CHRIS Haigh put in a man of the match performance as Oxford City extended their unbeaten run to six games in Vanarama National League.

The goalkeeper made a series of crucial stops to earn the Hoops a 0-0 draw at home to Dagenham & Redbridge.

The visitors almost took the lead from a corner, however Josh Ashby produced a goal line clearance to thwart Aidan Francis-Clarke’s header.

The best chance of the first half fell to Daggers midfielder Josh Rees, whose shot from 10 yards was parried brilliantly by Haigh.

A fantastic turn from Lincoln City loanee Charley Kendall freed space to play through Ryan Hill, who went through one-on-one with Haigh.

Luckily for the Hoops, the keeper superbly turned the shot onto the post.

The game then opened up, with Ashby having a go from the edge of the penalty area, forcing a good save out of Elliot Justham to tip the ball over the crossbar.

With just seconds to go in the game, Haigh was at it again.

The ball was cut back to Kendall, whose effort looked certain to nestle in the back of the net, however Haigh somehow managed to claw the ball away from the top corner.

The draw leaves City 15th in the National League ahead of the trip to Eastleigh on Tuesday night.
