Football - Hoyte returns boosts Daggers

Gavin Hoyte makes a timely return as Dagenham play host to League Two leaders Rochdale.

PA Sport Report

The right-back completed his three-match suspension after Tuesday's 1-0 win at Southend, which leaves the Daggers just six points off top spot despite currently lying in the bottom half of the table.

His return comes after centre-back Luke Wilkinson sustained a shoulder injury at Roots Hall in midweek - meaning Scott Doe is set to switch from right-back to the heart of defence against Dale and allow Hoyte to slot back into his familiar position.

Manager Wayne Burnett is not expected to have any other injury or suspension concerns.
