Daggers fit and ready to go
Dagenham boast a fully-fit squad for the visit of promotion-chasing Cheltenham as they bid to boost their own play-off ambitions.
Manager John Still has no injury or suspension problems to contend with and could well line up with the same side that drew 0-0 at Plymouth last weekend.
Striker Ben Strevens made his second debut for the Daggers at Home Park having returned on a deal until the end of the season.
Strevens previously played for the club between 2006 and 2009 and led the line alongside Paul Benson, with the pair set to come up against each other this weekend as the latter, now on loan at Cheltenham, makes his first return to Victoria Road since leaving in 2010.
The Daggers are winless in three games while they have won just two of their previous nine, although they remain a mere eight points adrift of the play-off places.
Cheltenham have Marlon Pack available this weekend despite his deadline day move to Swindon having fallen through.
The 21-year-old midfielder was named among the substitutes in the draw with Bristol Rovers and manager Mark Yates confirmed he is still part of the squad until they hear otherwise.
Swindon winger Luke Rooney has been training with the Robins but he will not travel to London while Billy Jones is fit again and competing for a place with Sido Jombati.
Harry Hooman is Yates' only absentee having undergone surgery on a damaged bone in his foot and a ligament at the base of a toe.
Cheltenham's point against the Pirates on Tuesday leaves them in the third and final automatic promotion place in npower League Two.
