DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still admits it will be hard not to avoid hearing about his side's League Two trip to Torquay United tonight, despite doctors orders to relax.

The 59-year-old underwent keyhole surgery on his gall bladder yesterday, but spoke to the Post from hospital this morning, before he should be discharged to return home this afternoon.

"The doctor's are pleased with how it went and they've said this should be the end of everything, which I hope is true, as I've been in murderous pain at times," he said.

"I'm hoping to get back home tonight and have been told to relax by the doctors but it's hard with our game on.

"I don't really like to watch what's happening too much as I'm not there, and if I had dogs, I would want to go and walk them.

"But when you're at home, you can't help putting Sky Sports on and I'm sure I'll have plenty of people letting me know what is happening."

Daggers loanee Yoann Folly could be in line for his first start for the trip to Plainmoor with Graeme Montgomery missing out and Peter Gain moving to the left flank.
