Lee makes league bow
Oliver Lee made his league bow but was a loser on Saturday afternoon while Jordan Spence, Kieron Dyer and Frank Nouble all tasted victory.
Lee was fielded for the first time by Dagenham and Redbridge during his month-long loan but could not stop them slipping to a 2-1 defeat at Exeter City. The 19-year-old midfielder played the full 90 minutes and will hope for more game time as the Daggers sit one point and one place above the League One drop zone, although with at least a game in hand on the four teams below them.
Also in League One, former Hammers defender Chris Powell got a welcome three points in charge of mid-table Charlton Athletic as they ran out 3-1 winners at home to Leyton Orient. Nouble was a last-minute substitute while Dyer was also a replacement for Championship side Ipswich Town in their 2-1 away success at Burnley. The midfielder played the last eleven minutes off the bench.
Staying in the second tier, Spence made it four wins in five appearances for Bristol City with another 90 minutes in their 1-0 home win against Doncaster Rovers. The England Under-21 defender has just extended his stay with City until the end of the season and even came close to his first goal since arriving at Ashton Gate last month.
