Abu Ogogo's first goal for Dagenham & Redbridge was enough for the home side to beat Bradford 2-1 at Victoria Road.
The right back swooped to slide the ball into the net from close range after 72 minutes, following up Jon Nurse's cross that spun clear in the area.
The Daggers were in front after just eight minutes when City 'keeper Simon Eastwood failed to gather Danny Green's corner and Paul Benson crashed the ball over the line from close range.
Home 'keeper Tony Roberts saved well from Jamie O'Brien, touching his volley over the bar, but could do nothing to stop Michael Flynn's 25-yard drive arrowing into the bottom corner.
The Daggers had the perfect chance to retake the lead immediately but, after Jon Nurse was brought down in the box, Benson fired the spot kick woefully over the bar.
After the restart, the visitors still threatened and Roberts had to be out bravely to save from Simon Ramsden, but try as they might, they couldn't break through.
