Tom Taiwo faces a late fitness test ahead of Carlisle`s clash with Leyton Orient.

The midfielder was forced off in the closing stages of the Cumbrians` 3-2 win at Rochdale on Saturday after coming off worst in a challenge on Joe Thompson.

Rory Loy came on to replace him for the last few minutes and will be on standby.

If Taiwo fails to make the game, Carlisle boss Greg Abbott will have to make the first change to his starting line-up for four matches.

The Cumbrians have won their last two games and are unbeaten in three going into the clash.

Orient boss Russell Slade could be without striker Scott McGleish.

McGleish sustained an injury and was replaced by Jonathan Tehoue after just 31 minutes of the 2-1 home win over Peterborough on Good Friday.

The frontman will be assessed but skipper Stephen Dawson was passed fit for the victory over Posh after recovering from a back injury.

Defender Ben Chorley remains a doubt with the thigh injury which has sidelined him since last month, midfielder Jimmy Smith could miss out again with a knee problem and winger Paul-Jose Mpoku is struggling with an ankle knock.

Striker Alex Revell will miss the clash and is unlikely to play again this season due to knee ligament damage.
