Fahad Nyanja’s late goal gave the Tons the derby spoils at Mile End Stadium.
Nyanja struck seven minutes from time to seal the points for the visitors, following their heartbreaking FA Cup penalty shoot-out defeat at Bowers in midweek, as they moved up to seventh place in the table.
Tower Hamlets boss AJ Olatunbosun will look for his men to bounce back when they travel to Takeley on Tuesday.
