Dagenham extended their winning run to three matches in all competitions with a narrow 1-0 National League victory over struggling Dover.
The home side were reduced to 10 men eight minutes before the break when former Dagenham defender Joshua Passley was sent off for a foul on Darren McQueen.
Angelo Balanta came close to opening the scoring on the brink of half-time but his effort was blocked.
The visitors took advantage at the start of the second half as Balanta headed home substitute Myles Weston’s cross – from the edge of the box – at the far post to give them lead.
That goal proved enough for maximum points to hand Dover a fourth-successive league defeat at the bottom of the table.
