Leyton Orient hope to have on loan midfielder Ryan Hedges back in their matchday squad for the crunch League One clash with bottom club Yeovil this weekend.

Hedges missed last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Peterborough with a thigh strain, having netted his first goal for O’s in their 2-0 win at Walsall and then impressed in the 3-1 loss to leaders Bristol City.

But the 19-year-old, on loan at Brisbane Road from Premier League outfit Swansea, was back in training on Thursday and expected to take part in a full session today ahead of the clash with the Glovers.

Australian defender Shane Lowry is set to miss out again with his ankle injury, but boss Fabio Liverani has every other member of his squad available for selection, apart from long-term injury victims Adam Legzdins (shoulder) and Romain Vincelot.
