Dagenham manager John Still praised midfielder Matthew Saunders for scoring a stunning free-kick to secure a 1-0 win over Bradford.
In an even game, Saunders' moment of magic after 71 minutes was enough to earn Daggers back-to-back wins and take them out of the bottom two.
And Still was especially pleased that his recent recruit has delivered after having to wait six months for his signature.
Still said: "The goal was worthy of winning a very tight game. It was a fantastic goal. He's got terrific quality. He was a player we wanted to sign at the start of the season, but he got injured.
"That's how it's been for us this year, I could write a book on it but we just have to get on with it. At the moment we're able to keep picking fit players. We've reorganised the back four and done some work with them and they look very solid.
"At the moment it's okay, but between now and the end of the season there will be tough games and we have to maintain this level of performance. We're on decent form and we just have to maintain that and, if we do, there are enough games for us to get points from."
