Dagenham & Redbridge will be without midfielder Peter Gain for the visit of promotion rivals Rotherham.

Gain is beginning a two-game suspension after picking up his 10th booking of the season against Bury last weekend so Graeme Montgomery or Jon Nurse will come in on the left of midfield.

Yoann Folly will play in the centre of midfield with Darren Currie in contention for a rare start alongside him after Portsmouth midfielder Marlon Pack's loan expired.

Manager John Still is hoping to re-sign Pack but has no fresh injury concerns to contend with.

Midfielder Stuart Thurgood remains sidelined with a knee injury which threatens to end his season and defender Will Antwi is still nursing a calf strain.

Rotherham chief Ronnie Moore could hand a debut to Craig McAllister.

The striker joined the Millers on Thursday on a month-long loan from League One strugglers Exeter, where he has struggled to force his way into the first team fold.

McAllister is expected to go straight into the Millers' squad for the clash at Victoria Road, as the promotion hopefuls look to get back on track after successive defeats.

Moore will be boosted by the return of captain Ian Sharps, who could feature after missing last week's defeat to Bradford with a hamstring injury.

Nicky Law's groin problem means he is a major doubt, while Gavin Gunning (thigh) is unlikely to take any part.

United will also be without injured duo Jamie Green (ankle) and Stephen Brogan (calf).
