Trio return for Daggers

Dagenham have received a triple boost as they look to reignite their play-off charge at home to Mansfield.

Jack Connors returns from suspension having missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home to Plymouth due to a one-match ban.

Fellow defender Femi Ilesanmi has shrugged off an ankle injury and is back in contention along with midfielder Luke Howell, who has also overcome a similar problem and returned to full training this week.

Matt Saunders (toe) and Afolabi Obafemi (ankle) are both back in training but the game comes too soon as the Daggers look to improve upon a run of just two wins in 13 matches.

Louis Briscoe could come back into the reckoning for Mansfield.

Briscoe has been out with a back problem but the winger resumed training this week and may make the squad at the weekend after completing a full 90 minutes for the reserve team on Wednesday.

Mansfield suffered no new problems during the 4-1 home defeat to Bury in midweek so Briscoe's possible inclusion aside, manager Paul Cox will select from the same group of players.

James Jennings (quad), Martin Riley (calf) and Jake Speight (knee) remain on the sidelines.
