Leyton Orient are hoping top scorer Scott McGleish will be fit for the visit of Bristol Rovers.

The 10-goal striker missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at Carlisle after suffering a dead leg shortly after scoring the winner in their previous outing at Charlton.

Former Ipswich and Crystal Palace forward James Scowcroft started his first game since early December in McGleish's absence.

Manager Geraint Williams has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from, with no new injuries from the weekend.

On-loan winger Nicky Adams will keep his place with the Os unbeaten in the three games he has played in since arriving from Leicester earlier this month.

Fulham loanee Matthew Briggs will have to settle for a place on the bench again.

Bristol Rovers have been handed a triple boost ahead of the game.

Wayne Brown has joined the club on a month`s loan from Fulham with a view to extending it for a longer period, and the midfielder will go straight into the squad.

Goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen will be available for selection after extending his loan spell from Reading until the end of the season, while defender Byron Anthony has committed his future to the club by penning a new contract to keep him at the Memorial Stadium until the summer of 2012.

Darryl Duffy will play no part against the Os after moving to League One rivals Carlisle on a three-month loan, while Alex Kite and Joe White have extended their stays at Chippenham Town and Paulton Rovers respectively.

Boss Paul Trollope has no injury or suspension worries to contend with.
