Preview: Huddersfield Town v Dagenham & Redbridge

Galpharm Stadium, Monday, April 25, kick off 3pm

Daggers boss John Still is relishing today’s vital trip to high-flying Huddersfield Town.

Results over the weekend, including Dagenham’s 1-0 defeat to Plymouth on Good Friday, leave the east London club outside of the bottom four on goal difference.

While at the other end of the table, Lee Clark’s Huddersfield are involved in a three-way battle for promotion to the Championship alongside Brighton, but Still insists his side will not be fazed by their trip to the Galpharm Stadium.

“We’ve played tougher. I don’t really worry about that,” he said.

“I’ve been used to playing important games really since day one, when everyone said you could go out the Conference.

“We’ve played big games before, we’ve got three big games coming up and I’m looking forward to it, because I love the games.

“It’s difficult at the moment and it’s hard at the moment, but if it was easy we wouldn’t be here.

“It’s hard, we’re here because it is tough, we’re here because we’ve had to battle against everything and we’re going to keep battling.”

The visitors will be without Scott Doe, who limped out of Friday’s game with a hamstring injury, so Will Antwi is set to deputise.

Daggers have no other injury worries, although Darren Currie is unlikely to start a second game in four days, so Oliver Lee may come into a five-man midfield.

Huddersfield could be without defender Lee Peltier, who picked up a knee injury in Friday’s win at MK Dons.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies has a knee injury, while long-term absentees Anthony Pilkington, Damien Johnson and Lee Ridehalgh are definitely out.
