Daggers midfielder went off clutching hamstring on Tuesday, but assistant manager has no major concerns over possible injury

Assistant manager Junior Lewis expects Charlee Adams to be fit for Dagenham & Redbridge’s National League trip to Maidenhead United on Saturday, despite coming off injured in stoppage time in Tuesday’s win at home to Macclesfield Town.

The summer signing from Birmingham City went down clutching his hamstring after playing a pass late on against the Silkmen.

The 22-year-old was immediately replaced by Matt Robinson, who is in line to replace Adams should he not be passed fit for Saturday.

But Lewis is confident that it was nothing major and that the young playmaker should be fit to feature away to the Magpies this weekend.

“I think it was just a little bit of tiredness for Charlee after the work he had put in against Macclesfield,” said the 44-year-old.

“I’m sure he will fine for to face Maidenhead, but we’ll have a look at him in training.”

Adams played a major part for Daggers in beating Macclesfield on Tuesday, teeing Morgan Ferrier up for the games only goal early in the second half.

It was Daggers’ first goal in four matches in all competitions, and also saw the Essex outfit end a five-game winless run in all competitions.

And Lewis feels the triumph over the Silkmen was just reward for the performances the Victoria Road side have turned in in recent weeks.

“We were unlucky on Saturday and put the same effort in against Macclesfield. We keep saying to them if they keep putting the effort in, they’ll be rewarded,” he added.

“We defended really well, I don’t remember Macclesfield having a real chance and we had the best chance of the game.”
