Leyton Orient Team News

RUSSELL Slade will be forced to make some changes for Saturday's trip to East London to face Barry Hearn's Leyton Orient. Ashley Sestanovich starts a two match suspension following his sending off. Midfielder Jason Crowe will join him in the stand, suffering from a ligament injury.

Sestanovich is suspended for both the Orient game and next week's big local derby with Lincoln City at Blundell Park after his moment of madness on Tuesday against the Cobblers.

Another major doubt is left back Ronnie Bull, who injured both his ankles during Tuesday's defeat at home to Northampton.

On the plus side, midfielder Terry Fleming is once again available for selection, and will almost certainly return straight to the starting line-up alongside Pinault in the centre of the park.

Defender Tony Crane played his first football of the season in a midweek defeat for the reserves at Huddersfield, but the former Owl is some way off a return to first team action at present.

The Londoners, currently placed just below the play-offs, have several players out with medium to long-term injuries. Defender Gabriel Zakuani has a knee injury that will keep him out for a number of weeks and fellow defender Mark Peters has a toe problem.

Former Hull City striker Gary Alexander is still on the sidelines with a knee injury, as is fellow forward Jabo Ibehre, who likewise has a knee problem.

Summer signing Lee Steele (No. 10) is Orient's top scorer this season. The Liverpool-born striker has found the net 12 times for the O's. Steele's strike partner Andy Scott (No. 11) is another player to watch out for, as is former Wycombe midfielder Michael Simpson (No. 4).

Predicted sides:

Town (3-4-1-2): Williams; Forbes, Ramsden, Jones; McDermott, Pinault, Flemming, Young; Parkinson; Reddy, Gritton Subs: Coldicott, Mansaram, Fraser, Downey, Bull, North

Orient (from) Harrison, White, Mackie, Miller, Donny Barnard, McMahon, Simpson, Scott, Lockwood, Steele, Chillingworth, Hunt, Lee Barnard, Morris, Saah, Echanomi

Fishy Prediction: 1-1
