Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still is likely to name an unchanged side as League One leaders Brighton prepare to visit.
Still is desperate to get a game on and is confident of hosting Gus Poyet's men for what would be the Daggers' second game in the last 35 days.
They did win at Carlisle in their only previous fixture in December and the same XI will face the Seagulls.
Striker Gavin Tomlin - who has scored just once since his summer move from Yeovil - remains sidelined by his ankle injury so on-loan West Brom youngster Kayleden Brown will continue to partner Bas Savage in attack.
Savage signed a new deal last week to stay with the Daggers until the end of the season.
Gus Poyet has a virtually full-strength squad for Brighton.
Long-term injury victims Alan Navarro and Kazenga LuaLua are the only players on the Seagulls' casualty list.
Midfielder Navarro hopes to return in February as he recovers from cruciate ligament damage and loan winger LuaLua is back with parent club Newcastle after breaking his ankle last month.
Albion boss Poyet could make a couple of changes after watching the leaders crash to a 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield a fortnight ago.
Glenn Murray and West Brom loanee Chris Wood started in attack but seven-goal striker Ashley Barnes is pushing for a recall, while Matt Sparrow could come in to shore up the midfield.
