Seven minutes later a long throw from Ling caused problems in the Bromley box, eventually falling to Okenabirhie who fired well over the bar and into the stands.

Another chance for the Daggers in the 40th minute as Matt Robinson found an unmarked Lokko in the box, but he is unable to connect with the ball.

Lokko once again found himself unmarked in the box and headed the ball into the top left from a Andre Boucaud cross from the left side to make it 3-1 in the final minute of the first-half.

Dagenham started the second-half where they left off and dominated the possession.

It soon turned into more chances for the home side as the visitors struggled to with stand the pressure and the ball fell to Fejiri Okenabirhie who rocketed a shot off the post from inside the box.

In the same minute Ferrier fired over the bard after being teed up following a great run from Whitely.

Whitely went close as he drove straight up the middle of the pitch and curled a shot over the bar in the sixty eigth minute.

They kept piling on the pressure as Ferrier broke clear with pace, but delayed and centred the ball to Okenabirhie who loost control of the ball inside the box.

Daggers Ferrier added to his side lead as he rolled off a defender in the middle of the box and slotted home a shot to make it 4-1 in the seventy fourth minute.
