Justin Edinburgh will make at least one change to the team which won 3-1 at AFC Fylde last time out

After two weeks of training, the Leyton Orient players will be champing at the bit and desperate to be in the starting XI for today’s National League clash with Bromley, but manager Justin Edinburgh will have some decisions to make.

For the 3-1 win away to AFC Fylde on November 3, the O’s were missing Myles Judd and Sam Ling and then lost Charlie Lee after 10 minutes.

It resulted in Craig Clay playing out of position at right-back and Jobi McAnuff coming inside to partner Dale Gorman in the middle of the park.

Lee will miss this match, but his diagnosis was positive and the central midfielder will be back shortly after only suffering medial collateral ligament damage to his knee and not anterior cruciate ligament damage like in August 2017.

Dale Gorman should retain his spot in the team and will most likely make his full debut in E10 alongside Clay, who is set to be restored to his usual position in the middle.

Captain Jobi McAnuff will go back out wide which means James Brophy, who did well off the bench at Fylde after replacing Lee, will have to be content as a substitute again.

Edinburgh’s real selection headache comes at right-back with both Judd and Ling getting chances there before suspension and injury respectively prevented the pair from playing.

If both are fit and available, Judd should get the nod and will hope to help O’s claim a first league win over Bromley after Orient lost both encounters last season.
