Kevin Nolan could be missing two key players for Hatters clash

Leyton Orient could be without Armand Gnanduillet and Jobi McAnuff for the visit of Luton Town today.

Kevin Nolan hasn’t been able to select the Jamaican international since the 1-0 win at Notts County on February 20.

Gnanduillet failed to feature at Carlisle United on Tuesday after netting a brace against Crawley Town last weekend.

Ollie Palmer took his opportunity at Brunton Park, scoring and assisting Jay Simpson and may start this afternoon.

Sean Clohessy and Jack Payne went included from the off against the Cumbrians, but may drop to the bench today.

Hull City loanee Calaum Jahraldo-Martin has caught the eye of late and may be given the nod on the right with Sammy Moore on the left again.

Lloyd James has been working his way back to fitness recently and is close to being included in the match day squad.

The former Southampton youngster hasn’t played for Orient since the draw with Yeovil Town on December 19 due to an achilles problem.

It is another crucial match in League Two with Nolan’s men seventh in the standings on 53 points.

A win against the Hatters could see them rise to fifth, but a defeat would almost certainly see them drop out of the play-off positions.
