Depleted Daggers determined to tame the Lions
Manager John Still says his side will attack against Millwall
Manager John Still insists Daggers will not change their style of play as they look to overcome Millwall and reach the FA Cup fourth round for the second time in their history.
Daggers required replays to beat Bath City and Walsall to reach round three of the World’s oldest cup competition for the first time since 2008 – and their only ever venture into round four ended with a 1-0 defeat at Norwich in 2003.
Still has 11 first-team players sidelined, but insists his team will be going all out to keep the cup run going.
“We go for it in good spirits. Its one of those games where we can attack and have a go at it,” he said.

“The last thing we want is a replay. If we got a replay we wouldn’t be disappointed, but we want to try and go and win it and put on an attacking performance.
“It might not quite be like that because you don’t know how much of the ball you’re going to get, they’re a good side, a Championship side, but we go into it in decent form.

“In football, players play for big games. We’ve had Barnet which is a local derby, Gillingham were the form team, Southend are up at the top of the league and Millwall is another big game. I hope the big games continue.”
If Daggers are to beat Kenny Jackett’s side they will have to do so without Damien McCrory (ankle), Mark Arber (hernia), Sam Williams (knee), Rob Edmans (leg), Josh Scott (knee), Kevin Maher (foot), Luke Howell (knee) and Peter Gain (knee).
Midfielder Cristian Montano is ineligible to play under the terms of his loan from West Ham, while Exodus Geohaghon and Adam Cunnington are both cup-tied.
Still may hand a debut to central midfielder Abdulla Ahmed, whose loan from West Ham was finalised earlier today, while Abu Ogogo returns after completing a three-game ban.
