Dagenham & Redbridge are top of the Vanarama Nation tonight after a 3-1 home win against Neil Aspin’s Gateshead.

1358 witnessed the Daggers going top of the table and it didn’t take long for them to go ahead.

Joe White opened the scoring on 13 minutes before a Kevin Lokko own goal levelled the scores on 24 minutes.

John Still’s side left it until the final 10 minutes to win the game with Morgan Ferrier’s fourth goal of the season and Elliott Romain’s first goal.

Leyton Orient were 4-1 winners over Guiseley at Brisbane Road and they were thankful to a hattrick from their top goalscorer MacAuley Bonne.

Bonne’s first two goals were from the penalty spot late in the first half following Kayode Odejayi’s first goal of the campaign for the Lions.

Matt Harrold made it 3-1 on 65 minutes and Bonne completed his hattrick on 82 minutes to make it 7 goals level with Dave Tarpey who left for Barnet from Maidenhead this week.

4032 fans witnessed Wrexham beating Bromley 2-0 this afternoon with two goals in the second half winning the game for the North Wales side.

Ntumba Massanka now has three goals in four starts for the Dragons.

Sutton United drop to 4th in the league with a 2-0 home defeat by Maidenhead United with their second home defeat in two games.

Ryan Upward and Harld Odametey were on target for Maidenhead, a result which sees them in 7th place in the Vanarama National table.

Shamir Fenelon’s fourth goal of the season was enough to see Aldershot beat Solihull Moors. The win is their third home game of the season but their first win in four games

Dover Athletic were 1-0 winners over Tranmere at Prenton Park in front of the BT Sport cameras courtesy of Ryan Bird’s fourth goal of the season, this time from the penalty spot.

Elliott Durrell put Macclesfield Town ahead at Moss Rose against Woking but Jason Banton, Joe Ward and Inih Effiong were on target for the Cards to seal the points.

Barrow got their second win of the season with a 2-1 home win over Boreham Wood.

Bedsente Gomis put them ahead on 3 minutes but Bruno Andrade’s sixth goal of the season equalised but a minute later Jack Barthram won the game for the Cumbrians. They finished the game with 10 men as Alex-Ray Harvey saw red for the home side.

Ebbsfleet and Eastleigh shared the points with a 2-2 draw. James Constable put the Hampshire side ahead but goals from Jack Powell and Danny Kedwell turned the game around but a goal from Craig McAllister in the final 10 minutes mean a point each.

Torquay are bottom of the table with a 1-1 draw at home to Chester. George Dowling with his first goal of the season put the Devon side ahead but they were denied their first win with a late goal from Ross Hannah for Chester.

Hartlepool United won their first home game of the season with a 3-1 win over Maidstone United.

Keith Watson, Jonathan Franks and Connor Simpson on target for Hartlepool but a late goal from Johan ter-Horst was not enough to deny them victory.
