Dagenham & Redbridge enjoyed another comfortable Saturday in the National League with a 2-0 success at Guiseley.

Having beaten Southport 3-0 on the opening weekend, Daggers were not under much threat at Nethermoor Park and did enough to win.

Chris Assombalonga headed home his first goal for the club in the fifth minute, while Oliver Hawkins nodded in a corner 14 minutes from time for the second.

The only negative was that Daggers should have won this game by a far greater margin – let’s hope goal difference does not prove crucial at the end of the season.

Elliot Justham (7) – Another easy Saturday in goal for the stopper and his kit probably didn’t even need a wash afterwards! Credit to the ex-Luton Town man for his distribution, though, which has been impressive so far.

Curtley Williams (7) – Spent more time in the Lions’ half than his own and apart from being beaten once by Oli Johnson in the opening 10 minutes, defended his flank well.

Scott Doe (6.5) – One or two shaky moments, but, like Justham, was never truly tested and the skipper had a comfortable afternoon in west Yorkshire.

Craig Robson (7) – Looking more composed as the games progress and enjoyed a good battle with Guiseley forward Michael Rankine.

Joe Widdowson (7) – Like Williams, spent more time in attack than in defence and appears to be forming a good understanding with Fejiri Okenabirhie on the left.

Andre Boucaud (7) – Has really impressed me so far this term. Trinidad & Tobago international has shown far more energy so far and has looked good in possession, let’s hope that hasn’t cursed it!

Matt Robinson (7) – Helped Daggers control the match with their midfield dominance and provided the defence with a good shield.

Chris Assombalonga (8) – An absolute workhorse down the right. His goal came early on, but the subsequent display was worthy of it.

Luke Guttridge (7.5) – Tried to slot the attackers in with intricate through balls, but at times it didn’t look like they were on the same wavelength.

Fejiri Okenabirhie (8) – Great play down the left led to the opener and had Lions right-back Danny East’s number throughout. The ex-Harrow Borough winger has shown promising signs so early in the season.

Oliver Hawkins (7.5) – Has improved dramatically from last term and is really growing into the role of being a target man. Hopefully his header is the first of many goals this season.
