CITY 1 DAGENHAM 1
James Hanson came off the bench to scramble a late equaliser and save City from a fourth home defeat on the bounce.
It was a frustrating night against a team who have still never lost at Valley Parade.
Dagenham's jinx looked set to continue even after Sam Williams missed a 49th-minute penalty.
Luke Howell then fired the Daggers in front before Hanson finished from close range after a cross by Zavon Hines.
City almost then won it but Nahki Wells, another sub as Phil Parkinson made six changes, saw his shot blocked on the line by Abu Ogogo.
Wells shot cleared off the line by Ogogo.
Dagenham scrambling for their lives as City press for a second.
Alamo time in the Dagenham box. City think they can win this now
HANSON 1-1. Hines low cross touched on by Wells and Hanson finishes at far post.
Connell tries ambitious chip but goes over bar. Dagenham replace Strevens with Bingham, nine minutes left.
And he's replacing Darby.
Connell ready to come on.
There's a shot from Reid but Lewington safely watches it fly wide.
City need to respond but no evidence so far. That goal has really knocked the stuffing out of them.
1-0 to Dagenham. Strevens cuts into box, ball breaks for HOWELL who shoots into bottom corner.
Double sub as Hanson and Wells come on for Gray and Thompson midway through the half.
Davies almost converts as City build up the pressure with a third corner.
Hines wins a corner and McArdle again goes close with shot deflected just over angle of bar and post.
Williams tries to make up for botched penalty with curler wide of far post.
Crowd is 10,006 with 58 from Dagenham. Not the big crowd that City had been hoping for on the back of Wembley.
Gray does some juggling back to goal and his shot on the turn just beats the post.
Whole crowd now stand in honour of the 56.
We've got our chance now, they missed lets get a win #bcafc— @meggwhitehead 27 February 2013
Kop launch "Always Remember" chant as the game hits the 56th minute.
Nelson's header from Jones free-kick clawed away by Lewington under pressure.
Hines flattened by Ilesanmi, who gets rightly booked. Foul happens right in front of City dug-out and Parky quick to vent his anger.
Williams steps up to take - and MISSES. Wide right, terrible penalty!
Penalty for Dagenham as Reid runs into back of Wilkinson.
We're off again for the second half. No changes yet for either side but City need to make an impact.
First home game I've missed since I was 13 #gutted #BCAFC— @billybingham3 27 February 2013
Wilkinson just gets a toe in to dispossess Gray as he chases Thompson's header. Then Lewington smothers right on the edge of the box.
Long throw by Darby into danger zone but Dagenham clear their lines again.
Thompson looking a handful and forces a corner. Hint of panic in Daggers' defence as Lewington shouts at his own players.
McArdle has been City's unlikely goal threat so far but he completely misses his header as Jones floats another free-kick into the box.
Darby pushes forward to tee up Jones but the skipper's 30 yarder is off target. But this is better from City.
Jones ball over the top looks to release Thompson but Doe is across in nick of time.
McArdle gets head to corner but flicks across goal.
Nelson flicks on Darby's long free-kick for Gray but his shot on the turn is blocked.
First sound from the away section. Dagenham will be quite happy to get to half an hour at 0-0.
@ParkerTandA yeah we're definitely going up with our best players on the bench!— @bantamross 27 February 2013
Thompson panics Lewington into slicing his clearance out for throw and sparks another chorus from the crowd.
Dagenham have two men on Reid every time he gets on the ball.
Game being played at a frantic tempo.
Jones tries to burst through but Hines puts too much on the pass.
On sunday opposition had about 33 thousand fans, tonight they have about 30, at a push 40 haha #backdowntoearth #bcafc— @sam1kenny 27 February 2013
First corner for City but Dagenham scramble it clear.
Doyle gets his ninth yellow card of the season for flattening Howell.
Even the subs coming out for a warm-up get applauded
Saunders tries a shot that is so wide it ends up being kept in by Elito on the left wing.
The crowd break out into a flag-waving chorus of Stand up if you love City.
Estimate of Dagenham away following looks about 50. But they are nearly celebrating as Elito receives Saunders pass and whips in fierce shot that McLaughlin tips on to the bar. Good save from the City keeper.
Reid free-kick flicked back into box by Nelson and McArdle's stretching volley flies just over bar into Kop.
Nothing to report so far but the atmosphere is cracking. Fans clearly up for it.
Dagenham give City guard of honour as they walk out. Greeted by Wembley flags and plenty of noise.
Plenty of flags to greet #bcafc arrival... http://t.co/SUblNtFHAM— @ParkerTandA 27 February 2013
Claret and Amber tune thumps out again. Last heard at Wembley ...
Paul Jewell here at least. Small crowd it seems #bcafc— @cobblers65 27 February 2013
Guy just got on the bus with Claret & Amber pants on #respect #bcafc— @JayPbb 27 February 2013
City have lost their last three home games in the league. But for those looking for an omen, the last win on Boxing Day was also a Wednesday!
Erm.. I hope those 33,000 Bradford fans will be at VP tonight to watch them play Dagenham.. #bcafc— @buryfchannah 27 February 2013
Can only see the hardcore turning up tonight. I hope we see some goals, chances, corners etc! #bcafc— @itsnotsoccer1 27 February 2013

City begin life after Wembley with several changes for tonight's home clash against Dagenham.
Jon McLaughlin obviously comes in between the posts for the suspended Matt Duke. It is his first league outing since the end of October.
With Ryan Dickson ruled out for the rest of the season, Phil Parkinson solves the left-back dilemma by moving Stephen Darby across from the right.
Rory McArdle returns to fullback duties on that side with Andrew Davies and Michael Nelson together again in the middle.
Wingers Zavon Hines and Kyel Reid are also back while Andy Gray, who was ineligible for the Capital One Cup, is restored up front alongside Garry Thompson.
Youngster Jack Bentley is the spare goalkeeper on the bench.
CITY: McLaughlin, McArdle, Nelson, Davies, Darby, Hines, Jones, Doyle, Reid, Thompson, Gray. Subs: Ravenhill, Hanson, Wells, McHugh, Atkinson, Connell, Bentley.
