After sitting on the bench for Australia, Alex Cisak is set to return for Orient

Leyton Orient are only likely to make a couple of changes to the team that started against Exeter City when they take on Cambridge United this weekend.

Alex Cisak has been on international duty with Australia, but flew back on Wednesday and is in contention for the match against the U’s tomorrow (Saturday).

He will replace Charlie Grainger in the O’s goal and Frazer Shaw could come in for Alan Dunne too. Shaw started the first four league games of the campaign, but dropped to the bench against City with Orient head coach Ian Hendon citing tactical reasons behind the decision.

Hendon is expected to put Shaw back into the starting team and just make some changes to his substitute’s bench at Abbey Stadium.

Jack Payne, who joined the Brisbane Road outfit on-loan recently, is likely to be among the replacements again and may be joined by Jobi McAnuff.

The Jamaican international played in a reserve match against Stevenage this week and could be integrated back into the squad following a summer where he was expected to depart Orient.
