Dagenham boss John Still could hand former Reading, Brighton and Tranmere striker Bas Savage his first start for the club against Exeter.

Savage impressed as a second-half substitute in the defeat against Bristol Rovers and may be handed the chance to end the Daggers recent troubles in front of goal - they have scored just five goals in eight games this season.

Josh Scott or Gavin Tomlin could drop to the bench as neither have found the net between them this season.

Defenders Abu Ogogo and Will Antwi remain sidelined with ankle and hamstring injuries respectively so it is expected that Savage will be the only change with Phil Ifil continuing to bridge the gap at right-back.

Exeter are again without their influencial skipper Matt Taylor for the trip.

Taylor is still weeks away from returning and Grecians manager Paul Tisdale is likely to call on Troy Archibald-Henville again despite him scoring an own goal in the 2-2 draw against Peterborough at the weekend.

Striker Jamie Cureton scored at the weekend and could partner Daniel Nardiello in attack while fellow striker Richard Logan is also knocking on the door.

John O'Flynn could drop to the bench after failing to score against Posh and suffering a knock during the game.

Much-travelled striker Marcus Stewart is still absent as he battles with back spasms and striker Ben Watson has joined Forest Green Rovers on a month's loan so will not be involved.
