Stockley misses Daggers clash

Torquay will be without Jayden Stockley when they face Dagenham.

The striker serves the second of a three-game ban having been sent off against Scunthorpe earlier this month and will be unavailable as the Gulls plot a great escape.

Manager Chris Hargreaves will once again give the Gulls' promising young loanees a chance to impress with Shamir Goodwin (Brighton), Shaquile Coulthirst (Spurs) and Baily Cargill (Bournemouth) all set to be involved once more having helped them to a vital 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers last weekend.

The Gulls cannot be relegated at Plainmoor on Friday but anything less than a win means local rivals Exeter could send them down on Monday afternoon.

Dagenham defender Scott Doe is in the middle of a three-match ban for his red card for violent conduct against Wycombe.

Luke Wilkinson played 90 minutes last weekend on his return from an ankle injury but Rhys Murphy (groin) will miss the rest of the season and Zavon Hines (knee) also remains sidelined.

The 4-1 home defeat by Portsmouth all but ended Dagenham's play-off hopes, with eight points separating them from the top seven with only four games to go.
