Lanre Oyebanjo (knee) and Joe McNerney (knee) are still missing for the Reds while midfielder Simon Walton serves a one-match ban for accumulating five bookings.

The Daggers' only absentee is midfielder Zavon Hines, who has suffered a setback to his troublesome knee injury. 

THE FORM GUIDE                

The Reds have been without a game for two weeks and Mark Yates' side come into the fixture off the back of a disappointing 3-1 loss to Carlisle, in a game that saw Rhys Murphy score his seventh goal of the season.

Relegation threatened Dagenham visit the Checkatrade Stadium having only won two league games all season. They travel to Sussex having drawn 1-1 Whitehawk in the FA Cup last wekeend, with 40-year-old Jamie Cureton on target for the hosts. Their recent league results included a 1-0 win at AFC Wimbledon and 1-1 draw with high-flying Plymouth Argyle.


: "I know (Dagenham manager) Wayne Burnett well. We did our Pro License together and he's a top bloke and I'm sure he will continue to over-achieve there. It will be a hard game but after a couple of bad results for us we have been waiting to get back out there and hopefully put things right."Mark Yates  


As well as meetings in the Conference and FA Trophy, the club have also played twice in the Football League during our debut campaign in 2011-12 in League Two. A crowd of 2,862 saw Reds come from behind to win 3-1 at home in October 2011 thanks to goals from Sergio Torres, Matt Tubbs and Jon-Paul Pittman. The return game in April 2012 ended 1-1 with Charlie Wassmer scoring for the Reds at Victoria Road.
