Match Preview

Rowe back for Posh Winger Tommy Rowe is back in contention as Peterborough host relegation-threatened Dagenham & Redbridge. The former Stockport player has been struggling with a groin strain but is available while right-back Mark Little could also play after recovering from an ankle injury. Left-back Grant Basey is likely to be missing for a couple of weeks with a knee injury and fellow full-back Tom Kennedy only has a slight chance of being involved in the play-offs after damaging his knee ligaments in the reverse fixture at Dagenham. Manager Darren Ferguson has no plans to rest any of his key players despite Posh already being safe in a play-off place. Ferguson has seen his side win just two of the last nine games and he is keen to enter the play-offs on a high. Dagenham will be without key winger Danny Green as they battle for their League One lives. Green was instrumental in the 3-0 win over Carlisle last weekend but was sent-off after scoring a late goal for his second bookable offence. He begins a two-match ban so Darren Currie will come in to replace him as the Daggers look for a win which could keep them in the division if results go their way elsewhere. Centre-half Scott Doe will miss the game with a hamstring injury so Will Antwi will keep his place. John Still's side have won their last league away game of the season every year since they joined the Football League.

Match Report

Daggers relegated by five-star Posh Dagenham were relegated on the final day of the League One season after they slipped to a thumping 5-0 defeat at play-off bound Peterborough. The Daggers had to collect a positive result to stand any chance of survival but were well beaten after failing to take a glut of chances. Dagenham were undone defensively as early as the 11th minute when Posh youngster Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scampered into the box and fired under the body of keeper Tony Roberts. But the visitors regularly had opportunities at the other end as Darren Currie twice hit the woodwork and striker John Akinde was twice denied by home keeper Joe Lewis before the break. Yet Posh doubled their lead in the 65th minute thanks to a glorious strike from Grant McCann, who lashed his 10th goal of the season into the roof of the net. The Daggers continued to create chance of their own but George Boyd guided in a third goal on 82 and former Daggers ace Craig Mackail-Smith added his 32nd goal of the season two minutes later before David Ball completed the rout.
