Leyton Orient Vs Yeovil Town, Sat 2 Jan 2010

Next Story

Leyton Orient are set to recall Sean Thornton to the starting line-up for the clash with Yeovil.

Midfielder Thornton missed the 2-1 defeat to Southend due to a one-game suspension for accumulating five yellow cards.

Boss Geraint Williams will be hoping forward Ryan Jarvis overcomes flu after missing the last two matches while Scott McGleish is expected to continue up front after coming through 90 minutes on Monday following a knock to his knee.

Striker James Scowcroft is out with a groin injury although it is not expected to keep him sidelined for long while Ben Chorley is also suspended after he picked up a fifth booking of the season in the defeat to the Shrimpers.

Andrew Cave-Brown and Tamika Mkandawire will continue to deputise for Stephen Purches and Charlie Daniels at full-back.

Andros Townsend has returned to Tottenham following his loan spell although he has indicated a willingness to return.

Yeovil hope to welcome back fit-again on-loan Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and in-form striker Dean Bowditch.

England Under-21 keeper McCarthy, whose loan spell is due to end following the match, missed Monday's 3-1 defeat at Swindon through illness with Richard Martin deputising.

Bowditch, who is aiming to recover from a tight hamstring, was replaced by Jon Obika.

Sam Williams and Terrell Forbes are suspended while Stefan Stam (hamstring) faces a race to be fit after hobbling off in the 80th minute against Swindon.

Central midfielder Jean Paul-Kalala (knee) is also hoping to feature after he was replaced at half-time by Scott Murray in the same game.
