Captain Mathieu Baudry is available again after suspension

Leyton Orient’s new player-manager Kevin Nolan will have captain Mathieu Baudry available for today’s clash at Wycombe Wanderers.

It is the 33-year-old’s first match in charge of the Brisbane Road outfit and his French skipper is back after a three-match ban.

The former West Ham United captain has taken two training sessions with his new team and most onlookers will be keen to see what side he selects.

Nolan has been experimenting with his League Two squad in training by playing Jobi McAnuff in the centre of midfield and trying Scott Kashket wide left.

Nolan explained yesterday at his first press conference that he is still a couple of weeks away from being fully fit so it remains to be seen whether he will select himself against Wycombe.
