Daggers winger could replace Luke Guttridge in the side
Dagenham & Redbridge may give an injection of pace to their side at Guiseley today after boss John Still admitted their build-up play in Tuesday’s loss at Chester was ‘too slow’.
That may mean Chris Assombalonga could make his first start for Daggers, with both of his appearances in the league following his summer move from Waltham Abbey coming from the bench.
Assombalonga could come in at the expense of Luke Guttridge in a move that could also see Jordan Maguire-Drew move into a more central role behind striker Oliver Hawkins.
There may be a change at the base of the midfield too, with Andre Boucaud perhaps losing his place in the starting XI to Frankie Raymond, who offers more creativity.
It is understood there are no fresh injury concerns, with Luke Howell (knee) and Luke Pennell (ACL) the only long-term absentees.
That means Elliot Justham is likely to keep his place in goal despite being beaten by two long-range efforts on Tuesday, while the back four will remain unchanged.
Also keeping their starting spots will be Matt Robinson and Fejiri Okenabirhie, meaning Paul Benson may once again have to settle for a place on the bench.
Probable XI: Justham; Williams, Doe, Robson, Widdowson; Robinson, Raymond; Assombalonga, Maguire-Drew, Okenabirhie; Hawkins
