Peterborough v Dagenham preview

Date published: Monday 11th November 2013 4:13

The Posh are sweating on the fitness of Jack Payne after the midfielder was forced off during the second half of the FA Cup win over Exeter at the weekend, having picked up a knock.

Payne will be monitored ahead of the Southern Section quarter-final.

New signing Kyle Vassell is unlikely to feature as he struggles with a dead leg picked up in his final appearance for former club Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday.

Midfield duo Danny Kearns and Nathaniel Knight-Percival miss out through injury while Lee Tomlin serves the last game of his three-match ban.

The visitors will be without Scott Doe after the defender was forced off in the second half of Saturday’s 3-0 FA Cup defeat at Bristol City due to an ankle injury and left Ashton Gate on crutches and wearing a cast around his lower leg.

Luke Wilkinson, having returned from a shoulder injury in recent weeks, is set to step in against the League One promotion-chasers.

Daggers boss Wayne Burnett is likely to make tactical changes at London Road, with Femi Ilesanmi, Sean Shields and Chris Dickson among those pushing to start.

Winger Tommy Rowe is back in contention for Peterborough.

The former Stockport player has been struggling with a groin strain but is available while right-back Mark Little could also play after recovering from an ankle injury.

Left-back Grant Basey is likely to be missing for a couple of weeks with a knee injury and fellow full-back Tom Kennedy only has a slight chance of being involved in the play-offs after damaging his knee ligaments in the reverse fixture at Dagenham.

Manager Darren Ferguson has no plans to rest any of his key players despite Posh already being safe in a play-off place.

Ferguson has seen his side win just two of the last nine games and he is keen to enter the play-offs on a high.

Dagenham & Redbridge will be without key winger Danny Green as they battle for their League One lives.

Green was instrumental in the 3-0 win over Carlisle last weekend but was sent-off after scoring a late goal for his second bookable offence.

He begins a two-match ban so Darren Currie will come in to replace him as the Daggers look for a win which could keep them in the division if results go their way elsewhere.

Centre-half Scott Doe will miss the game with a hamstring injury so Will Antwi will keep his place.

John Still’s side have won their last league away game of the season every year since they joined the Football League.
