League Two leaders without number one goalkeeper Alex Cisak for cup tie

Leyton Orient will make changes for their Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash at Luton Town tonight, but only a maximum of five due to the rules of the competition.

Two of them may be enforced on head coach Ian Hendon because goalkeeper Alex Cisak is definitely unavailable after flying out to join the Australian national team after keeping a clean sheet against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Captain Mathieu Baudry is also unlikely to play against the Hatters after coming off at half time against Rovers because he was struggling with an ankle injury.

Young goalkeeper Charlie Grainger is expected to replace Cisak and Alan Dunne may take Baudry’s position, but Hendon doesn’t want the former experienced Millwall man to play the full 90 minutes at Luton.

Ollie Palmer and Scott Kashket will most likely play up front with Paul McCallum and Jay Simpson dropping to the bench while Blair Turgott should feature from the off.

New signing Jack Payne, on loan from Peterborough United, will hope to be involved at Kenilworth Road. If Orient and Luton can’t be separated in 90 minutes, the match will go straight to penalties.
