York boss Gary Mills has a near full-strength squad to choose from.

Mills, who has no new injury or suspension problems, is hoping defender Chris Doig can shake off the knock which kept him out of last week's draw at Bradford, while midfielder John McReady (shoulder) and right-back Lanre Oyebanjo (thigh) remain the only absentees through injury.

Mills has plenty of options available, with strikers Michael Coulson and midfielder Paddy McLaughlin hoping to return to the starting line-up after dropping to the bench at Bradford.

Forward Oli Johnson and midfielder Jonathan Smith are also pushing for recalls, but Mills is expected to retain Danny Kearns, on loan from Peterborough, Scott Kerr, back from a long-term knee injury and Matty Blair in his midfield.

The Minstermen are chasing their first league win in four matches and their first home league success in five.

Billy Bingham continues to miss out for Dagenham.

The midfielder was a late withdrawal for last weekend's 2-1 win at Chesterfield due to injury and played no part in Wednesday night's dramatic Essex Senior Cup defeat to non-league Concord Rangers.

Matt Saunders replaced Bingham at the Proact Stadium and following the victory, which extended the Daggers' unbeaten run to five league games, is again likely to line up amid an unchanged XI at York.

Long-term absentee Kevin Maher was included in the matchday 18 against the Spireites before playing 90 minutes against Concord in midweek, and the midfielder is finally ready for first-team involvement after his lengthy foot troubles.

Midfielder Danny Green parted company with the club by mutual consent earlier this week.
