Dag & Red v Luton preview

Senad Lulic: In hot water

Ayo Obileye is suspended for Dagenham after his red card against Carlisle on Saturday.

The defender was dismissed along with the Cumbrians’ Troy Archibald-Henville in the Daggers’ 1-0 defeat.

Boss Wayne Burnett said: “I don’t know why they were sent off. They were just hugging each other. No punches were thrown and it was just a case of players with lots of testosterone having a bit of a cuddle.”

Zavon Hines is out with a knee injury while Liam O’Brien (adductor) and Jon Nouble (knee) remain doubts.

Luton will make the trip without Alex Lawless, whose injury-plagued campaign has taken another turn for the worse with the Welshman contracting shingles.

The condition will keep the midfielder out of the game on Tuesday night and possibly against Hartlepool at the weekend. Lawless started just his seventh League Two match of the season against Burton on Saturday, before being withdrawn during the second half.

The Hatters hope to have Jonathan Smith available after his partner gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday.

However, goalkeeper Mark Tyler and midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu will remain out for Luton who, after losing eight of their last nine games, have fallen three points adrift of the play-off pack.
