Team news: Dagenham & Redbridge v Mansfield Town
Daggers manager Wayne Burnett has a decision to make at left back with both Jack Connors and Femi Ilesanmi available for today’s game against Mansfield Town.
Connors returns from a one-match ban following his sending off against Burton Albion, while Ilesanmi come in after returning from an ankle injury also picked up in the game against the Brewers.
Luke Norris is also available for the Daggers after extending his loan from Brentford on Monday, but the match has come too soon for midfielders Luke Howell and Matt Saunders, who despite returning to training from ankle injurie are not yet available for selection.
Afolabi Obafemi is another nursing an ankle injury, and is rated as 50/50 for the game against the Stags.
For Mansfield, Martin Riley (calf), left back James Jennings (quad) and striker Jake Speight (knee) are all ruled out.
Lee Briscoe could make a return to the starting line-up after coming through a reserve team game in midweek, while Ben Hutchinson and Michael Cain are also in the reckoning for a start.
Meanwhile, the Daggers have thrown their support behind the Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign, the brainchild of charity Prostate Cancer UK for their League Two clash with Mansfield on Saturday.
The charity is the official partner of the Football League and Daggers’ match this weekend is just one of 62 scheduled across the three leagues between March 1 and April 18, with fundraising activities also supporting the campaign.
Managers from both clubs will sport the iconic Man of Men pin badges, and supporters will be able to follow suit and badge up themselves.
