Tristan Abrahams is set to be handed his full debut for Leyton Orient this afternoon in their crucial League Two match with Hartlepool United.

Only a win will do for O’s who are 10 points behind the Monkey Hangers prior to the game today.

Abrahams introduction at Kenilworth Road on Good Friday helped change the match for Orient.

The 18-year-old bullied the Luton back line and scored his first professional goal to help Orient draw 2-2.

Omer Riza may have Paul McCallum available again, although O’s top goalscorer may only be risked from the bench.

It is likely to be another inexperienced team for Orient, but they showed plenty of heart and character on Friday.

Hartlepool will be feeling the pressure themselves today with Newport County just one point behind them.

The Monkey Hangers haven’t won since March 14, but have drawn their last two games to stay above the bottom two.
