Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett has a relatively fit squad to choose from ahead of tonight’s clash with 2008 FA Cup winners Portsmouth at Victoria Road.

Winger Zavon Hines is out for the foreseeable future, but Daggers have everybody else fit and ready to call upon if needed.

But it is expected the Victoria Road outfit will be unchanged from the weekend win at York City, despite the match coming just a couple of days after their Bootham Crescent success.

Jamie Cureton, despite being 39-years-old, will be itching to play after scoring three times in his last two matches and he is just two short of 250 league goals.

Ayo Obileye’s loan from Charlton Athletic was extended after Saturday’s win so he will partner Scott Doe at the heart of Daggers defence and Alex Jakubiak will again be expected to start up front - with Daniel Carr on the bench.

Captain Abu Ogogo was restored to the starting team against the Minstermen slotting in at right-back and impressing. He will again keep Damian Batt out of the team.

Portsmouth are likely to be unchanged following their first win since November 22 on Saturday against Hartlepool Town.

Captain Ben Chorley missed out at the weekend with an ankle injury and this fixture is expected to come too soon for him to return.

Therefore Andy Awford will likely pick the same 11 and stick with his 3-4-1-2 formation at Victoria Road this evening.

Matt Tubbs, who scored his first goal for Pompey against Hartlepool, will be up front alongside Ryan Taylor with the talented Jed Wallace just behind them.

Danny Hollands and James Dunne will be in central midfield with Josh Passley at right wing-back and Dan Butler on the opposite flank.

Whilst Joe Devera, Paul Robinson and Jack Whatmough will line up alongside each other in defence in front of goalkeeper Paul Jones.

On loan West Ham United forward Paul McCallum misses out through suspension following an incident with referee Lee Collins against Southend United on January 24.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
