Leyton Orient Vs Preston North End, Sat 1 Oct 2011

Published Add your comment

Leyton Orient's injury problems are beginning to clear up ahead of the visit of Preston.

Kevin Lisbie returned from a thigh injury as a substitute and scored in the 2-2 draw at Huddersfield last week, and fellow striker Jamie Cureton is now available after missing six matches with a groin problem.

The Os can also welcome back defender Scott Cuthbert after a three-match ban, and midfielder Tom Clarke, who was ineligible against parent club Huddersfield last week.

But full-back Charlie Daniels and midfielder Jimmy Smith are still struggling with thigh problems and are unlikely to play.

Goalkeepers Ben Alnwick (groin), Jamie Jones and David Button (both shoulder) are still sidelined along with striker Jonathan Tehoue (broken wrist).

Paul Parry will return to Preston's squad as they aim to record a eighth consecutive league win.

The left-back missed Tuesday's thrilling 4-3 win over Wycombe after picking up two yellow cards in the victory over Tranmere.

Steven Smith started in Parry's absence in what was Phil Brown's only change from the side which he fielded against Rovers.

Goalkeeper Iain Turner (foot) could return to the bench but may be able to dislodge young stopper Andreas Arestidou in the starting XI.

Brown is unlikely to usher David Gray back into a starting berth as he continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg.

The defender was among the substitutes on Tuesday after completing 14 minutes against Tranmere, his first competitive action since March.
