Duo in Daggers picture Dagenham boss John Still must decide whether to hand recalls to John Akinde and Josh Parker for Good Friday's visit of Burton.
Striker Akinde and midfielder Parker both went into last weekend's 1-0 victory at Port Vale carrying knocks, with the former an unused substitute and the latter not even making the matchday 16.
Both have now recovered but Still faces a dilemma as to whether to tinker with a winning line-up following the superb victory at Vale Park, with Brian Woodall and Billy Bingham the two who came in.
A decision will also be made as to whether midfielders Peter Gain and Luke Howell (both knee) are ready to make their first-team returns after the pair both managed 90 minutes for the reserves earlier this week.
Matt Saunders has now undergone surgery to his troublesome ankle and has been ruled out for the rest of the season, joining Sam Williams (knee) and Kevin Maher (foot).
A total of 10 points from the last 12 on offer has left the Daggers five points and four places clear of the drop zone.
Jack Dyer should be fit for Burton's trip south.
Dyer has been nursing a leg injury since the goalless home draw against Crawley last Saturday but the midfielder is expected to recover.
Calvin Zola has resumed training after a back problem and is closing in on a return.
The striker has missed eight of the last 10 matches since sustaining the injury ahead of the 2-0 defeat at Cheltenham towards the end of February. He returned for the 1-0 defeat at Shrewsbury last month but aggravated the problem during the 4-1 home loss to Torquay in the next game.
The 27-year-old, Albion's joint-leading scorer this season with 12 goals, has seen a chiropractor and returned to training on Monday.
Defenders Tony James and Patrick Ada and midfielders Lionel Ainsworth, Cleveland Taylor and Seanan Clucas are options for caretaker manager Gary Rowett should he wish to make any changes.
Dag & Red vs Burton Albion

Woodall to the rescue for Daggers Brian Woodall fired home a late equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw against Burton and extend resurgent Dagenham's unbeaten run to five matches.
A first half of few chances saw Adam Pearson head Justin Richards' cross wide for the Brewers, while Michael Spillane saw his 30-yard effort pushed behind by goalkeeper Ross Atkins at the other end.
The second half quickly exploded into life, though, and the home side were denied the opening goal when John Akinde's low shot was blocked on the line by Andrew Corbett.
Burton quickly moved in front, however, when Jacques Maghoma curled a 25-yard effort spectacularly beyond the reach of `keeper Chris Lewington.
As Daggers pushed for an equaliser Scott Doe saw his header blocked on the line by Adam Bolder, with Burton desperately hanging on.
The visitors could have made the points safe but Lionel Ainsworth shot straight at Lewington while Bolder should have done better with an effort after a swift counter-attack.
