John Still is likely to send out the same XI for the third successive match.

Still, who boasts no new injury or suspension concerns, kept faith with the same line-up for last weekend's 1-0 at Wycombe as the one which beat Rochdale 2-1 the week previous.

And despite the disappointment of defeat at Adams Park, Still is expected to go again with an unchanged side.

He does have options should be wish to change things around, with the likes of Josh Scott, Jake Reed, Kevin Maher, Billy Bingham, Louis Dennis and Jake Caprice champing at the bit for involvement.

The Daggers have seen their play-off hopes dampened by five defeats in the last seven games but they remain just five points off the top seven in the league.

Morecambe welcome back Andy Parrish and Andrew Wright.

Parrish sat out last Friday's goalless draw with Cheltenham following his red card during the 2-1 defeat at Plymouth the previous weekend, while fellow defender Wright completed a two-match ban for collecting 10 bookings this season.

Midfielder Andy Fleming is doubtful having sustained a knock to his ankle in the Globe Arena stalemate.

Former Rotherham and Preston forward Chris Holroyd is pushing for a full debut having appeared as a second-half substitute last time out.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley has cautioned his players against getting sucked into a relegation battle - they currently lie 18th, seven points above the drop zone.

"It would be stupid to think 'oh we'll be alright' when we're not that far ahead of the bottom two," Bentley told the Morecambe Visitor.

"The league is that tight. If we go and get a couple of wins we could be challenging at the other end. But if you lose one or two or draw games you think you should win, you can certainly get dragged into it."
