The O’s will be without Joe Widdowson, Jamie Sendles-White and possibly Charlie Grainger for the clash at the Shay

Justin Edinburgh will be without a handful of Leyton Orient players for the trip to Halifax Town later today.

The O’s defeated Bognor Regis Town after extra-time in the FA Trophy last Saturday, but will make at least one change to the team which won at Nyewood Lane.

Joe Widdowson was sent off by the seaside and will now miss the next two-games because it is his second red of the campaign, so Myles Judd is likely to slot in at left-back – a role he has performed well in the past.

Edinburgh was without Alex Lawless, James Dayton and Josh Coulson last weekend, but all three are likely to return and start at the Shay.

Bondz N’Gala and George Elokobi partnered each other at the heart of O’s defence at Bognor, but one of them is set to drop out of the starting XI and Saturday’s game is almost certain to be N’Gala last of his loan spell from Dagenham & Redbridge.

One player looking to impress will be Cheltenham Town loanee Dan Holman with the forward yet to make an appearance since joining at the start of this window.

The ex-Woking striker was an unused substitute against Boreham Wood on January 6 and was ineligible last weekend due to his previous involvement in the FA Trophy with Wood.

Holman may have to be restricted to a cameo role off the bench, but will aim to show the travelling Orient support what he can do.

Jamie Sendles-White is likely to be still in London after picking up an ankle injury last week while goalkeeper Sam Sargeant is set to be on the bench.

Sargeant was recalled from his loan spell at Margate on Thursday and may well be among the replacements after Charlie Grainger recently suffered an injury in training.
