Dagenham will again be without captain Mark Arber for their final-day home clash of the season.

The centre-back was withdrawn shortly before last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Shrewsbury due to a calf injury.

Michael Spillane subsequently dropped into the heart of defence and fit-again Luke Howell came into midfield, with manager John Still tempted to go with the same line-up against the Pirates.

Meanwhile, it is hoped all four of the Daggers' injured quartet will be fit for the start of pre-season training.

Long-term absentee Sam Williams (knee) has been joining in with training while Jon Nurse (abductor) has started running again as well as other strengthening work.

Kevin Maher (metatarsal) and Matt Saunders (ankle) are also making progress but have a bit more work to do over the coming months.

Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee has no new injury worries for the last game of the season.

Matthew Lund scored the final two goals in last weekend's 5-1 demolition of Accrington but has returned to parent club Stoke following the end of his loan spell with the Pirates to leave a space in the matchday squad.

Striker Chris Zebroski is expected to have to settle for a place among the substitutes once more as his team-mates look to build on a free-scoring performance.

Tom Parkes serves the second game of a three-match suspension, while fellow defender Adam Virgo (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Rovers are searching for a first victory on their travels since overcoming Rotherham 1-0 in February.
