DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still hailed his side's welcome return to winning ways as a 'typical Dagenham performance,' writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
On-loan striker Jamie Guy scored the winner after 25 minutes as Daggers ended a run of six games without a win.
The victory also ensured that the Victoria Road club have now gone 10 league games unbeaten on their travels, their last defeat coming back at Shrewsbury Town on November 25.
"It was a typical Dagenham performance, everyone worked as hard as they can and did as best as they could," said the boss.
"We ground out a more than decent result and I thought we did okay.
"It was a really difficult pitch to play on, but in the first half we adapted really well.

"After the break, they hit the bar with one effort, but didn't really put us under too much pressure."
It was Louis Dodds who saw his effort rebound off the woodwork, but Daggers could have added to their tally, only for Sam Saunders to shoot over, while Doug Loft saw an effort saved by Joe Anyon.
"What impressed me was the way we attacked, we had a focal point in Jamie Guy," added the Daggers boss.
"We have missed that with Paul Benson out, as there is no-one for the ball to go to, so we can play off them.
"Jamie gives us that point, he is the highest up the pitch and he took his goal well. Whenever we crossed into the box, we always had him in there."
Daggers: Roberts 6, Foster 7, Griffiths 7, Arber 7, Okuonghae 7, Saunders 6, Loft 6, Taiwo 6, Ritchie 7, Strevens 6, Guy 8 (Southam 84).
Att: 4,090 (inc 51 away).
