However, despite the fact that the hosts had already been relegated from the Vanarama National League, they played their part in an eight-goal thriller at Nethermoor Park which John Still`s visitors eventually came out on top of.
And seven of the goals came in the opening 45 minutes!
Michael Cheek gave the Daggers a 16th minute lead from close range following good work by the in-demand Fejiri Okenabirihie.
Ten minutes later, the Essex side doubled their advantage when Liam Gordon raced through to finish well past Luke Coddington.
But less than a minute later, Alex Purver`s cross sailed over Dagenham `keeper Mark Cousins and into the back of the net.
And then 6 minutes after that, Guiseley were level when James Roberts was hauled to the ground by Luke Pennell.
Roberts` penalty was saved by Cousins but Ellis Hudson reacted quickest to slot in the rebound.
Three minutes later, Cheek bagged his second from close range to restore the Daggers` lead following a mistake by the experienced Sean St Ledger.
But back came the Lions once more to equalise 2 minutes later when Simon Lenighan smashed the ball past Cousins.
Okenabirihie restored the visitors` lead once more a minute before the break from the spot to make it 4-3.
Defences tightened and chances came and went in the second half until Cheek completed his hat-trick after 67 minutes when he pounced on a loose ball after Coddington had parried his initial effort.
