Frazer Shaw to return to starting team for massive FA Cup second round replay tonight

Leyton Orient defender Frazer Shaw will slot back in at left-back this evening for the second round FA Cup replay against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

The 20-year-old was left on the substitutes bench during the 1-1 draw at Mansfield Town on Saturday in League Two.

Head coach Ian Hendon confirmed it was because the former West Ham United youngsters had a slight niggle.

Cole Kpekawa replaced him, but the QPR loanee isn’t available for tonight’s match with the Iron due to the terms of his loan.
