Captial One Cup: Dagenham & Redbridge v Coventry City, Tuesday, August 14, kick-off 7.45pm

John Still has confirmed midfield duo Kevin Maher and Matthew Saunders will miss tonight’s visit of Coventry City in the Capital One Cup first round.

Maher will undergo a foot operation today as a follow-up to an original metatarsal injury suffered in January.

Meanwhile, Saunders is still recovering from an ankle problem which prematurely ended his season in March.

“Kevin Maher will have the screw taken out of his foot on Tuesday (today),” confirmed Still.
