Jean-Yves M’voto back fit again after missing out at Stevenage with groin problem

Leyton Orient are without numerous key personnel for the visit of Exeter City today (Saturday) in League Two.

Captain Mathieu Baudry serves the last of his three-match suspension and therefore has to watch from the sidelines again at Brisbane Road.

Sammy Moore is close to returning to full fitness, but hasn’t been able to train too much this week so is only likely to feature off the bench for the O’s this afternoon.

Ian Hendon’s men couldn’t train at their Chigwell base for the first three days of the week, but returned there on Thursday.

Lloyd James wasn’t involved, though, and he is expected to miss the rest of the month with an achilles problem.

Jean-Yves M’voto missed out at Stevenage on January 2 with a groin problem, but is likely to come back into the Orient defence.
