Leyton Orient duo Dean Cox and Andrea Dossena are expected to have fitness tests today (Saturday) to see whether or not they are available for this afternoon’s clash with MK Dons.

Fabio Liverani’s team travel to Stadium mk sitting just outside of the bottom four, but with their relegation worries heightened following Tuesday’s home loss to Doncaster Rovers.

Cox has missed O’s last two matches, but is likely to undergo a late test to see if he has shaken off his groin issues.

Italian left-back Dossena, who was forced off during the midweek defeat at Brisbane Road with a hamstring injury, is also expected to have a fitness test, but Shane Lowry is likely to start against the Dons anyway.

Orient will definitely be without goalkeepers Gary Woods (back) and Adam Legzdins (shoulder), whilst key midfielder Romain Vincelot is also unavailable.

Kevin Lisbie suffered an injury during his month loan at League Two outfit Stevenage therefore he won’t play at Stadium mk.

But Bradley Pritchard, who hasn’t played since the stalemate with Barnsley on March 17, could be back in contention and Lloyd James, an unused substitute in O’s last two fixtures, may return to the starting team as Liverani’s targets the winning formula after going three matches without a victory.
