Leyton Orient Vs Swindon Town, Sat 27 Feb 2010

Published Add your comment

Leyton Orient boss Geraint Williams has no new injury concerns ahead of his side's clash with promotion-chasing Swindon.

The Os were held to a 1-1 draw by Gillingham on Tuesday night and Williams is expected to make few changes to his starting line-up.

On-loan Blackburn winger Aaron Doran made his debut against the Gills and is likely to keep his place in the side after turning in an impressive display.

Striker Scott McGleish was relegated to the bench in midweek but came on in the second-half to replace Jonathan Tehoue and will be hoping for a start this time around.

The Os are only five points above the relegation zone following a run of four matches without a win.

Swindon's Danny Ward faces a late fitness test, but Kevin Amankwaah will miss out.

Ward came off after just 25 minutes of the 4-1 win over Stockport nursing an ankle injury but will be given as long as possible to recover and line up at Brisbane Road. On-loan Portsmouth winger Matt Ritchie is on hand to again step in if required.

Amankwaah, however, will definitely not feature having been forced off at half-time on Tuesday with a hamstring injury, leaving Scott Cuthbert, Nathan Thompson and Jonathan Douglas as the three main contenders to step in at right-back.

Should manager Danny Wilson opt to move Douglas from midfield, then Craig Easton will hope to get the nod in the middle of the park against his former employers.

Captain Gordon Greer was on the bench in midweek having been rested after a slight ankle problem but he should return against the Os.
