Several problems for Dagenham boss John Still to ponder

Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still has several injury concerns ahead of the FA Cup tie against Halifax.

Winger Fejiri Okenabirhie missed the 1-1 draw against Vanarama National League leaders Forest Green as he recovers from a leg injury.

Veteran forward Paul Benson made his first appearance since September 17 as a late substitute at The New Lawns, having been out with a side injury, so will be assessed.

Defender Sam Ling could come back into contention to start, with midfielder Frankie Raymond covering at left-back against Rovers while Luke Pennell and Curtley Williams have been sidelined by knee problems.

Halifax will be without defender Matty Brown as he requires further surgery to resolve a heel problem.

Centre-half Brown, who has not featured this season due to an ankle injury, had been hoping to return to action at Dagenham but will have an operation next week.

Left-back Josh Wilde is expected to shake off a shoulder injury sustained late on in last week's home league defeat to Brackley.

Striker Matty Kosylo came through unscathed after his return from injury last week and is in contention, but defender Scott McManus (cruciate) remains sidelined until after Christmas.
