Dagenham & Redbridge could name an unchanged XI for the trip to Maidstone United in the National League this afternoon.

The Essex club travel to Kent to complete their busy bank holiday weekend of games and will be hoping to take maximum points from the two tests.

Daggers comfortably beat Bromley 5-1 on Saturday thanks to a brace from Michael Cheek and goals from Morgan Ferrier, Kevin Lokko and Corey Whitely at Victoria Road.

The only probable change the side may look to make from that match is bringing Oliver Hawkins into the starting line-up.

Hawkins, who has been linked with a move away from the club all summer, could return to the line-up after replacing Cheek in the fifty second minute after the striker took a knock.

If Cheek is fit and raring to go, he will most likely maintain his place in the side, after scoring a brace and having an impressive start to the season.

Mark Cousins is set to continue in goal, with Ling, Craig Robson, Kevin Lokko and Luke Pennell in defence.

Andre Boucaud will help anchor the midfield alongside Matt Robinson, while the likes of Fejiri Okenabirhie, Corey Whitely and Morgan Ferrier will operate in the space behind the forward.

Daggers possible XI: Cousins; Ling, N’Gala, Robson, Pennell; Robinson, Boucaud; Okenabirhie, Whitely, Ferrier, Hawkins
