Martin Allen makes three changes for Barnet's trip to Dagenham & Redbridge with top scorer John Akinde back after injury.

Akinde, whose ten goals make him the Bees' top scorer, comes into the starting XI along with a fit-again Michael Nelson and Alie Sesay for his full debut.

He had missed the goalless draws against Carlisle United and Stevenage.

Included on the bench is new signing James Pearson and transfer-listed teenage striker Matt Stevens.

Subs: O'Brien (GK), Connors, Dikamona, McClure, Chambers, Jones, Doidge.

Barnet: Stephens; Sesay, Nelson, N'Gala Johnson; Hackett, Togwell, Weston (c), Gambin; Batt, Akinde.

Subs: McKenzie-Lyle (GK), Champion, Muggleton, Shomotun, Stevens, Randall, Pearson.
