Bell missing for Crewe
Crewe will be without midfielder Lee Bell as they chase a third consecutive win against Dagenham.
Bell, who has been in impressive form of late, underwent hernia surgery this week and faces up to a month on the sidelines.
Forward duo Ajay Leitch-Smith and Shaun Miller are battling to return to contention having missed last weekend's 1-0 win at Oxford with respective thigh and hamstring strains.
In their absence, Greg Pearson came off the bench to net a late winner on his debut at the Kassam Stadium, but the on-loan Burton striker is expected to remain among the substitutes as he works towards full match fitness.
Defender Carl Martin continues his rehabilitation from tendinitis of the hamstring but is expected to remain out of action this weekend.
Brian Woodall returns to the fold for Dagenham.
The striker sat out Tuesday's 5-0 FA Cup hammering at the hands of Millwall due to illness but has trained since and will be in contention.
Cristian Montano, Exodus Geohaghon and Adam Cunnington also return having all been ineligible for the midweek cup tie at the Den.
Josh Scott is making good progress with his knee injury and may be named on the bench at Gresty Road, as could fellow striker Rob Edmans after he got 45 minutes in midweek as he continues his comeback from a broken leg.
Luke Howell (knee) hopes to return in mid-February but fellow midfielders Kevin Maher (metatarsal) and Peter Gain (knee) face around six weeks on the sidelines, with long-term absentee Sam Williams (knee) ruled out for the rest of the season.
Crewe cruise to victory
Chris Lewington's goalkeeping howler cost Dagenham dearly as Crewe extended their winning run to three games with a 4-1 victory at Gresty Road.
Brian Woodall had given the visitors the lead before Greg Pearson netted his second goal in as many games for the Alex to level things up before half-time.
The Daggers gave as good as they got but when Lewington's air shot allowed Abu Agogo's backpass to trickle into the net the floodgates opened and Adam Dugdale and Nick Powell completed the rout.
Home captain Dave Artell gifted Dagenham the lead with just 16 minutes gone. The defender's poor clearance hit Woodall, leaving the striker all the time in the world to curl a simple finish around the helpless Steve Phillips.
Crewe created chances but Lewington saved Powell's follow-up shot after good work from Byron Moore, while Pearson just failed to connect with an Ashley Westwood cross.
But Pearson did find the right connection to level four minutes before the break. Jamie Lowry's free-kick was chested down by Artell and Pearson stuck the ball home on the half volley from six yards out.
Pearson almost put the Alex ahead early in the second half but his angled header was cleared off the line by Dominic Green.
All the visitor's hard work went to waste thanks to Lewington's 71st-minute blooper.
Dugdale then rose to head home Lowry's 83rd-minute free-kick before Powell made it four with a superb chipped finish three minutes later.
