City injury crisis ahead of Daggers test

CHELMSFORD City's recent spate of illnesses within the squad show no sign of letting-up as Coca-Cola League Two club Dagenham & Redbridge come to Melbourne Park tonight for an Essex Senior Cup clash, the eventual winners securing a passage through to the semi-finals of the competition.

CHELMSFORD City's recent spate of illnesses within the squad show no sign of letting-up as Coca-Cola League Two club Dagenham & Redbridge come to Melbourne Park tonight for an Essex Senior Cup clash, the eventual winners securing a passage through to the semi-finals of the competition.

At least three players are almost certainly out of contention as the Clarets aim to repeat their home victory over the Daggers at the same stage last season, when roles were reversed and John Still's men suffered from a mounting injury list.

Jon Keeling, Bertie Brayley and Kevin James were sent home from Melbourne training on Saturday following the postponement of the Blue Square South clash with Hampton & Richmond Borough and are all unlikely to feature in tonight's tie, which kicks off at 7.30pm.
