Oldham boss Paul Dickov has no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with Dagenham.

The Latics thumped Hartlepool 4-0 on Tuesday and Dickov is unlikely to make any changes to his side.

Aidan White, Chris Taylor, Cedric Evina and a first Oldham goal from substitute Reuben Reid secured the win for the promotion-chasing Latics.

And Dickov is confident that his men can continue to push for a play-off spot after brushing Pools aside so emphatically.

He said: "We have a really good squad now so everyone has to be on their game to stay in the team.

"We looked very confident but belief is something we have instilled in the players because we know how good they can be."

Dagenham & Redbridge will again be without striker John Akinde for their first-ever trip to Oldham.

Akinde joined on loan from Bristol City last month but has not even trained with his new side as he battles a groin injury.

He has now returned to Ashton Gate to receive treatment as he hopes to avoid surgery on the problem.

Fellow striker Josh Scott has been struggling with a mystery illness and was diagnosed with a blood clot this week so will be out of action for a few weeks.

Midfielder Danny Green misses the second match of his three-game suspension so manager John Still is set to name an unchanged side.

The Daggers breathed life into their survival hopes by battering Brentford 4-1 in midweek.
