Sean Thornton returns to the Leyton Orient squad for the visit of leaders Norwich.

The midfielder completed a two-match ban for picking up 10 bookings as Orient drew 0-0 with Exeter on Saturday.

Striker Jonathan Tehoue has been ruled out with a hamstring injury which could end his season.

Veteran frontman Scott McGleish returned from a foot injury to play the full 90 minutes at the weekend and he should be fine to continue.

Left-back Charlie Daniels shook off a calf injury to come on as a late substitute and he will push to reclaim his starting berth.

Skipper Stephen Purches also returned after a calf problem and will keep his place at right-back.

Leaders Norwich will have to cope without leading scorer Grant Holt.

Captain Holt, who has scored 30 goals this season, must serve a two-match suspension after picking up his 10th booking of the season in Saturday's 1-1 draw with MK Dons.

Oli Johnson and on-loan striker Stephen Elliott will be vying to replace him in the starting line-up as the Canaries look to extend their eight-point lead at the top of League One.

Goalkeeper Fraser Forster is available after completing a two-game ban, while manager Paul Lambert will continue to assess Wes Hoolahan (thigh).

The Irishman will be given as much time as possible to prove his fitness before Lambert makes a decision over his availability.

Luke Daley (thigh) and Jens Berthel Askou (foot) remain sidelined.
