O’s boss has fitness concerns for the visit of the Exiles

Leyton Orient player-manager Kevin Nolan has a few injury problems to contend with ahead of facing Newport County this evening.

It will be his first home match since taking charge of the east Londoners last Thursday.

Experienced defender Alan Dunne, who wasn’t included in the squad at Wycombe Wanderers last weekend, is unavailable for the match with a groin problem.

Meanwhile QPR youngster Cole Kpekawa is a doubt due to a foot injury and that would leave the O’s with little defensive options on the bench.

It could result in either Myles Judd or Aron Pollock being included among the substitutes for the visit of the Exiles.

Nolan is likely to keep the same side that beat Wycombe on Saturday with new midfielder Nigel Atangana impressive alongside Jack Payne.

Atangana was forced off against the Chairboys, but it was only cramp so he should be fine to start this evening.

Sammy Moore failed to make the squad last weekend so he will aim to be included among the replacements this time.

Orient will be without midfielder Lloyd James, who continues to work his way back from an achilles problem.

While Dean Cox and Paul McCallum remain long term absentees as they come back from knee ligament injuries.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
