Procter is back on his feet, complete with Terry Butcher bandage. Just changing his top on the side of the pitch.

Procter is coming on for Bury
56 - Jensen is down injured after putting in a courageous challenge to deny Azeez after a Veseli pass across goal went straight to the Daggers attacker.
The Bury goalkeeper is back on his feet but lucky not to be heading for an early bath after looking to foul Azeez as last man. No foul was given.
58 – Nardiello only has to roll the ball across goal to give Mayor a shooting chance, but the ball holds up in surface water.
66 – GOAL – Bury 1 DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE 1 – Luke Norris calmly opens his body and curls a right-footed shot across goal and into the bottom corner.
62 – Another stunning save from Lewington, one-handed again diving to his right to block a Platt shot from a central position, 10 yards out.
60 – GOAL – BURY 1 Dagenham & Redbridge 0 – Chris Hussey fires home at the near post from a tight angle after being put in with a neat reverse ball from Danny Mayor.
53 - Jensen bursts out of his goal to clear after an attempted McNulty clearance rebounded into the path of Norris.
The ball is really starting to pull up in the surface water on the pitch. Dire conditions here now but hopefully it won't turn into a farce as Bury are continuing to play well.
46 - SUB - Ilesanmi and Azeez on for D'Ath and Connors.
Bury players are getting a well-earned round of applause for their effort as they leave the pitch.
Bury 0 Dagenham & Redbridge 0
45 - Jones runs inside and tries a left-footed curler from outside the box on the run but fails to get his foot round the ball enough to hit the target.
42 - Lazy shot from Norris skied as he leans back and swings his right leg. Could have caught Bury cold there.
41 - Fantastic one-handed save from Lewington denies Platt from close range following a pull back from Nardiello. Should have broke the net but great reactions from the Daggers keeper to stick out a strong arm.
Jones is really putting a shoft in here. Tireless running and some excellent crosses - just needs one to land cleanly for the strikers.
35 - McNulty puts in a great interception before running down the left toucline and sending in a telling cross.
36 - Nardiello creates some space in the box but his shot is blocked by D'Ath.
36 - McNulty just fails to turn home a Mills flick-on from a Hussey corner, diving for the ball at the back post.
37 - Tutte shot is blocked from a Platt lay-off.
32 - Norris runs from deep, gliding past a couple of players before rifling a low shot just wide from the edge of the box.
31 - Elito cross very nearly turned on goal by Chambers.
31 - Jones picks out Nardiello from the right but the striker is ruled to pushed his marker as he heads the ball back across goal.
28 - Hoyte makes an important block to cut out a Nardiello pull-back.
29 - Nardiello just fails to get his head on to a great ball from the left from Mayor. Would have been a certain goal.
26 - The ball falls to Ogogo from the corner but the midfielder blazes a good chance wide from eight yards.
26 - Ogogo shot deflected well wide for a Dagenham corner.
25 - Tame free-kick given to Dagenham following a flap from keeper Chris Lewington in the box.
23 - Chambers fires over a wasteful shot with Daggers flooding the Bury box following a great searching bal from Elito to Hoyte.
21 - Scott Doe heads a wicked Jones cross clear despite calls from the Daggers keeper. The defender wisely clears his lines with Nardiello lurking.
20 - Jones loops a header just over following a good deep cross from Hussey.
Both teams showing some good touches and doing their best to keep the ball on the deck, despite puddles of standing water starting to form.
16 - Nardiello slips in between defender and keeper to claim a long ball from Veseli, but he failed to find the target from a tight angle.
The weather, by the way, is pretty poor. Chucking it down and noticeably colder. Proper Northern weather...
Bury have had the majority of the ball in the opening stages, starting the game in a 4-4-2 formation, with Danny Mayor playing on the left rather than as an attacking midfielder and Veseli and Hussey lining up as traditional full-backs.
They can easilyt switch to the usual 3-4-3 at any time, just possibly trying to throw the Daggers management team a bit of a curve ball.
9 - YELLOW - Connors
8 - Clever long ball from Jones almost puts Nardiello clear.
5 - Good work from Danny Mayor on the left but his cross goes high and long.
Noticeable round of applause for Brian Jensen's first clearance. He went long, despite being dragged off for one too many of those at Southend last week.
Pitch looks to be holding up - just - following another big shower at the JD Stadium. The players are out now for another big game in the end of season run-in. A first win in six matches would do nicely here.
Bury boss David Flitcroft makes two changes to the side that started Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at Torquay.
Brian Jensen returns in goal in place of teenager Reice Charles-Cook, who drops to the bench.
And Chris Hussey makes his home debut, replacing the injured Tom Soares in the left wing-back role.
The Burton Albion full-back made his first Bury start in last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Southend, but lost his place in midweek following the return of captain Craig Jones.
The only other change to the matchday squad is the return of Andy Procter, who takes a place on the bench following Tommy Miller's failure to regain match fitness after missing the last two games with an ankle knock and thigh strain.
Procter has not featured in the squad for the last four matches and has not started a game since the 4-0 defeat at Chesterfield on January 11.
The central midfielder's last game time came following a 69th-minute introduction in the 1-0 victory over Wycombe on February 1.
