Kevin Lisbie: Hoping to start

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Leyton Orient and Swindon Town at the Matchroom Stadium.

Chris Dagnall could keep his place ahead of Kevin Lisbie in Leyton Orient's attack when they host Swindon.

Striker Lisbie was an unused substitute for the 2-0 win over Stevenage in midweek due to a minor back complaint and given Dagnall scored what was his first home goal for the club, his return to the XI is far from guaranteed.

Orient boss Russell Slade has plenty of attacking options at his disposal with Shaun Batt now having made two appearances as a substitute following his hamstring tear.

Full-back Elliot Omozusi has, though, missed three straight games with a troublesome groin problem.

Swindon will be without six players when they make the trip to Leyton Orient.

Former Newcastle striker Nile Ranger has suffered a grade three hamstring tear which will sideline him for between eight and 12 weeks, meaning Michael Smith looks likely to start having been cup-tied for the Robins' penalty shoot-out defeat to Peterborough in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Influential midfielder Alex Pritchard has suffered a grade one medial ligament strain and is ruled out along with Louis Thompson (ankle). The Robins will also assess Dany N'Guessan who has a groin strain and is touch and go.

Jamie Reckord returns to contention having also been ineligible against Posh which gives manager Mark Cooper another option as his side look to bounce back from Monday night's disappointment. Full-backs Nathan Thompson and Jay McEveley serve the final matches of their bans while defender Grant Hall remains a long-term absentee.
