League One preview: Sheffield United v Leyton Orient

The 26-year-old Frenchman hobbled off during the first half of Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with a tight hamstring.

And the former Bournemouth man is struggling to keep his place in the side, with Shane Lowry ready to fill the breach if necessary.

“He had a bit of a tight hamstring and hopefully we got him off in time so that he’s not done anything serious,” said caretaker boss Kevin Nugent

Midfielder Jack Price, brought in on loan from Championship outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers, could make his O’s debut.

The 21-year-old played 30 games for Wolves on their way to winning League One last term, and had just returned from a one-month spell at League One rivals Yeovil Town.

And Nugent hopes he can have an instant impact and make up for Orient losing Lloyd James to a broken leg.

“He’s a good footballer and another midfielder for us,” he added. “He likes to get on the ball and dictate play and he played 30 games for Wolves last season and they obviously won the league.

“He is a really good lad and he comes highly recommended. I have seen him a few times and it’s good to have him on board.”

Striker David Mooney (ankle) remains a doubt, while Kevin Lisbie (shoulder), Lloyd James (broken leg) and goalkeeper Adam Legzdins (finger) are all ruled out.

Sheffield United could include former O’s loanee Jamal Campbell-Ryce in their side after he made a scoring return for the Blades in Tuesday’s 2-1 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Hartlepool United.

Michael Higdon, the scorer of the only goal in the win over the O’s in the Capital One Cup on September 23, is ruled out after his sending off in the 3-2 defeat at Chesterfield last Saturday.

Florent Cuvelier (knee) is the only other definite absentee for the Bramall Lane side, who could also give Jose Baxter a start after he netted alongside Campbell-Ryce in midweek.
