Dean Cox is set to return to the Leyton Orient starting team for the visit of Wycombe Wanderers today (Saturday).

The 28-year-old has enjoyed a stellar start to the campaign scoring twice and setting up five of the O’s goals in all competitions.

It was that form that enabled him to win the Sky Bet League Two player of the month award for August and his return will be a huge boost for Ian Hendon’s side.

He was left on the bench at Cambridge United last weekend because he wasn’t 100 per cent fit, but after resuming training again on Tuesday he will be expected to line up for the Brisbane Road club.

It leaves Hendon with a decision to make over who misses out in midfield between Sammy Moore, Bradley Pritchard, Jack Payne or Lloyd James.

But what does seem likely is that Paul McCallum and Jay Simpson will lead the line again with Ollie Palmer being restricted to an impact role on the substitutes bench.
