Boucaud likely to be back after Trinidad & Tobago travels

Dagenham & Redbridge could make as many as three changes when they welcome Hartlepool United to Victoria Road, including the return of captain Andre Boucaud.

The midfielder missed the club’s last two games on international duty with Trinidad & Tobago and could take over from Kane Ferdinand, with whom he is yet to form a convincing partnership in the middle of the pitch.

Even if Joe Widdowson is unable to shake off the injury that kept him out of the Yeovil Town trip, Ashley Hemmings is expected to revert to his usual left wing role with Jack Connors taking over at left back after playing for Ireland under-21s.

Ayo Obileye also missed the match in Somerset but his injury was not considered long term and is likely to start alongside Nyron Nosworthy in defence, pushing Justin Hoyte out to the right.

Jodi Jones was forced off at the break with a groin injury at Huish Park and could miss out against Pools with QPR loanee Jake Mulraney moving to the right.

In terms of long term injury news, the full extent of Zavon Hines’ knee injury is still not yet known while Matt Richards remains sidelined with a foot problem.

One man who can remove himself from the absentee list after the Hartlepool game is Joss Labadie, whose ban will have expired when Daggers travel to York City on Tuesday.

Probable XI: O’Brien; Hoyte, Nosworthy, Obileye, Connors; Boucaud, Raymond; Mulraney, Chambers, Hemmings; Cureton
