Calvin Andrew is likely to make his debut for Swindon in what is really a must-win game at home to fellow strugglers Dagenham & Redbridge.

The striker arrived on a one-month loan deal from Crystal Palace on Thursday and goes straight into the squad.

Forwards Elliot Benyon (hamstring and illness) and Thomas Dossevi (side) returned from injury with substitute appearances in Tuesday`s 1-0 defeat at Plymouth and having got more training under their belts this week, both could well play a bigger part against the Daggers.

But Town are again set to be without David Lucas after the goalkeeper missed the Home Park reverse - a result which dropped Town to the bottom of the table - due to an arm infection, so Phil Smith is likely to start once again

Striker Vincent Pericard (knee) and defenders Lescinel Jean-Francois (leg) and Milan Misun (knee) also remain sidelined.

Dagenham are set to be unchanged for the relegation six-pointer.

John Still saw his side pick up a second straight win at home to Colchester in midweek, leaving them two points adrift of safety with two games in hand.

Swindon are bottom of the league - three points behind the Daggers having played three games more.

Left-back Damien McCrory twisted his ankle during the win at Bristol Rovers last Saturday and will be out for around a fortnight so Oluwafemi Ilesanmi is in line to start again.

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 has recovered from an ankle injury as the Daggers look to make it nine points from nine.
