Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still says it is a "fairytale" to see his side at the top of the League Two table.
The Daggers went top after Mark Arber scored the only goal of the game at Accrington.
"To be honest, for us to be talked about in the mix for the top spots is a dream and fairytale for us," said Still.
"We've lost a lot of players to bigger clubs in the summer, but we showed grit and determination.
"Any away win is a good one, but in these conditions, with a heavy wet pitch, it was extra special.
"It was a close game. Both keepers have pulled off good saves and then Paul Benson has had a couple of chances and they have hit the post.
"For this club to be top of the league is hard to believe, but we've just got to do our best to stay there."
