Fabio Liverani expected to make more changes

Leyton Orient manager Fabio Liverani is expected to make changes to his team ahead of today’s vital clash with relegation rivals Crewe Alexandra.

O’s shipped three goals on Easter Monday against Gillingham, but showed great character to respond and salvage a 3-3 draw.

But captain Nathan Clarke is expected to return in place of Andrea Dossena.

Darius Henderson will also be pushing for a start after his impact from the substitutes bench on Monday.

His goal got Orient back in the game and he assisted Josh Wright’s equaliser, and David Mooney could make way for him.

Liverani won’t have goalkeeper Adam Legzdins (shoulder) and Romain Vincelot (knee) available – the pair are out for the foreseeable future.

Gary Sawyer (groin/fibula) isn’t in contention either, whilst Marvin Bartley missed the draw with Gillingham and might not be involved today.

Therefore Wright and Lloyd James are expected to be selected in central midfield at Gresty Road as O’s look to get a third win in four matches.
