Dagenham & Redbridge Vs Yeovil Town, Sat 12 Feb 2011

Published Add your comment

Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still will be without Danny Green and Peter Gain for the visit of Yeovil.

Winger Green completes his three-match suspension while fellow midfielder Gain starts a three-game ban of his own after his dismissal against Oldham last week.

Gain is likely to be replaced by Solomon Taiwo who is fit again, so Still will revert to a 4-4-2 formation with Darren Currie coming in for Billy Bingham.

Striker John Akinde joined on loan from Bristol City last month but has not even trained with his new side as he battles a groin injury.

He has now returned to Ashton Gate to receive treatment as he hopes to avoid surgery on the problem.

Fellow striker Josh Scott has been struggling with a mystery illness and was diagnosed with a blood clot this week which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.

Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton could hand new signing Antonio German his debut.

The 19-year-old striker, who has scored three goals in 20 appearances for his parent club QPR, has signed on loan until the end of the season and will go straight into the squad to face the Daggers providing the necessary paperwork is completed in time.

Skiverton will have to decide whether to continue rotating his strikeforce or stick with Oli Johnson, who has extended his loan from Norwich for a further two months, and Andrew Williams.

Defender Craig Alcock will also return to the squad following a back problem that has kept him out since before Christmas.

However, top scorer Dean Bowditch, who missed last weekend's clash with Charlton, is a doubt.

The 24-year-old returned to training this week following a hamstring problem but broke down again and will face a late fitness test.
