Johnson: One of three players edging closer to a return.
Dagenham & Redbridge should be able to include midfielder, Sam Saunders in the squad as he is expected to recover from a knock picked up against Hereford United earlier in the week.

The Daggers are hoping to bring in Salisbury winger, Liam Feeney on loan with a view to signing him permanently in January.

This looks unlikely to materialise in time for him to compete in tomorrow's game, meaning Portsmouth loanee, Matt Ritchie is expected to start.

His time with the club is set to expire after the Magpies clash.


Notts County have once again welcomed back Gavin Strachan from another hamstring injury.

The avid blogger will not return until he has participated in a number of private friendly games that will allow him to build up his match fitness.

Stephen Hunt finds himself in a similar predicament and is expected to be given one more run out before being thrust back into the contention.

It has been declared that Michael Johnson should be available in the next couple of weeks, following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a toe injury.

A niggling knee problem has classed Matthew Hamshaw as a slight doubt but he is expected to pull through in time.

Ben Fairclough is expected to miss out with a hamstring strain, alongside Adam Tann (knee), whose beard is expected to grow quite a bit longer before he returns.
