Orient won't have captain Mathieu Baudry available until April 9

Mathieu Baudry will serve the first of his four game suspension today when Leyton Orient host Morecambe in League Two.

The O’s captain received a straight red card during the 1-0 win at Oxford United last weekend.

Kevin Nolan’s men appealed against the decision, but the FA rejected it and now the French defender won’t return until April 9.

Orient have numerous different options that they can pick to try and fill the void left by Baudry.

Nicky Hunt can move inside to the centre of defence and Sean Clohessy can slot in at right-back.

Alternatively Hunt can remain as full back and either Connor Essam or new loan signing Peter Ramage can go alongside Shaun Brisley at the back.

It is expected that Coventry City’s Ramage will be given a start at Brisbane Road after joining on a 28-day deal this week.

Sammy Moore missed out through illness last weekend, but should be available again this afternoon while Lloyd James could return to the match day squad.

The former Southampton midfielder hasn’t played since the 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town on December 19.

But he came through Tuesday’s ‘Final Third’ Development League match with Cambridge United without any problems and could be on the bench.
