Dagenham boss John Still will pick from an unchanged squad for the visit of former club Barnet.

Mark Arber and Will Antwi remain sidelined by their respective ankle and calf injuries so Anwar Uddin will again partner Scott Doe, who returned from a back injury to start last weekend's 2-2 draw at Chesterfield, in the Daggers backline.

Midfielder Stuart Thurgood is still struggling with a knee injury that threatens to end his season early but Still, who managed the Bees earlier in his career, has no fresh injury or suspension concerns to deal with as they look to maintain their push for the League Two play-offs.

Still's men are four points away from the play-off places with just five games left to play.

Barnet will hand late fitness tests to Micah Hyde, John O'Flynn and Gary Breen.

Captain Hyde sustained an Achilles injury during Saturday's 2-1 home defeat by Macclesfield before leaving the ground on crutches but, if he fails to make it, David Livermore, Ed Upson and Nicky Deverdics are among the options for a starting berth in midfield.

Leading scorer O'Flynn and defender Breen have both been struggling with knee problems and manager Ian Hendon will continue to assess their fitness and will give them, along with Hyde, every chance to prove their fitness.

Daniel Leach, who was recently recalled from a loan spell at Dover, started in place of Breen on Saturday and could again fill the void if his fellow defender is not fit in time, while Paul Furlong and Jake Hyde would retain their places up front if O'Flynn misses out.

But Ismail Yakubu remains sidelined by a troublesome back problem.
