Dagenham manager John Still will be without new signing Josh Scott for the trip to face Crewe on the opening day of the League Two season.
The striker will miss the Daggers' first trip to Gresty Road through suspension as he sits out the third and final game of a ban picked up last season with Hayes & Yeading.
Fellow forward Mark Nwokeji remains two weeks away from a return to training as he continues his eight-month lay-off with a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Defender Anwar Uddin has not trained since the first training session in July due to a bang on his leg while Wesley Thomas picked up a leg injury at Braintree 10 days ago and has also sat out training.
Still's side won their opening day fixture 6-0 last season against Chester and will hope for another victory 12 months on.
