Dagenham manager John Still is set to name an unchanged side.

Still saw the Daggers continue their fine recent form with a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday which saw them move to within a point of safety.

Left-back Oluwafemi Ilesanmi completes a two-match ban after he was dismissed in the last minute of the draw at Leyton Orient last week so Damien McCrory will continue after he recovered from a twisted ankle.

Winger Damian Scannell pulled his hamstring 10 days ago but returned to face Wednesday and will continue, while Oliver Lee - son of former England midfielder Robert - will be included after he signed on-loan from West Ham.

On-loan Bristol City striker John Akinde is back in training after a long-term groin problem but is not yet ready to make his Daggers debut.

Still's men will be looking to extend their six-match unbeaten run.

Chris Wood returns to the Brighton squad.

The on-loan West Brom teenager missed Saturday's 2-1 win over Swindon as he was on international duty with New Zealand.

Spanish frontman Fran Sandaza was handed a rare start in Wood's absence and he could drop out against the Daggers.

Fellow striker Ashley Barnes remains sidelined with an ankle knock but is expected to resume training later this week.

Centre-half Adam El-Abd is close to returning from a hamstring injury but will not be risked at Victoria Road so Tommy Elphick continues at the back.

Midfielder Jamie Smith is still missing with a foot injury and full-back Jim McNulty is out for the season after ankle surgery.

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
