|Stats: Dagenham & Redbridge | Cheltenham Town|
In-form Dagenham will check on Scott Doe and Rhys Murphy ahead of their home clash against Cheltenham, but Gavin Hoyte definitely misses out.
Defender Doe missed last Friday's 2-1 win at Accrington and Tuesday's 5-2 Johnstone's Paint Trophy triumph at Southend due to family reasons.
Striker Murphy limped off shortly after half-time in midweek and will be assessed, with Brian Woodall and Josh Scott on standby.
Full-back Hoyte, meanwhile, saw red in the closing stages at Roots Hall - where the Daggers extended their impressive run to just one defeat in 11 - and now starts a three-match suspension.
Cheltenham will be without defender James Wilson.
The 24-year-old Bristol City loanee, who could yet extend his stay with the Robins, has been called up to the Wales squad for their double header with Macedonia and Belgium.
He was due to make his final appearance of his month's loan but he was called up from the standby list by Chris Coleman and his absence could mean a return to the side for the experienced Steve Elliott.
Meanwhile, fellow defender Craig Braham-Barrett is available again having been given the green light last week to return from his ankle injury and the former Macclesfield left-back could feature against the Daggers.
