Wayne Burnett's men had lost their previous three league and cup fixtures, but three points on Saturday saw them leap-frog their opponents in the table courtesy of goals from Zavon Hines and Luke Howell.
The Daggers went ahead after just eight minutes thanks to a hotly-contested penalty. Hines tumbled under Phil Edwards' challenge, though the visiting players claimed contact was minimal.
However, referee David Phillips gave the spot-kick and Hines smashed home his sixth goal of the season.
Medy Elito almost doubled the lead when he fizzed a shot inches wide, before Burton rallied before the interval.
The Daggers doubled their lead in the 54th minute when Hines' free-kick was clinically headed home from eight yards out by Howell.
Ian Sharps missed Burton's best chance of a late consolation goal when he drilled a shot just wide.
