Dag & Red v Barnet preview

Date published: Friday 23rd December 2011 5:00

Abu Ogogo is suspended for Dagenham.

The midfielder was given his marching orders during last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Burton and now starts a three-match ban which rules him out over the festive period, with Billy Bingham likely to step in.

Otherwise, manager John Still is unlikely to make many, if any, changes to a Daggers side who have started to show signs of revival in their last two matches with the impressive point at the Pirelli Stadium following FA Cup success at Walsall.

Luke Howell (knee), Rob Edmans (broken leg) and Sam Williams (knee) continue to miss out, although influential defender Mark Arber is back in training following his double hernia operation and could make the bench against his former club, kick-off 1pm.

There are also reunions for Still, who formerly managed Barnet, and Bees defender Anwar Uddin who captained the Daggers to two promotions during a six-year spell at Victoria Road.

Barnet manager Lawrie Sanchez will be without the services of midfielder Clovis Kamdjo.

Kamdjo will serve a one-match ban after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 2-2 draw with Cheltenham.

Otherwise, Sanchez has no new injuries to contend with and the only player on the sidelines is striker Steve Kabba, who is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Defender Michael Hector overcame a shin injury to play the full 90 minutes against Cheltenham, while Jack Saville and Charlie Taylor are also available for selection after overcoming injuries.

The Bees have gone four matches in all competitions without a win and are only six points clear of the relegation zone.
