Cheltenham will be without on-loan goalkeeper Jack Butland for their clash with Dagenham.

The 18-year-old is away with England Under-21s in Iceland and will therefore be unavailable for the final game of his one-month stay in Gloucestershire, with Scott Brown deputising between the sticks.

However, Robins manager Mark Yates is keen on extending Butland's stint at the club and is in the process of negotiating an extension with the youngster's parent club Birmingham.

Otherwise Yates is not troubled by either injury or suspension for the game against the Daggers.

Darryl Duffy, who scored twice in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy second-round win over Wycombe on Tuesday after coming off the bench, is likely to earn a place in the starting line-up.

Meanwhile, a number of players, including Harry Hooman, Brian Smikle and Luke Garbutt, impressed in the success at Adams Park and are in with a chance of retaining their places this weekend.

Dagenham boss John Still is set to revert back to his strongest line-up for the trip.

Still made five changes to his starting XI for Tuesday's 3-1 Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Southend as he looked to hand some game-time to a handful of players, while also employing a new-look 5-3-2 formation.

Fit-again Kevin Maher, Phil Walsh, Billy Bingham, Troy Hewitt and Brian Woodall all came in to replace Oliver Lee, Peter Gain, Damian Scannell, Jon Nurse and Sam Williams, who helped end a run of five successive league defeats with last weekend's 2-1 win against Crewe.

Williams, however, missed the JPT tie due to a back injury sustained late on against the Alex and is again expected to sit out at Whaddon Road.

Full-back Abu Ogogo will be assessed having missed the club's last two matches with a virus, as will fellow defender Scott Doe after he was forced off at half-time against Southend with a slight knock.
