Morecambe are sweating on the fitness of defenders Nick Fenton and Jordan Mustoe ahead of the League Two clash at home to Dagenham.

Both men picked up injuries and were substituted during last weekend's 1-1 draw with Oxford at the Globe Arena.

Shrimps goalkeeper Barry Roche expects a tough test from Dagenham, who are looking to prevent Jim Bentley's side making it four npower League Two games unbeaten.

"Dagenham came up to our place last season and they hadn't won in something like 12 games and they beat us," Roche told Press Association Sport.

"So we know all about them. We've had quite a few tasty encounters with them over the years.

"There's no way we'll be underestimating them but at the same time we know they won't be underestimating us and they'll be expecting a tough game too."

Forward duo Danny Carlton and Jordan Burrow (both knee) remain on the sidelines.
