Leyton Orient Vs Carlisle United, Sat 27 Aug 2011


David Button could make his Leyton Orient debut against Carlisle this weekend.

The goalkeeper has been drafted in on loan from Tottenham as competition for Lee Butcher with regular number one Jamie Jones out long-term with a shoulder injury.

Boss Russell Slade must decide whether to stick with Butcher, who let in five against Brentford last weekend, or start with Button.

French striker Jonathan Tehoue is available after a three-match ban and will probably be on the bench, but midfielder Leon McSweeney is still on the sidelines with the knee injury he suffered on his debut against Walsall.

The Os are currently bottom of the table without a point to their name after four straight defeats.

Carlisle's new signing Lee Miller will go straight into the squad.

The 28-year-old signed a two-year deal at Brunton Park this week and will give manager Greg Abbott a welcome selection dilemma at Brisbane Road.

Craig Curran started in attack alongside Francois Zoko in last week's home win over Bournemouth and Abbott must decide whether to include Miller on the substitutes' bench or throw him straight into his line-up.

Winger Andy Welsh is pushing for his first start since arriving from Yeovil in the summer, while on-loan Newcastle defender James Tavernier will continue at right-back in the absence of long-term injury victim Frank Simek (torn thigh muscle).

Abbott has no new injury or suspension concerns as the Cumbrians look to clinch their second away win of the season.
