Daggers goalkeeper Lewington fit for Oxford clash but Spillane out

Dagenham & Redbridge goalkeeper Chris Lewington has recovered from concussion picked up in Saturday’s 4-0 loss against Bournemouth.

Dagenham & Redbridge go into tonight’s match against Oxford United with regular goalkeeper Chris Lewington in between the sticks.

Lewington picked up a head injury early on in Saturday’s 4-0 FA Cup loss at AFC Bournemouth, forcing off at half time to be replaced by 18-year-old Jordan Seabright.

But he had been given the all-clear to start tonight’s encounter at the Kassam Stadium after recovering from concussion.

One player who is definitely out of trip to Oxford is Michael Spillane who misses the game after picking up his fifth booking of the season at Bournemouth.
