Team News: Leyton Orient v Crewe Alexandra
16:00 21 November 2014
O’s duo coubtful for Railwaymen clash.
Leyton Orient boss Mauro Milanese has decisions to make in midfield after the return of Wolves loanee Jack Price.
The 21-year-old initially joined on a three-month loan deal at the start of October, but hobbled off with an ankle injury in the 2-0 win at Doncaster Rovers on October 21.
However, after receiving treatment for the injury at the Championship club, the midfielder has re-joined the O’s to complete the remainder of his loan spell.
And having received the boost of Romain Vincelot’s earlier than expected return last week at Gillingham, Milanese now has options in midfield.
“Some players are back and available,” said Milanese.
“I don’t know about their fitness because Vincelot was back for the first game and Price is just back from Wolves, but they look good. We also have Wright so for this game we will have a bit of choice.”
Striker David Mooney also returned last week, coming off the bench in the 3-2 defeat in Kent and will look to continue his recovery from an ankle injury.
Shane Lowry and Jay Simpson both went off with injury last weekend and the pair are both doubtful for tomorrow’s match.
The O’s will assess the fitness of Jobi McAnuff after the midfielder returned from international duty with Jamaica on Thursday.
But Kevin Lisbie (shoulder), Darius Henderson (foot) and Lloyd James (broken leg) are still unavailable.
Orient goalkeeper Adam Legzdins could line-up against his former side, where he played just eight games in a two-year spell.
For Crewe, Marcus Haber may miss out having been on international duty with Canada.
Former O’s loanee Jamie Ness is in contention for the Railwaymen after making a successful return in the 2-0 loss to Sheffield United on Tuesday.
