Luke Wilkinson: Not expected back as yet

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Dagenham & Redbridge and Oxford United at Victoria Road.

Dagenham will continue without three first-team regulars when they take on Oxford.

Luke Wilkinson (ankle), Zavon Hines (knee) and Rhys Murphy (groin) have all watched on from the sidelines in recent weeks and are not expected back in the near future.

Winger Blair Turgott is set to make his debut after joining on loan from West Ham and Daggers boss Wayne Burnett could decide to make more changes after the midweek draw with Accrington.

That stalemate was Dagenham's second in a row and although they are unbeaten in seven games, they need wins to close the seven-point gap to the play-off places.

Oxford have suffered a massive injury blow ahead of their trip to Dagenham.

Defender Johnny Mullins, who has made 41 appearances this season, has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture of a metatarsal, an injury he picked up at Chesterfield earlier this month.

His absence is a big loss for Gary Waddock as the new head coach is already without the suspended Tom Newey, who serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Andy Whing, who returned to the side for the first time since November in their 1-0 win over Hartlepool last Friday before sitting out the loss against Southend, could come back into the starting line-up as the U's look to bounce back from Monday's emphatic 3-0 loss.
