McCrory sidelined for Us clash: Match Review

Dagenham manager John Still will be without defender Damien McCrory for the visit of Colchester.

The former Plymouth left-back twisted his ankle during the win at Bristol Rovers on Saturday and will miss out, meaning Oluwafemi Ilesanmi is in line to start.

Defender Will Antwi is back in full training after a groin problem but will not dislodge Scott Doe and Mark Arber in the centre of defence.

Right-back Abu Ogogo missed the Rovers win with an ankle injury but should return as Still`s side look to continue their push for survival.

The Daggers are five points from safety after their win at the Memorial Stadium but have as many as four games in hand over the teams above them.

Colchester will be without David Mooney for the trip.

The striker starts a three-match ban after receiving a straight red card in the first half of Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to Southampton.

That paves the way for Steven Gillespie to deputise, although Andy Bond and Ian Henderson could fulfil the unfamiliar role.

John-Joe O'Toole is expected to return to the squad. The midfielder made his long-awaited comeback from a 10-month absence against Bristol Rovers last week before being left out against Saints.

Defender Magnus Okuonghae will be out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on an ankle problem.

Fellow defenders Brian Wilson and Morten Knudsen have returned to training following ankle and knee problems respectively but the game will come too soon for them.
