Connors banned for Pilgrims clash

Jack Connors serves a one-match suspension as Dagenham host Plymouth.

The defender saw red in last last weekend's 1-1 draw at Burton and now misses out against the Pilgrims as Wayne Burnett's side look to secure what would only be a second win in eight attempts.

Femi Ilesanmi is expected to step in having shrugged off an ankle injury, although midfielder Luke Howell (ankle) is not quite ready.

Dagenham will hold a minute's applause before kick-off and wear black armbands in honour of long-serving kit man Bill Edmans, who passed away last weekend at the age of 87.

Plymouth will be without Neal Trotman.

The former Chesterfield defender saw red in last weekend's 4-0 home loss to York and will now serve a one-match ban.

But manager John Sheridan has a number of options for the trip with full-backs Durrell Berry and Matt Parsons as well as striker Marvin Morgan all fully fit after injury.

Berry and Morgan were on the bench last Saturday along with the likes of Tyler Harvey, Nathan Thomas and Andres Gurrieri, who are also pushing for inclusion this time around.
