The Mariners arrived at Victoria Road without a win in 24 games, a run spanning back to September 19.

Neil Woods' side never really looked like changing that stat either, as apart from a Lee Peacock header in the opening period, Daggers goalkeeper Tony Roberts enjoyed a comfortable afternoon.

Manager John Still made one change to the side that beat Aldershot Town 3-2 on Tuesday night with winger Graeme Montgomery replacing Jon Nurse.

Skipper Mark Arber made his 100th appearance in the centre of defence, while new signing Yoann Folly was among the substitutes.

It was Montgomery who played a major role in the opening goal after 49 minutes, when his inch-perfect cross was headed home by a diving Scott for his 10th of the season.

Nurse came off the bench late on to complete his century of Daggers appearances and Green secured the points with time running out, shooting into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

The win ensures Daggers are ninth in the table now, just two points off Notts County in the play-off places, although the Magpies have three games in hand.

Daggers: Tony Roberts, Abu Ogogo, Damien McCrory, Scott Doe, Abu Ogogo, Danny Green (Wes Thomas 89), Marlon Pack, Peter Gain, Graeme Montgomery (Yoann Folly 64), Paul Benson, Josh Scott (Jon Nurse 81).

Booked: Pack

Subs not used: Chris Lewington, Anwar Uddin, Darren Currie, Romain Vincelot.

Attendance: 2,190.
