Danny Webb set to have several players available after illness and injury

Leyton Orient boss Danny Webb should have Paul McCallum available for selection again for the visit of Grimsby Town today in League Two.

The forward missed last Saturday’s 4-0 win over Newport County as a precaution due to his ongoing knee problems.

Newport’s Rodney Parade pitch was in a poor condition and wouldn’t have been good for McCallum’s knee.

But the 23-year-old will be back this afternoon and leaves Webb with a decision to make over his starting XI.

Every Orient player impressed last weekend in South Wales and it remains to be seen whether McCallum will start or not.

Webb will be without Gavin Massey and Liam Kelly again due to suspension, but both are set to return shortly.
