Richards bundled the ball home after goalkeeper Chris Lewington failed to hold Scot Bennett's effort, but it still leaves Exeter without a home win since October 5.

The Grecians edged the first half but they almost fell behind when the ball was worked to the left and Luke Norris curled a superb shot against the far post.

The deadlock was broken in the 34th minute when Craig Woodman's cross was headed down by David Wheeler and Tom Nichols was on hand to convert Matt Grimes' scuffed shot.

Exeter had chances to kill the game but did not take them and Dagenham duly equalised after 62 minutes, counter-attacking at pace before Norris curled a fine effort across goal and into the far corner.

Exeter captain Danny Coles was then adjudged to have fouled Adebayo Azeez in the penalty area and Medy Elito scored from the spot, but the Grecians salvaged a point when Richards bundled home from close range late on.
