Referee:

Rotherham United lost their first game in six this afternoon to a rampant Dagenham and Redbridge side at the LB Barking and Dagenham Stadium.

From the first minute to the last the home side dominated although they took the lead on five minutes from a defensive mistake when young Josh Morris seemed to be in a world of his own which allowed Jake Reed to cut-back for Dwight Gayle who smashed the ball under Andy Warrington into the back of the net. On ten minutes Ian Sharps had the chance to equalise for the Millers from a Michael O'Connor corner but his header went over the bar. At the other end Andy Warrington saved from Matthew Saunders with Sharps and Mark Bradley making clearances from the resulting corners. On sixteen minutes Chris Lewington, in the Daggers goal, had to be on his toes and made a great save from a Lee Frecklington shot and, at the other end, Craig Morgan and Sharps cleared balls from Gayle. On thirty-five minutes Oluwafemi Ilesanmi  walked past Millers loanee debutant Luke Rooney, taking the ball off him in the process and cued Luke Howell up to put the ball in the net from eighteen yards out and a few minutes later Saunders saw an effort go just wide.

After a lack lustre performance in the first half by the Millers the second half started exactly the same with Medy Elito finding himself in plenty of room to shoot just over five minutes in. Frecklington had a half shot for the Millers soon afterwards which was easily blocked which Lewington saving easily from an O'Connor corner a minute later. Warrington did the same at the other end saving the ball from a Saunders corner while Jake Reed saw a shot sail over the bar. Howell then had a shot that went high and wide while Warrington made a fine point blank save moments later from Gayle and then again he was there to save with his legs from Spillane. Eventually the Daggers third goal did come on seventy-five minutes after  Ilesanmi  fed Howell who just had to tap the ball in for his second goal. The Millers did have a go and Lewington had to race out of his goal to stop Daniel Nardiello, on for Odejayi, from scoring. At the other end Warrington again came into his own when he made a good save from Gayle only to see the ball fall to Elito who drilled home for number four. Five minutes later Gayle got free of his marker (again) and Warrington again stopped the shot going in while Mark Bradley headed a Ben Pringle free-kick towards goal only to see Abu Ogogo head the ball off the line. In the first minute of time added on the Millers misery was complete when Gayle headed home the Daggers fifth goal. Nardiello had a shot in the final minute of the game but it was cleared to safety as referee Roger East blew for full-time.

Not a lot to sat except what a shambles from start to finish.

I think it says it all when we lost five-nil and ANDY WARRINGTON is still my Man of the Match
