New signing Damien McCrory will make his debut for Dagenham as they host in-form Northampton.
McCrory signed for a five-figure fee from Plymouth on transfer deadline day and will start at left-back in place of Jamie Day who has returned to Peterborough after his loan period ended.
Manager John Still has no fresh injury concerns and will name an otherwise unchanged side from the one which played Notts County 10 days ago after last weekend's trip to face Lincoln was frozen off.
Midfielder Stuart Thurgood has been sent to see a specialist after failing to make progress from a knee operation so on-loan Portsmouth midfielder Marlon Pack will continue in central midfield alongside Danny Spiller.
Defenders Will Antwi (thigh) and Anwar Uddin (ankle) have restarted training but this game is too early for their involvement.
