WEYMOUTH captain Josh McQuoid could return for the trip to Vanarama National League leaders Dagenham & Redbridge tonight (7.45pm).

McQuoid, 31, missed the 1-1 draw with Notts County on Saturday with a non-coronavirus illness.

The former Northern Ireland international is one of three question marks hanging over Weymouth players before the Daggers game.

Xander McBurnie (tendonitis) and Ben Thomson continue to struggle, the latter having twisted an ankle last week on his return to training following an Achilles problem.

On McQuoid, Terras’ boss Brian Stock told Echosport: “I had to keep that one under wraps.

“He’s been a fantastic player for us over the last couple of games and a real threat for the opposition, so I didn’t want (Notts) to get the advantage.

“He’s had a virus, it’s not Covid-related but fingers crossed he can get out.

“Ben would’ve been (available) but he rolled his ankle in training in literally the last minute. He’s been really unfortunate lately.

“He did try and test it out (Saturday) but it was sore so he’s a doubt. Alexander, he won’t be fit, however he’s making good progress.”

On Dagenham themselves, Weymouth had the luxury of analysing them on BT Sport during their 2-1 win at King’s Lynn on Saturday.

Stock said: “We get a bit of an advantage watching that live but it’s another tough test. They’ve got off to a good start.

“Every single player in the dressing room has contributed, no matter if it’s off the pitch or on the pitch.

“We go into the game at Dagenham with 18, 19 players all thinking they’ve got a chance of starting.

“It’s a real strength and if we can get momentum going, it’s a powerful thing.”
