Matt Harrold: Pushing for a recall

Matt Harrold: Pushing for a recall

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Bristol Rovers and Dagenham & Redbridge at the Memorial Stadium.

John Ward could name an unchanged line-up for the third successive match as Bristol Rovers look to extend their unbeaten run when they host Dagenham.

The Pirates' impressive victory over Plymouth on Saturday made it six games without defeat and Ward is unlikely to shuffle his pack as they look to continue that fine form.

If he does decide to freshen things up then striker Matt Harrold, who returned from injury as a substitute on the weekend, is an option along with the likes of Steven Gillespie and Seanus Clucas.

Rovers have lost just once in their last 12 games - a run that stretches back to mid-October.

Dagenham are set to be without influential duo Rhys Murphy and Zavon Hines when they visit Bristol Rovers.

Murphy, a product of Arsenal's youth academy, has been nursing a groin injury for the past six weeks but, despite playing through the pain, boss Wayne Burnett fears a spell on the sidelines may beckon for the 23-year-old.

Fellow forward Hines sustained an ankle knock in a development-team game last Tuesday and, after missing Saturday's 2-2 draw with Exeter, the former West Ham man could be out for three weeks at least.

Afolabi Obafemi (ankle) is nearing a first-team recall having not featured since New Year's Day while defender Jack Connors is close to a return following illness.
