Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade is unlikely to make changes for the crucial clash with Wycombe.

Midfielder John Spicer is expected to stay in the starting line-up after extending his loan spell from Doncaster for the final two matches of the season.

Striker James Scowcroft could be added to the bench if he can shake off a hamstring problem.

Fellow frontman Jonathan Tehoue will not feature again this term due to a hamstring injury of his own.

Skipper Stephen Purches is set to start on the bench again with Aston Villa loanee Eric Lichaj keeping his place at right-back.

Last week's defeat at Millwall left Orient just three points above the relegation zone.

Striker Alex Revell will play his final game of the season as Wycombe look to continue their fight against relegation.

Revell has belatedly hit form, scoring five goals in his last three games, but will play the last game of his current loan spell from Southend.

He will join Gary Waddock`s men on a permanent deal in the summer and will hope to still be a League One player. They are five points adrift of safety with two games left so even a win could not be enough to save them from the drop.

Alan Bennett is back in contention after the on-loan Brentford defender recovered from injury faster than expected while Julian Kelly could return at right-back after a hamstring problem.

Captain Adam Hinshelwood is sidelined with a knee injury and Leon Johnson (knee) and Ian Westlake (ankle) remain a few weeks away from a return.
