Dagenham v Carlisle preview

John Still will be without defender Scott Doe.
Centre-back Doe missed the 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield on Monday with a hamstring strain which has ended his season so Will Antwi will keep his place.
Midfielder Billy Bingham was given a rare start at Huddersfield in a tactical reshuffle but is unlikely to keep his place as Danny J Green is set for his first start on the wing.
A Dagenham defeat coupled with a win for Walsall at home to Charlton would see the Daggers relegated to League Two after just one season in the third tier.
Greg Abbott could name an unchanged side for the fifth successive match.
Midfielder Tom Taiwo shook off a knock in time to play the full 90 minutes in Monday’s home defeat to Leyton Orient and should retain his place in the starting line-up, while Abbott has no new injury or suspension problems.
Abbott has a long list of strikers at his disposal and although first-choice pair Craig Curran and Francois Zoko are expected to resume their partnership, Paddy Madden, Ryan Bowman and Nahki Wells are all pushing for a place in Abbott’s starting line-up.
Winger Ben Marshall, on loan from Stoke, is sidelined with a season-ending ankle ligament injury.
The Cumbrians, who have lost one of their last four league games, currently lie 11th in the table, 11 points adrift of the play-offs.
