Burton v Dag & Red preview

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Burton Albion and Dagenham & Redbridge at the Pirelli Stadium.

Zeli Ismail is pushing for a place in Burton's starting line-up for the visit of Dagenham.

The on-loan Wolves winger, who on Thursday extended his stay at the Brewers until the end of the season, came off the bench to net the winner in Saturday's victory at Morecambe.

Chris Hussey and Billy Kee also made an impact after they were introduced in the second half at the Globe Arena and will be hoping for a promotion to Gary Rowett's first XI.

Rob Lainton, borrowed from Bury, kept a clean sheet on his debut and will continue between the sticks, while forward Michael Symes is again expected to be occupying the sidelines with a knee problem.

Dagenham boss Wayne Burnett may be considering changes for the trip to high-flying Burton.

Burnett kept faith with the same line-up for a third successive match at home to Hartlepool last weekend but watched his side put in a disappointing display before falling to a 2-0 defeat.

The likes of Billy Bingham, Femi Ilesanmi, Brian Saah as well as recent loan signing Adebayo Azeez will all be pushing for starting berths against the Brewers.

Midfielder Luke Howell remains sidelined due to the ankle injury he sustained late last month.
