Justin Edinburgh will hope to have Craig Clay available today after he was forced off on Tuesday due to injury

Leyton Orient will be waiting on the fitness of Craig Clay for the trip to Gateshead later this afternoon.

The O’s and Heed do battle in a 12.30pm kick-off at the International Stadium for the last National League match of the regular season.

Orient go into the contest off the back of a 1-0 defeat at home to Maidenhead United on Tuesday – a game where Clay was forced off with a tight groin.

His injury saw first-team captain Charlie Lee play 45 minutes as he continued his comeback from anterior cruciate ligament damage to his knee in August.

Given Lee is slowly building up his fitness, Justin Edinburgh will hope to have Clay fit to start at Gateshead.

Elsewhere, he may also have left-back Joe Widdowson available after he also suffered a tight groin recently.

Widdowson picked up the injury during the 1-0 loss at Hartlepool United on April 17, but should be fit enough to face the Heed if needed.

But Orient are almost definitely going to be without the likes of George Elokobi (thigh), Alex Lawless (groin), Dan Holman (broken metatarsal), Josh Coulson (broken metatarsal), James Dayton (hamstring) and Matt Harrold (hamstring).
