Samuel set for Daggers debut

New loan signing Dominic Samuel is in contention to make his Dagenham debut at home to Fleetwood while Lawson D'Ath also returns from suspension.

Striker Samuel arrived on a one-month deal from Reading on Thursday and goes straight into manager Wayne Burnett's squad to face the Cod Army.

Midfielder D'Ath, also on loan from the Royals, is back in the mix having served a one-match ban in last weekend's disappointing 3-1 defeat at York.

Billy Bingham (knee), Matt Saunders and Jordan Seabright (both ankle) continue to miss out.

Fleetwood could hand a debut to on-loan striker Mikael Mandron.

The 19-year-old this week agreed to join the Cod Army for the rest of the season and, having already played twice in the Barclays Premier League, boss Graham Alexander could throw him straight into the starting line-up.

Fellow forward Jamille Matt is nearing a return from his ankle injury and no midweek game has given him more time to recover although Nathan Tyson, another striker, is back with Blackpool following a disappointing loan spell.

Numerous players have returned to Alexander's squad following the expiration of their own loan deals, yet full-back Shaun Beeley will miss some time with a hamstring problem.
