Notts County Vs Leyton Orient, Sat 18 Sep 2010

Next Story

Craig Short is expected to keep faith with an unchanged side for the third successive game when Notts County host Leyton Orient.

The Magpies manager named the same line-up for last weekend`s narrow 1-0 defeat at Charlton as the one which had convincingly seen off Yeovil 4-0 seven days earlier.

And with no new injury or suspension problems, Short is likely to send the same team out against an Orient side who have struggled so far this term and are yet to win away from home.

The only change could come in the form of Alan Judge who is included in the squad for the first time this season. The midfielder signed a loan deal from Blackburn last month before suffering a groin injury while on international duty, resulting in his subsequent treatment at Ewood Park.

Luke Rodgers is back in training after his pre-season ankle operation but the game comes too soon for him to be involved.

Leyton Orient have problems at left-back for the trip.

Charlie Daniels will be handed a late fitness check on the hamstring injury which has sidelined him recently.

Boss Russell Slade last week brought in Andrew Frampton on loan from Millwall as cover for Daniels, but he lasted just 45 minutes on his debut before suffering an ankle injury which will keep him out for three weeks.

If Daniels misses out again, Elliot Omozusi will switch flanks to left-back with midfielder Jimmy Smith filling in on the right.

French striker Jonathan Tehoue is still on the sidelines with an ankle problem so recent signing James Walker should figure again after making his debut as a substitute on Saturday.
