Paul Benson netted the winner as Dagenham & Redbridge closed the gap on leaders Oxford with a win at Stafford.
The Daggers took the lead on 22 minutes when Nathan Talbott was adjudged to have fouled Craig Mackail-Smith, and Glenn Southam converted the penalty.
But Stafford were level on the stroke of half-time when Tony Roberts' save from Robin Gibson's lob fell to Neil Grayson who scored.
Just before the hour Cliff Akurang's cross was slid home by Benson.
