's header with his hands and a penalty was given. Corr stepped up and converted to put Southend two goals to the good, and it might have been more had the visitors not wasted some late opportunities.
