Mark Cousins expected to take over keeping duties
Dagenham & Redbridge’s first choice goalkeeper Mark Cousins is expected to be back between the sticks when Plymouth Argyle visit this evening.
Pilgrims come to Victoria Road having conceded just four goals in their last eight league matches.
Wayne Burnett’s team were impressive defensively during January and the start of February, but they have started to concede goals more regularly of late.
They have conceded 12 in their last eight games – five of them coming in their last two fixtures against Southend United (3-1 loss) and Tranmere Rovers (3-2 win).
Liam O’Brien has deputised for Cousins, who suffered a nasty cut near his eye against Hartlepool United on March 3, in those matches, but the former Colchester United stopper is expected to start against Plymouth tonight after Daggers boss confirmed he was back in contention.
Burnett could make changes elsewhere too with Abu Ogogo possibly coming in for Damian Batt at right-back, whilst Alex Jakubiak could also return to the starting team.
Meanwhile forward Christian Doidge is back after completing his loan spell with Conference Premier Dartford last weekend.
