Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still could hand a second debut to Solomon Taiwo against Hartlepool.
Midfielder Taiwo re-joined the club on loan from Cardiff until the end of the season on Thursday, 15 months after leaving the Daggers for a fee in the region of #250,000, and could come straight back into the side.
Midfielders Peter Gain and Danny Green will both miss out having picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season at Rochdale so sit out one-match bans.
Defender Abu Ogogo is training after his hamstring injury but this game is probably a little too early for him to make a comeback, while Will Antwi is still not training due to recurring problems with his hamstring.
Hartlepool will be missing Evan Horwood for the trip.
The left-back suffered a hip injury in the second half of last week's 2-2 draw with Bristol Rovers and will not recover in time to play.
Striker Adam Boyd is still out with a back injury, but caretaker boss Mick Wadsworth has better news concerning the fitness of Ritchie Humphreys and James Brown.
Both men have returned to training following injury lay-offs, but with no reserve-team action under their belts, the Daggers clash will come too soon.
Pools have won two of their six League Two games on the road this season and will hope to put further space between themselves and the bottom four.
