Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still praised his side's work ethic as they beat Stevenage to take a step closer to the Conference title.
Late goals from Ben Strevens and Dave Rainford gave the Daggers a 2-0 win to extend their lead over Oxford at the top of the table to 12 points.
Still told BBC Radio Essex: "It was a terrific win. Our performance was very committed, determined and very gritty.
"We wore them down and the second-half performance was first-class."
