Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade has an injury doubt over Alex Revell for the home clash with Oldham.

The former Brighton and Southend striker limped out of Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Walsall in the 50th minute and will undergo a late fitness test.

Jonathan Tehoue, who scored just five minutes after replacing Revell against the Saddlers, is on standby to deputise should Revell fail to recover in time.

Midfielder Jimmy Smith remains a major doubt with the hamstring problem that has kept him out of the last three games, while defender Ben Chorley could also miss out again with an ongoing knee problem.

Elliot Omozusi will continue to deputise for the latter as the Os look to extend their 12-game unbeaten run.

Oldham boss Paul Dickov will assess the fitness of midfielder Dean Furman.

Furman had missed two matches through suspension and was due back in midweek for the home clash against Sheffield Wednesday before being ruled out through illness.

He only has a slight chance of returning at Orient and the virus that has swept through the club in recent weeks is also affecting striker Reuben Reid.

He has been feeling unwell and may also be missing as the Latics bid to reignite their faltering play-off bid.

Dickov`s men have not won in eight games, although they ended a six-match goal drought in midweek with Filipe Morais' strike against Wednesday, who won the match 3-2.
