Peterborough United loanee might return for trip to York

Leyton Orient are sweating on the fitness of defender Shaun Brisley ahead of the trip to York City (today).

The Peterborough loanee missed the 2-0 loss to Hartlepool United on Bank Holiday Monday with a dead leg.

He suffered that during the defeat at Accrington Stanley on Good Friday, but Kevin Nolan said he was hopeful of having the 25-year-old available for the clash at Bootham Crescent.

Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin should be in the match day squad for the vital League Two fixture.
