Aldershot Town Vs Dagenham & Redbridge, Tue 23 Feb 2010


Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon has no fresh injury concerns as he looks for a return to winning ways against Dagenham.

Dillon saw his side denied a fine victory against Notts County on Saturday by Ben Davies` stoppage-time free-kick and could name an unchanged side against the Daggers.

On-loan Reading midfielder Oliver Bozanic bagged the opener on Saturday and will keep his place in the centre of midfield alongside Scott Donnelly and Ben Harding.

On-loan Bristol City forward Marlon Jackson (knee) and former Reading midfielder John Halls (groin) remain sidelined, though defender Dave Winfield should be back from a bout of food poisoning.

Dillon said: "It's going to be our third game in seven or eight days which isn't ideal, but that's the way that it is and we need to win another game.

"We've moved down a couple of places to 10th but it's very tight there, there's not a lot in it. We've got to play all the teams above us too."

Dagenham will be without manager John Still - but will have top scorer Paul Benson back.

Still is in hospital for a surgical procedure to remove some gallstones and will miss the fixture, but Benson will start after missing the 3-1 defeat at leaders Rochdale on Saturday thanks to a stomach virus.

Benson has scored 13 times this season but is without a goal since the end of January.

Fellow forward Jon Nurse is likely to be on the bench after coming off at Spotland with a bruised eye after he was struck by a stray elbow.

Midfielder Stuart Thurgood remains a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee operation while defender Will Antwi is out with an ankle injury.
