Tom Parkes returns following his three-match ban

Leyton Orient boss Omer Riza should have a few more options available for the trip to Crewe Alexandra this afternoon.

The O’s know they could officially be relegated from the Football League if they fail to win.

But Orient will have Tom Parkes available again following his three-match ban after his red card on April 1.

The ex-Bristol Rovers skipper was shown a straight red card at home to Wycombe Wanderers, but could return at Gresty Road.

Nicky Hunt and Callum Kennedy took part in training this week and therefore could be available today.

Paul McCallum made his return on Monday and played the final 20 minutes during the 2-1 win over Hartlepool United.

McCallum is likely to have another cameo role this afternoon with Riza set to keep faith with Victor Adeboyejo and Tristan Abrahams.

Orient will face former striker Chris Dagnall, but Jordan Bowery is ineligible to face his parent club.
