Match ends, Dagenham and Redbridge 1, Torquay United 0.
Dagenham ended Torquay's mini-resurgence as Angelo Balanta and goalkeeper Elliot Justham earned them a 1-0 win in the National League.
Justham denied Connor Lemonheigh-Evans one on one before at the other end, the returning Matt Robinson fired into the side netting and Will Wright curled a free-kick just wide.
Balanta shot straight at Gulls keeper Lucas Covolan as the half ended goalless, and Scott Boden was just unable to provide a Torquay breakthrough early in the second period before Dagenham's Paul McCallum was denied a penalty.
Torquay sent on debutant Benji Kimpioka, signed earlier in the day on loan from Sunderland, and Josh Umerah in search of a third straight win and the latter almost immediately drew a stunning save from Justham - who was rewarded in full when Balanta broke the deadlock at the other end.
Kimpioka shot wide in stoppage time as Daggers held on for the win.
