After starting with the same back four for the first nine games of the season, O’s will make a fourth consecutive change to their defence today
Leyton Orient will be without first-choice centre backs George Elokobi and Josh Coulson for the visit of AFC Fylde today and for the foreseeable future.
The O’s revealed on Thursday that the Cambridge United loanee would miss the next two months after suffering a tear in his groin.
Coulson now joins Elokobi on the sidelines with the popular defending having surgery this week on a hamstring problem, which will keep him out for the rest of 2017.
Steve Davis and Martin Ling moved quickly to fill the void by bringing in Mark Ellis from Carlisle United on a two-month loan.
Ellis will now make his debut later this afternoon and line up alongside Jamie Sendles-White at the heart of Orient’s back four.
After making an impact off the bench at Aldershot Town, Rommy Boco will be hoping to start against Fylde.
James Brophy may drop out of the starting XI as a result and be among the substitutes at Brisbane Road.
Davis will hope to have Matt Harrold available after a recent calf problem and could also see David Mooney return following his shoulder injury.
Orient, after a four-match winless run, will be desperate to firmly get back on track today by beating struggling Fylde.
