Maher: Still out for Daggers

Maher: Still out for Daggers

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Dagenham and Accrington at the L.B Barking & Dagenham Stadium.

Luke Wilkinson will take his place in defence for Dagenham's home game having won his appeal against last week's dismissal.

Wilkinson, who will keep his centre-back spot alongside Scott Doe, saw red early on in the 3-1 defeat at Southend but the ban was overturned earlier this week after an appeal was upheld.

Kevin Maher (foot) and Matt Saunders (ankle) remain the only absentees, with the latter slightly further down the line in his recovery and looking for match fitness.

Manager John Still has some selection decisions to make, with Brian Woodall and Sam Williams battling it out to start in attack and Dominic Green threatening Medy Elito's starting berth in midfield.

The Daggers are still looking for their first league win of the season but face a tough ask against an Accrington side boasting a 100% away record.

Danny Schofield is available to make his Accrington debut.

Schofield joined Stanley on a three-month emergency loan deal from npower League Two counterparts Rotherham this week and boss Paul Cook has suggested he is most likely to feature as a substitute.

James Gray is in contention for a place in attack once more having missed last weekend's 1-1 draw with Bradford while on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s.

Centre-back Toto Nsiala returned to start against the Bantams but his ankle complaint will continue to be assessed.

Fellow defender Dean Winnard and midfield George Miller are nursing knocks.

Stanley have started the season in impressive fashion and lie fifth in the fledgling League Two table with 10 points from five matches.
