Hereford will be without striker Stuart Fleetwood or the home clash with Dagenham & Redbridge.

Fleetwood, the Bulls` top scorer last season with 18 goals, was a shock departure late on transfer deadline day as he completed a switch to Luton.

He had started the last two matches on the bench having been included in manager Jamie Pitman`s line-up for the opening six games of the campaign.

Goalkeeper David Cornell on Wednesday extended his loan from Swansea until the end of the season, and he will reclaim the number one spot after Adam Bartlett suffered a recurrence of his thigh strain when he returned between the sticks for Tuesday`s Johnstone`s Paint Trophy defeat at Bournemouth.

Defenders Ryan Green and Dan Williams should be okay having sat out against the Cherries, while it is hoped midfielder Joe Colbeck is passed fit having missed the last two matches.

Rob Purdie (thigh) continues to sit out.

Dagenham will be without striker Jon Nurse for the trip but Dominic Green is in contention to make his second debut following his return to the club.

Nurse is away on international duty with Barbados and will play no part at Edgar Street, although winger Green boosts the Daggers having re-signed on Thursday as a free agent following his release by Peterborough - three years after departing the club.

Fellow wide man Medy Elito should be okay having failed a fitness test on his groin prior to last Saturday`s 1-1 draw at home to Torquay.

Midfielder Peter Gain (hernia) made his long-awaited return to play the final 20 minutes against the Gulls last weekend and he will again be involved as he continues to step up his fitness.

Winger Damian Scannell should also be available. He was named among the substitutes after a groin problem and featured in the closing stages.

Otherwise, despite having no new injury problems or suspensions to contend with, manager John Still remains without Josh Scott (knee), Rob Edmans (fractured leg) and Kevin Maher (metatarsal). Billy Bingham (knee) continues to step up his training after a lengthy absence.
