Dagenham v Wimbledon preview

Team news for Wednesday's League Two clash between Dagenham & Redbridge and AFC Wimledon at Victoria Road.

Zavon Hines will miss Dagenham's clash at home to AFC Wimbledon on New Year's Day through suspension.

The forward was shown his fifth booking of the season in Sunday's 1-1 draw at League Two leaders Chesterfield and now serves an automatic one-match ban.

Billy Bingham (knee) and Matt Saunders (ankle) are expected to remain on the sidelines as the Daggers aim to end a four-match winless run.

Manager Wayne Burnett made three changes against the Spireites and Femi Ilesanmi, Medy Elito and Chris Dickson, among others, will be hoping to earn recalls to face the Dons.

George Francomb will be available for AFC Wimbledon when they travel to Dagenham.

The midfielder was sent off during the Boxing Day defeat by Southend but Wimbledon appealed against the decision and the red card has since been rescinded by the FA, meaning he will not serve a three-match ban.

Defender Barry Fuller needs a fitness test after he suffered a dead leg during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Plymouth and was replaced by Will Antwi, who was making his first appearance of the season following hernia surgery.

Striker Michael Smith, who scored his 10th goal of the season against Plymouth, will play his final game for Neal Ardley's side before heading back to Charlton at the end of his loan spell.
