Justin Hoyte set for starting berth at Broadhall Way

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett hopes the trip to Stevenage in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy will provide his team with a welcome distraction from their poor showing in League Two.

With only one win and seven points in the league to their name so far this season, Daggers find themselves in the relegation zone.

However, the victory at Cambridge United in the previous round of the JPT handed the east Londoners their first triumph of the season and Burnett is targeting more success at Broadhall Way.

“We’ll be trying. We want to win, it’s not for the want of trying. Maybe it’s a lack of concentration, focus, quality – I don’t know. Well, I do but it is what it is at the moment.”

As for who will be available to the Daggers manager, Matt Richards is still a long term injury concern while Joss Labadie is still suspended although his return is now just a matter of days away.

Recent addition Justin Hoyte could make his first start for his new club, taking over at right back from Jack Connors who is set to play for Ireland under-21s in Italy on Friday.

Nyron Nosworthy may return at centre back in place of Clevid Dikamona, who didn’t have the best of times against Mansfield Town on Saturday.

Frankie Raymond is expected to be named in the matchday squad once again as he continues his comeback from an injury which has plagued him during the early part of the season, although he is likely to be on the bench rather than starting.

Don’t expect wholesale changes though with stringent selection rules stating Burnett must name six players who started at home to Mansfield in his teamsheet.
