The O’s could remain unchanged for the seventh consecutive match

Craig Clay should be fit to face Barnet this afternoon despite coming off during Leyton Orient’s 1-1 draw at Halifax Town last weekend.

The midfielder was replaced by Matt Harrold in the 76th minute at the Shay and could be seen limping along the touchline to join in with the celebrations after James Alabi netted a last-gasp equaliser in Yorkshire.

Clay had an ice pack on his left boot, but is expected to line up alongside Charlie Lee in the centre of midfield this afternoon.

Justin Edinburgh could keep faith with the same starting XI who have played the last six games in the National League.

Although both Alabi and Matt Harrold have come off the bench to score in recent weeks, Macauley Bonne and Josh Koroma should again get the nod up front.

On the bench, Sam Ling and James Brophy are pushing for returns, but this match may come too soon for both.

Dale Gorman is expected to be included in the 16-man matchday squad with Alex Lawless the obvious replacement to drop out, while Crystal Palace loanee Levi Lumeka, a winger, may again fail to be named amongst the substitutes.
