Dagenham have been hit hard by the news that influential midfielder Stuart Thurgood will be out for at least three months.

Thurgood saw a specialist on Friday and it has now been revealed he will have to go under the knife to repair his knee injury.

Thurgood's absence is a big blow to manager John Still as the former Gillingham midfielder played a crucial part in the Daggers' storming start to the season.

Thurgood has two cartilage problems - one on the inside and the other on the back - which have to be operated on and will be sidelined for three months if everything goes smoothly.

Dagenham extended the loan of Gillingham midfielder Adam Miller - who has been deputising for Thurgood - for an extra month on Tuesday and may look to bring someone in on a permanent basis in January.
