Dagenham & Redbridge Vs Cheltenham Town, Mon 28 Dec 2009

Next Story

Dagenham manager John Still is poised to name an unchanged side for the visit of Cheltenham on Monday.

Still saw his side lose 1-0 at Northampton on Boxing Day but only after seeing captain Mark Arber miss a late penalty and he is unlikely to make any changes.

The Daggers have only won twice in their last seven League Two games but a third against the Robins could see them move back into the automatic promotion places.

Defender Will Antwi suffered ankle ligament damage early in December and is still out while midfielder Stuart Thurgood remains on the sidelines as he begins a three-month lay-off following a knee operation so on-loan Gillingham midfielder Adam Miller will continue.

Julian Alsop will be hoping to make his first Cheltenham start under new boss Mark Yates.

The veteran striker was rated no better than 50/50 to play against Bournemouth on Boxing Day but came off the bench in the 73rd minute, replacing Michael Pook, and will be hoping to make a bigger contribution against Still's men.

Defenders Lee Ridley and Michael Townsend both faced the Cherries following calf injuries and are expected to retain their places for the trip to Greater London.

Town were defeated 1-0 by high-flying Bournemouth so Yates faces his first away match in charge of Cheltenham seeking his first win for the club where he spent five years as a player.
