Brisbane Road number one is set to miss the O’s trip to Hartlepool United on November 15

Leyton Orient look set to be without number one goalkeeper Alex Cisak for the trip to Hartlepool United on November 15 after the Aussie received another international call-up.

It is the third time the 26-year-old has been included in the Socceroos 23-man squad during their FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

Cisak will most likely be on the bench as Australia play Kyrgyzstan on November 12 before travelling to Bangladesh for a clash on November 17.

The O’s head coach Ian Hendon used youngster Charlie Grainger the last time his first choice was unavailable and it seems he will get another opportunity again.

Grainger played 90 minutes in a development match against AFC Bournemouth yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon, but couldn’t prevent Orient losing 2-1 at their training ground.

If selected against Hartlepool next month, it will be his third appearance for the east Londoners first team.
