Rovers triumphed 2–0 over a struggling Dagenham & Redbridge side in what was only the fourth ever competitive match between the clubs. The Pirates' inconsistent form in the early part of the 2011–12 season continued, with this victory following two consecutive defeats.

This was Rovers' first home win on a Saturday since beating Oldham Athletic 1–0 on 19 February 2011, over seven months earlier.

Both of the goals for The Gas came in the second half. The first from Joe Anyinsah after 50 minutes, followed by a Matt Harrold penalty in the 90th minute, awarded after Harrold was brought down in the area by Abu Ogogo. The Daggers included former Rovers loanee Richard Rose on their bench, but he was not used during this game.
