Williams set for Shrimps bow
Ryan Williams could make his long-awaited Morecambe debut when Dagenham travel to the Globe Arena.
Williams trained with the Shrimps over the summer and appeared to have secured a contract in October, only for international clearance issues to scupper the deal.
But the former Rhyl and Chester man has now been given the green light to join up with Jim Bentley's squad and may come into contention.
Williams' fellow midfielder Andy Fleming will be available having missed the goalless draw with Bradford on New Year's Day through illness.
Jordan Burrow is hoping to retain his place after the forward made a first start since recovering from knee ligament damage against the Bantams.
Bentley must adjust to life without striker Richard Brodie and full-back Jordan Mustoe after the pair returned to Crawley and Wigan at the end of their respective loan spells.
Supporters have been offered free entry to the match as Morecambe look to address the issue of falling attendances.
Dagenham boss John Still must decide whether to keep faith with a winning XI or freshen his line-up for the trip.
The Daggers bounced back from three successive defeats over the festive period to see off Accrington 2-0 on Saturday.
Still made two changes for the encounter, bringing in right-back Gavin Hoyte and striker Brian Woodall for Michael Spillane and Jake Reed respectively.
The Dagenham boss is again expected to be at full-strength for the encounter at Globe Park and is never one to tinker too much with his side, although a fifth game in 14 days will give him plenty to think about.
Spillane, Reed, Kevin Maher, Josh Scott and Billy Bingham are the leading contenders should Still look to change one or two around.
