The O’s will hope to have at least one experienced defender back after injury

Leyton Orient manager Danny Webb may have experienced duo Nicky Hunt and Callum Kennedy back for the trip to Crawley Town this afternoon.

The pair missed the 4-1 loss to League Two leaders Doncaster Rovers last weekend with knee and groin injuries respectively.

Kennedy has a decent chance of returning at left-back while O’s club captain Hunt is pushing to play some part in West Sussex.

Alex Cisak is likely to continue in goal after looking assured during his first start since January 28 last weekend.
