Dag & Red   3 - 0   Lincoln City

Jon Nurse scored twice as Dagenham & Redbridge maintained top spot in League Two with a victory that heaped the pressure on Lincoln boss Peter Jackson.

Nurse put the Daggers ahead when he burst through the defence to blast the ball past Lincoln goalkeeper Rob Burch.

The striker and Stuart Thurgood both then hit the crossbar, before Danny Green curled a beauty into the corner.

Nurse then prodded home Mark Arber's header for a third, with Rene Howe's shot wide the closest Lincoln came.


Dagenham and Redbridge first-team coach Wayne Burnett:

"We've got some really good players at this club - I thought our performance was exceptional.

"We really got at them, we really attacked them and we got three good goals. It could have been more.

"Jon Nurse was exceptional - we worked incredibly hard and was tough to pick up. He was unlucky not to get a hat-trick."

Lincoln City manager Peter Jackson told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"We got beat 3-0 and it could have been double that. I can't defend my team, it was an awful performance and the fans deserved better.

"The second half was one of the longest 45 minutes I've had in football for a long time and it's hard to take.

"The reaction of the fans I can totally understand, they vented their frustration and the pressure is on me now to get results.

"If we can't prove them wrong then I might not be here come Christmas, but we have to react and not go out like they did today where they looked as though they didn't care."
