Leyton Orient can include Terrell Forbes in their squad to face Colchester.

The defender completed a one-match ban in the 5-0 defeat at Brighton on New Year`s Day and is available for selection.

Midfielder and club captain Stephen Dawson offered no excuses for the rout, adding: "We let everyone down."

Defender Andrew Whing was sidelined for the trip to the Withdean as he is on-loan from the Seagulls but is set to return to first-team action against the U's.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones was at fault for one of the goals, palming a cross from Chris Wood into his own net, but he should continue between the sticks.

Striker Alex Revell has eight league goals this season and will look to get his name on the scoresheet as Orient aim to bounce back from the heavy loss.

David Perkins is suspended for Colchester after he was sent off in the 3-3 draw with Charlton.

Midfielder Perkins was dismissed for handling a Paul Benson header on the goal-line.

Right-back Brian Wilson is out for up to eight weeks after suffering ankle ligament damage in training.

Nigerian defender Magnus Okuonghae is also sidelined with an ankle injury and will play no part against the Os.

Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole and defender Morten Knudsen are out of action until late January with knee injuries, but striker Steven Gillespie returned to the bench after a thigh injury and is pushing for a start.

Midfielder Simon Hackney (back) was not deemed fit enough to feature against Charlton but may be among the substitutes at Brisbane Road.
