Dagenham could hand a debut to midfielder Yoann Folly for the visit of hapless Grimsby.

Folly signed on a month-long loan from Plymouth this week and could start in place of Marlon Pack.

Pack's loan spell from Portsmouth is due to expire on March 6 and manager John Still has not been totally convinced by his form in the centre of midfield.

Winger Graeme Montgomery was rested from the starting line-up for the 3-2 win at Aldershot on Tuesday but will start on Saturday in place of Jon Nurse, who will take up a seat on the bench.

Midfielder Stuart Thurgood is expected to miss the rest of the season as he continues his recovery from a knee operation while defender Will Antwi is out with ankle and calf injuries.

Midfielder Peter Sweeney returns from suspension for Grimsby but forward Nathan Jarman begins a ban.

Sweeney sat out the draws against Lincoln and Macclesfield as he served a two-match ban for collecting his 10th yellow card of the season at Notts County. He is likely to come straight back into the starting line-up.

Jarman starts a three-match absence after he was shown a straight red card against the Silkmen in midweek.

With on-loan striker Lee Peacock likely to keep his place in the side, manager Neil Woods will choose between Adam Proudlock and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro as Jarman's replacement.

Dean Sinclair missed the Macclesfield match with a knee injury but the midfielder should come back into the reckoning.
