Leyton Orient head coach Ian Hendon is expected to have new loan signing John Marquis on the substitute’s bench for today’s match at Crawley Town.

The 23-year-old’s move to the O’s was confirmed yesterday (Friday) from Millwall on a 93-day deal, which does include a recall option inside the first 28 days.

He has only made two starts for the Lions this year, however, and his last appearance for them was on September 26, which was only for the final 14 minutes of their match with Rochdale.

Therefore it is expected Jay Simpson and Ollie Palmer will lead the line at Broadfield Stadium with Marquis set for a possible impact role.

Adam Chicksen, on-loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, should remain at left-back and Sammy Moore is expected to be fit to face the Red Devils in League Two.

He suffered a knee injury against Notts County last Saturday, but after scoring his first two goals for the club is likely to make the starting team again.

Alex Cisak should be fine to take up his place in goal for the O’s despite being away with the Australian national team during the week on international duty.
