Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin will miss fixtures with Accrington and Hartlepool
Leyton Orient will be without Jobi McAnuff and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin for their League Two games over Easter.
Both have been called up for international duty with Jamaica and Antigua & Barbuda respectively.
The 34-year-old McAnuff, who scored the winner at Oxford United on Saturday, could represent the Reggae Boyz in two 2018 World Cup qualifying fixtures.
Orient’s number 11 will potentially play against Costa Rica in Kingston on March 25 with the return fixture taking place four days later.
It means he won’t be available for O’s trip to Accrington Stanley on Good Friday or the home clash with Hartlepool United on Easter Monday.
Jahraldo-Martin, meanwhile, is set to take part in the 2016 Caribbean Cup qualifiers for his country.
Antigua & Barbuda face Aruba on March 23 before playing St Kitts & Nevis on March 29 – ruling him out of action for Kevin Nolan’s side.
While it was a positive last week when goalkeeper Alex Cisak wasn’t called up for international duty with Australia.
This news means Orient will be without two key men for the clashes over Easter, but it does offer an opportunity to Blair Turgott.
He has only made one appearance under Nolan, during the 3-1 loss to Cambridge United on January 30.
