U's knocked out of Johnstone's Paint Trophy by Dagenham
Colchester United were beaten 4-1 at Dagenham and Redbridge tonight to go out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the first round stage.
It looked as though the U's were on their way to victory at Victoria Road, after captain Brian Wilson curled in a free-kick just before half-time to give them the lead.
But the tie was turned on its head in the second half, as Dagenham scored four goals.
Former U's winger Medy Elito headed in Dagenham's equaliser and just after Magnus Okuonghae's red card for two bookable offences, Brian Saah tapped Dagenham ahead from two yards.
Abu Ogogo put Dagenham further ahead with 11 minutes to go and when substitute Louis Dennis coolly finished from Zavon Hines' pass with five minutes remaining, it was all over for Colchester.
