Blair Turgott set to earn recall to starting team for visit of the Glovers

Leyton Orient boss Ian Hendon threatened he would make some changes after the 3-0 defeat to Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night and it is believed Blair Turgott and John Marquis could be recalled to the side.

The pair started at Mansfield Town last weekend, but both had to be content with spots on the bench against the Iron.

Hendon watched his team miss a hatful of opportunities at Glanford Park and because of that Ollie Palmer could be among the replacements.

The O’s may pick to go with a 4-4-2 formation against Yeovil Town so Turgott may be preferred to Bradley Pritchard on the right.

Although Cole Kpekawa is available again it is expected he will stay on the bench with the Orient back four unchanged.

Sammy Moore is still unavailable with a knee injury, but is ahead of schedule so could be set to return in the coming weeks.

Paul McCallum and Dean Cox, however, remain out for the foreseeable future after suffering cruciate ligament damage to the knee earlier this season.
