Jean-Yves M’voto back fit again after missing out at Stevenage with groin problem

Leyton Orient are without numerous key personnel for the visit of Exeter City today (Saturday) in League Two.

Captain Mathieu Baudry serves the last of his three-match suspension and therefore has to watch from the sidelines again at Brisbane Road.

Sammy Moore is close to returning to full fitness, but hasn’t been able to train too much this week so is only likely to feature off the bench for the O’s this afternoon.

Ian Hendon’s men couldn’t train at their Chigwell base for the first three days of the week, but returned there on Thursday.

Lloyd James wasn’t involved, though, and he is expected to miss the rest of the month with an achilles problem.

Jean-Yves M’voto missed out at Stevenage on January 2 with a groin problem, but is likely to come back into the Orient defence.

The 27-year-old played for the east Londoners in a development match against Luton Town recently so is fully fit again.

He signed a two-month deal with the O’s in November and today is officially his last match, but Hendon has already revealed the club can extend the defenders contract until the end of the season if they want.

Calaum Jahraldo-Martin, on-loan from Hull City, is set to make his home debut this afternoon at Brisbane Road after impressing on his debut against Boro.

Orient are without John Marquis, however, after the forward returned to parent club Millwall last weekend.

Meanwhile Harry Lee has moved to Welling United on a permanent deal following an impressive loan spell.
