O’s look for win to move off bottom of the League One table.
Leyton Orient will look for their first win of 2015 when they host Notts County at Brisbane Road tonight.
O’s game last weekend at Rochdale was called off because of a frozen Spotland pitch, and results elsewhere saw them drop to the bottom of the League One table.
Goalkeeper Alex Cisak is set to make his debut following his loan move from Premier League side Burnley, while Marvin Bartley and Jobi McAnuff could return to the matchday squad after both spending lengthy spells out injured, though Neal Eardley has returned to Birmingham City after the Blues decided to cut short his loan spell with the O’s.
Shaun Derry’s Notts County side have failed to win any of their last three matches going into the game and the two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane earlier in the season as Chris Dagnall equalised from the penalty spot after Zeli Ismail’s 25th minute spot kick had put the hosts in front.
Last time at Brisbane Road, the O’s picked up a memorable 5-1 win over the Magpies in September 2013, with a double from Kevin Lisbie, and one apiece for Dean Cox, Shaun Batt and former loanee Jayden Stockley.
