TEN-man Stanley travelled back up north having grabbed all three points after a superb battling performance.
Stanley had suffered a major blow when Andy Procter was given his marching orders after just half-an-hour, but they rolled up their sleeves to keep matters level at half-time.
They took the game to the Daggers in the second-half and their reward came just after the hour mark when Paul Mullin's close-range strike deservedly put them ahead.
The home side couldn't break down the Stanley rearguard and their frustration showed towards the end when Dagenham's Tim Cole was dismissed for violent conduct following a touchline scuffle.
The Reds kept their heads though, and held on for a fine victory.
