Gaving Gunning is a doubt for this fixture, after going off on Tuesday night with a broken nose and fractured eye socket. Jamie Grimes will most likely come in to replace the injured defender, after he put in a battling performance on Tuesday.
Kabongo Tshimanga, who recorded his 11th goal of the season against Eastleigh, will be looking to add to his tally.
Jim Kellermann limped off injured on Tuesday and the midfielder will be hoping he has fully recovered in time for the game.
Jeff King is one yellow card away from suspension, meaning if the defender picks up a booking in the fixture, he will miss the next league match.
Name: Dagenham & Redbridge
Nicknames: The Daggers
Stadium: Chigwell Construction Stadium

The club have floated around the lower leagues for several years. They dropped out of League Two back in 2016, after ten successful years in the Football League. They have competed in the National League ever since, with one play-off campaign that was unsuccessful.
Dagenham will be looking to gain promotion back to the Football League within the next few years. They will be hoping for a successful season this term and they have got off to a good start, with the club currently occupying a play-off position.
