Preview: Dagenham & Redbridge v Torquay United
Victoria Road, Saturday, August 27. kick-off 3pm
Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still has hinted midfielder Peter Gain may be in line for a first team return when Torquay United visit Victoria Road on Saturday.
Gain is yet to feature this season after undergoing a hernia operation in the summer, but has recently returned to full training.
And after coming through a reserve team game in midweek, Still confirmed he has a chance of being involved against The Gulls.
Still said: “He had a reserve team game on Tuesday. We’ll see how he is on Saturday. He could possibly be on the bench.”
