Dagenham again have no new injury or suspension problems as they welcome fellow early-season strugglers Wycombe.

Matt Saunders (ankle) and Kevin Maher (foot) remain the only two absentees but there is positive news for both as they look to make their respective comebacks from long-term injuries.

Saunders got 90 minutes under his belt in a midweek friendly against Stevenage and is only one more practice game away from being considered for first-team selection.

Maher, meanwhile, has resumed full training and will now look to get in a reserve-team game of his own over the coming week as he strives to regain match fitness.

The Daggers remain without a league win this season but will fancy their chances against a Wanderers side who have not tasted success since the opening day.

Caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth is set to hand on-loan goalkeeper Jordan Archer a start when he takes charge for the first time.

Ainsworth has been handed the task of turning around the Chairboys' fortunes after Gary Waddock was dismissed last weekend following a six-game winless streak.

One of Ainsworth's first moves was to borrow Archer on a seven-day emergency loan from Tottenham as Elliot Parish returned to Cardiff following the completion of his loan spell, while Nikki Bull (thigh) and Matt Ingram (knee) remain sidelined.

Ainsworth hopes to have midfielders Joel Grant (hamstring) and Matt Bloomfield (groin) back in contention, insisting that both will be assessed prior to kick-off, while Josh Scowen has been recalled from a loan spell with Eastbourne.

Stuart Lewis spent last Saturday night in hospital as a precaution after taking a blow to his stomach in the loss to AFC Wimbledon, but should be involved.

Fellow midfielder Sam Wood (knee) and striker Dennis Oli (ankle) are missing and, due to the number of players out or recovering from injuries, Ainsworth has not ruled out playing himself.
