DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still will decide on the future of midfielder Danny Spiller in the next few days.

The former Millwall and Gillingham player (pictured right), has endured a frustrating spell at the club, with injury restricting him to just six appearances since he joined in September.

"Danny's contract ends in early January, we are going to sit down and have a chat about it," said the boss, who has agreed to keep Nana Ofori-Twumasi at the club for another month.

"Hopefully, we can come to an arrangement, he's been unlucky with an injury since he's been here, but he's a good player.

"He's working hard on his fitness and all being well, we will look to extend his deal."

Daggers travel to League Two strugglers Northampton Town on Boxing Day, before entertaining lowly Cheltenham Town on Monday, and Still is gearing his side for two tough battles.

"They would both view the first half of the season as a disappointment, but maybe look to bring in the new year with some new fortunes," he said.

"It's funny that last season they were in a higher level, but now they are looking to take a scalp against a team like us."

Defender Will Antwi remains a major doubt for both matches, but Still himself is hoping to get the all-clear from doctors after suffering illness.

"I'm alright, I'm going in for a little procedure but it should be fine," he said.

"I'm hoping to be out on the touchline for both matches should they go ahead."
