Dagenham & Redbridge nabbed a 1-1 draw away to National League South outfit Maidstone United thanks to a goal from substitute Joan Luque.
An 86th minute striker from the Spanish native cancelled out a 12th minute penalty from Justin Amaluzor at the Gallagher Stadium.
The visitors got off to a strong start but a goal from Angelo Balanta in the fourth minute was flagged down for offside.
