Match ends, Gateshead 1, Dagenham and Redbridge 0.
Danny Johnson scored his sixth goal in five games as Gateshead beat Dagenham and Redbridge at the International Stadium.
The hosts started brightly with Wes York's fine solo run and dipping shot hitting the crossbar.
In a pulsating first half, Craig Robson broke up the other end and rattled the post.
After the break, Johnson prodded in James Bolton's cross at the near post to edge Gateshead in front.
John Still's men pressed for a leveller, but it never arrived.
Substitute Jordan Maguire-Drew caused the home defence difficulty when he came on, but was just wide with two efforts.
