Aron Pollock expected to start again after impressive debut last weekend
Aron Pollock is expected to remain at the heart of the Leyton Orient defence this afternoon for the clash with Yeovil Town.
Fresh from signing a two-year professional contract with the club yesterday, the 18-year-old is set to partner Shaun Brisley at the back again.
Sandro Semedo made his full debut for the O’s in their 1-0 win against Mansfield Town last weekend and he should start on the left-wing today.
Nigel Atangana and Armand Gnanduillet look set to miss out at Huish Park, though, as both are struggling with injuries.
You may also want to watch:
Atangana isn’t back to fully fitness after a groin problem while Gnanduillet hurt his hamstring in training on Thursday and isn’t likely to feature against the Glovers.
Sargeant, like Pollock, signed a two-year professional deal with Orient on Friday and will again be involved in the squad and may even make his debut at Yeovil.

Freddy Moncur was another to sign a professional contract this week, he will be staying at Brisbane Road until the end of next season, and could play some part later this afternoon after working his way back from injury recently.
The likes of Calaum Jahraldo-Martin, Jerome Binnom-Williams and David Gregory won’t feature for the O’s and the east Londoners supporters making the trip to Huish Park will hope to see Josh Koroma given more minutes to impress.
A final-day victory for Orient could see them finish the campaign in eighth position, but as caretaker Andy Hessenthaler admitted last Saturday, it will still represent a disappointing season.
But if the youngsters on show can impress as much as they did against Mansfield, it will give the away fans some hope ahead of next year.
