Dag & Red v Rotherham preview

Brian Woodall should be back in contention for Dagenham.
The club’s joint-leading scorer with seven goals this term, missed Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat at Torquay due to a recurrence of a recent groin problem.
Fellow forward Josh Scott could make his return on the bench having recovered from a knee injury which has kept him out of late.
Dominic Green is likely to be missing for a few weeks as he continues to struggle with a groin problem, while the midfielder has also seen a doctor this week to undergo tests on his swollen glands.
Peter Gain and Luke Howell (both knee) aim to return in three and four weeks respectively, while Kevin Maher (metatarsal) is set to make his comeback at the start of March.
Striker Sam Williams (knee) remains sidelined until the summer.
Meanwhile, Rotherham midfielder Gareth Evans faces a race to be fit for the clash at Dagenham.
Evans has been struggling in recent weeks with a thigh problem and missed last Saturday’s home defeat to Port Vale but could return to play some part.
Manager Andy Scott threatened to make changes after successive home defeats but recent signing Richard Naylor may have to wait a while longer for his first appearance due to the form of central defenders Michael Raynes and Johnny Mullins.
Scott Griffiths, another recent signing, was substituted during his debut last week but is expected to resume at left-back.
Defender Ryan Cresswell (ankle) and midfielder Mark Bradley (collarbone) are pushing to be included in the squad after recently recovering from injury but goalkeeper Jamie Annerson and defender Luke Foster (both knee) remain long-term absentees.
