                                                    Ground: Globe Arena , Kickoff: 19:45 , Att 4,029

                                                    Team news

                                                    Williams set for Shrimps bow Ryan Williams could make his long-awaited Morecambe debut when Dagenham travel to the Globe Arena.

                                                    Williams trained with the Shrimps over the summer and appeared to have secured a contract in October, only for international clearance issues to scupper the deal.

                                                    But the former Rhyl and Chester man has now been given the green light to join up with Jim Bentley's squad and may come into contention.

                                                    Williams' fellow midfielder Andy Fleming will be available having missed the goalless draw with Bradford on New Year's Day through illness.

                                                    Jordan Burrow is hoping to retain his place after the forward made a first start since recovering from knee ligament damage against the Bantams.

                                                    Bentley must adjust to life without striker Richard Brodie and full-back Jordan Mustoe after the pair returned to Crawley and Wigan at the end of their respective loan spells.

                                                    Supporters have been offered free entry to the match as Morecambe look to address the issue of falling attendances.

                                                    Dagenham boss John Still must decide whether to keep faith with a winning XI or freshen his line-up for the trip.

                                                    The Daggers bounced back from three successive defeats over the festive period to see off Accrington 2-0 on Saturday.

                                                    Still made two changes for the encounter, bringing in right-back Gavin Hoyte and striker Brian Woodall for Michael Spillane and Jake Reed respectively.

                                                    The Dagenham boss is again expected to be at full-strength for the encounter at Globe Park and is never one to tinker too much with his side, although a fifth game in 14 days will give him plenty to think about.

                                                    Parrish pounces to dump Daggers Andy Parrish scored his first Morecambe goal as the club's decision to offer free admission to all supporters paid dividends with three vital points in a 2-1 home win over Dagenham.

                                                    Parrish scored his first goal in more than 140 first-team appearances as Jim Bentley's side came from behind to record their first win in seven games.

                                                    The Shrimps got off to the worst possible start when they went a goal down after just six minutes. Matthew Saunders swung in a corner from the right which flew across the Morecambe penalty area before Brian Woodall produced a fine finish to volley past Barry Roche from 12 yards.

                                                    It was a goal that silenced the home crowd and the Daggers almost doubled their advantage after 15 minutes when Stewart Drummond headed towards his own goal forcing a vital clearance from Kevin Ellison.

                                                    Morecambe raised their game in the second half and levelled after 53 minutes with Jordan Burrow scoring his first goal of the season. Lewis Alessandra crossed to the far post and Ellison headed back into the danger area with Burrow in the right place at the right time to bundle the ball past Chris Lewington from close range.

                                                    Morecambe continued to attack the visitors and were denied a second with an excellent save from Lewington to tip away a sweetly-struck Ellison strike from the edge of the box.

                                                    Gary McDonald then saw a close-range volley superbly cleared off the line by Scott Doe before the Shrimps took the lead with 11 minutes to go when Parrish steamed in at the far post to force the ball over the line from close range after a superb run and cross from Alessandra.
