Dagenham & Redbridge will again be without midfield duo Matt Saunders and Luke Howell for today’s match against Plymouth Argyle.

Saunders has suffered with a long-term ankle injury picked up in the Essex Senior Cup win over East Thurrock back in December, but despite stepping up his recovery in recent weeks, he’s still not fit enough to be included in the matchday squad.

Luke Howell will also miss out with an ankle injury he suffered against Scunthorpe United, and his comeback has been put back with the 27-year-old still suffering some discomfort.

On top of that, Daggers will be without left back Jack Connors after his sending off against Burton Albion last week, and that means it will be difficult for manager Wayne Burnett to fill the substitutes bench.

Plymouth will be without defender Neal Trotman, who was also sent off last weekend in their 4-0 loss to York City.

They could include a former Dagger in Marvin Morgan, who spent a period on loan with the club back in 2011 from Aldershot Town.

Tope Obadeyi can also feature for John Sheridan’s Pilgrims having rejoined on loan from fellow League Two side Bury.
