Accrington boss John Coleman hopes his side can now start looking up the table after they made it four league games without a loss by beating Dagenham 3-0.
Craig Lindfield scored his first league goal of the season and substitute Padraig Amond scored a late double in the 82nd and 83rd minutes to inflict an eighth straight league loss on Daggers.
"We are on a run and we have got to try and win as many games as we can between now and Christmas and get to 50 points as soon as possible and then maybe we can start looking up the table," said the Reds boss, whose side now occupy 17th place in npower League Two.
"We had a bad October - which seems to happen every year - but now we have got to seize any opportunities which we can as we were drawing a lot which can drag you down. I was pleased with the result but not really with what I have seen.
"I feel sorry for Dagenham boss John Still as he is a great manager and, we haven't had much luck this season but we got ours, and he didn't have any.
"We played well in the first half but, at 1-0, we then rode our luck as they battered us and we caught them on the break to score the second and then the third made it safe."
