DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still is still hopeful of strengthening his squad before the transfer window slams shut on Monday.

Crewe's Billy Jones still remains high on Still's list, despite the two club's unable to agree a fee for the former Leyton Orient man, but the Daggers boss has other targets in mind to fill the left back position.

"We want to bring in a permanent left back, because I like having my own players in," said Still. "There are two or three who we've identified as the right ones and now its about seeing what happens.
