Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade insists Gary Sawyer and Lloyd James are making ‘good progress’ on their return to first-team action.
Sawyer and James both took part in training on Thursday following tendonitis and thigh injuries respectively, but whether the duo could make a return at Scunthorpe remains to be seen.
“Gary and Lloyd are making good progress,” said Slade. “It’s the first full session for Lloyd who had half a session before that and Gary that’s probably about his third session back so we are pleased with that.
“There are a few that didn’t train on Thursday as a result of Tuesday’s exertions but we’ll have a clearer picture soon.
“Hopefully we won’t have too many doubts but there are one or two niggly things which need to clear up in the next 24 hours.”
