Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin will miss fixtures with Accrington and Hartlepool

Leyton Orient will be without Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin for their League Two games over Easter.

Both have been called up for international duty with Jamaica and Antigua & Barbuda respectively.

The 34-year-old McAnuff, who scored the winner at Oxford United on Saturday, could represent the Reggae Boyz in two 2018 World Cup qualifying fixtures.

Orient’s number 11 will potentially play against Costa Rica in Kingston on March 25 with the return fixture taking place four days later.
