Dagenham boss John Still has virtually a fully-fit squad.

Long-term absentee Matt Saunders finally made his return from an ankle injury to make the bench for Tuesday's creditable 1-1 draw at Port Vale.

That just leaves Kevin Maher (foot) on the sidelines, although the midfielder played 90 minutes in a practice match on Wednesday and is edging ever close to his first-team comeback.

Still has no other injury or suspension concerns and will merely be mulling over his tactical options as the Daggers aim to continue their upturn in form.

Sam Williams, Josh Scott, Dwight Gayle and Brian Woodall are all competing to start up front against a Bradford side who have lost just one of their last six.

Bradford will be without Kyel Reid while another midfield lynchpin, Gary Jones, could also miss out.

Reid was forced out of the midweek draw at Rochdale due to a groin injury and will be sidelined for up to six weeks after scans on Thursday revealed the full severity of damage.

Zavon Hines replaced Reid on Tuesday night, but Garry Thompson provides manager Phil Parkinson with a further option.

Jones missed out in midweek due to a back problem that had caused him discomfort in last weekend's home defeat to Port Vale.

Ricky Ravenhill returned to the side for his first league appearance of the season in place of Jones and is expected to start again if the latter's problem does not relent.

Another midfielder, Ritchie Jones, has fully recovered from his ankle injury, but requires games and is expected to be named among the substitutes.
