Liam Kelly a major doubt to feature against Hatters and it leaves Alberto Cavasin with problem in centre of midfield

Leyton Orient look set to be without vice-captain Liam Kelly for the visit of Luton Town today (Saturday) in League Two.

The summer signing was stretchered off after just five minutes of last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Portsmouth.

It is understood the former Oldham Athletic skipper pulled his hamstring and might not be back to face the Hatters.

Nigel Atangana is still struggling with a groin/hip flexor problem and remains a doubt to start this afternoon.
