Cambridge maintained their unbeaten start to 2015 with a 1-1 draw against Dagenham, who climb out of the League Two relegation zone on goal difference.
The U's, who drew with Manchester United in the FA Cup on Friday, took the lead after 23 minutes. Ryan Donaldson's corner was flicked by Michael Nelson to Cameron McGeehan, who swept home his third goal in two league starts.
Tom Elliott had earlier gone close, charging down goalkeeper Mark Cousins' clearance and seeing the ball drop just wide of the post.
The Daggers had scored just once in their last seven games but improved that record in the 61st minute as they drew level, Ashley Hemmings nodding in from Andre Boucard's free-kick from the left. Rhys Murphy fired just over moments later.
They had struggled to test Chris Dunn prior to that with Billy Bingham and Jamie Cureton off target and Murphy being denied by a fine Richard Tait block.
McGeehan twice went close for the U's with free-kicks, while Nelson's header was swept away from underneath the crossbar.
