Youngsters who impressed last week likely to be handed chance again

Jodi Jones is expected keep his place in the Dagenham & Redbridge starting XI for the trip to Exeter City.

The 17-year-old struck the final goal in the 4-0 rout against Accrington Stanley which was his first start for the club.

Ade Yusuff limped off injured shortly before half time in that match and may miss out on the final match of his season.

Player of the Year Jamie Cureton could take over up front, the striker having replaced Yusuff last week before notching his 18th league goal of the year.

Captain Abu Ogogo is likely to start the game at St James Park with Andre Boucaud picking up a knock against Stanley, while Frankie Raymond and Billy Bingham will keep their places in the middle of the park.

Ayo Obileye is free to play again following a three-match ban and may make his last appearance for the Daggers before returning to Charlton Athletic following the end of his loan spell.

However he may struggle to displace Ian Gayle, the youngster having impressed since coming into the starting lineup against Luton Town.

There may also be one last look at Alex Jakubiak in Dagenham colours before his loan from recently-promoted Watford expires.

Liam O’Brien (groin) and Zavon Hines (knee) are still long-term injury concerns while Joss Labadie remains suspended.
