Billy Bingham is pushing for his first start in over five weeks as Dagenham host Torquay.
The versatile midfielder replaced Kevin Maher at half-time on Saturday and duly played his part in an impressive 2-1 victory at promotion-chasing Rotherham.
Interim boss Wayne Burnett, who clinched his first win since taking over from John Still, will now be tempted to go with Bingham from the off against a Gulls side who have lost eight and drawn one of their last nine matches.
Burnett has no new injury or suspension concerns but striker Sam Williams remains sidelined with the minor knee problem which forced him to miss out at the weekend, although it is not the same knee in which he suffered a cruciate ligament injury last season.
Torquay are set to be without Elliot Benyon after his loan spell from Southend came to an end.
Gulls boss Alan Knill has regularly started the striker since taking charge at Plainmoor, and will be keen to arrange a loan extension, but the 3-1 home defeat to Oxford was the final match of his initial one-month stay.
Knill revealed on-loan midfielder Joss Labadie's substitution on Saturday was due to cramp, not an injury to the Notts County man, and he is set to start his second game for the club.
Craig Easton is their only absentee with a calf injury while Lloyd Macklin and Danny Stevens are both hoping to be given the nod after coming on in the second half on Saturday.
That loss to the U's was their eighth in nine npower League Two games and they now sit just two points above the relegation zone.
