Lund: Serving a suspension

Lund: Serving a suspension

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Bristol Rovers and Dagenham & Redbridge at the Memorial Stadium.

Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee will welcome back two players from suspension, but will be missing another regular for three games.

Wayne Brown and Eliot Richards missed the defeat to Wycombe on Saturday after their bans but in the dying seconds of that 2-0 loss at Adams Park, Matt Lund picked up a second yellow and became the fourth Rovers player to be sent off in two weeks - meaning he will miss the visit of John Still's men.

Captain Matt Gill limped off just before the hour mark with a knee injury after a heavy challenge, meaning the former Exeter man is a doubt.

Rovers are now third-bottom in League Two and have not picked up three points since October 20.

Dagenham boast no new injury or suspension problems.

Fit-again pair Dominic Green and Josh Scott are the only two players providing manager Still with any concern as they still seek minutes under their belt before being considered fully match ready.

Still does have options should he wish to freshen up his side, with the likes of Kevin Maher, Gavin Hoyte, Billy Bingham and Brian Woodall all pushing for recalls.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Still told Dagenham's official website: "Bristol Rovers is one of my old clubs and I always look forward to going back there and it should be a great game."
