Dean Parrett and Jamie McCombe are both doubts after picking up knocks against Orient and missing last Saturday.
After playing 30 minutes last Saturday, Chris Whelpdale could be in the frame for a starting place for the first time this season.
Ronnie Henry is also in contention as he continues to recover from illness.

The story so far…
Daggers have had a poor start to the season with only 1 point after four games, although last time out a 1-1 draw at Wycombe showed some positive signs despite the last minute equaliser for the home team.
After losing 3-0 to Portsmouth on the first day of the season, Dagenham lost 3-1 at home to Leyton Orient which was sandwiched between a 4-1 League Cup loss at Cheltenham. Defeat to Exeter followed before the 1-1 draw at Wycombe.
As well as looking for their first win, Dagenham will also be hoping to get their first home points of the season on Saturday after losing their first two.
Head to Head:
Something’s got to give - across 25 meetings between the two sides, we are all even. Boro have won 12, drawn 1 and lost 12. Looking a little closer at the stats, Boro have the slightest of edges – scoring 35 goals to 34.
