Daggers without McCallum as they seek cup glory

Dagenham & Redbridge v Salford City – Emirates FA Cup first round – The Chigwell Construction Stadium – Monday (7:45pm) – Preview

Dagenham & Redbridge remain without frontman, Paul McCallum for their televised Emirates FA Cup first-round clash with Sky Bet League Two outfit, Salford Coty at the Chigwell Construction Stadium on Monday evening.

McCallum was already serving a three-match ban following his early dismissal during the Daggers 2-1 fourth qualifying round victory at Wealdstone. However, as a result of another incident, a further two matches have been added to the ban.

The Daggers will be looking to spring a surprise against the Greater Manchester side. Nevertheless, their Vanarama National League form has been patchy of late, the East Londoners losing four of their last six, a sequence that has seen them slip out of the play-off places.

Salford’s league form has also been erratic. They arrive in the capital with only four wins to their name all season and sitting four points above the dropzone in seventeenth.
