Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 Aldershot Town
Corey Whitely scored a late winner to keep Dagenham & Redbridge second in the National League.
Whitely struck with nine minutes left as the visitors were left with nothing to show for their efforts at Victoria Road.
The Daggers nearly took an early lead, but Josh Staunton's header from Whitely's corner rebounded off the crossbar.
The Shots nearly stunned the hosts in the second half when Matt McClure saw a close-range header saved by Elliot Justham.
But Whitely cut inside and swerved an angled shot past Jake Cole for a scarcely-deserved winner.
Substitute Charlie Walker hooked a last-gasp shot against the post, possibly with the aid of Justham's fingertips, but Dagenham held on to retain second place.
