The O’s will be without Matt Harrold for the visit of the struggling Bluebirds

Leyton Orient will be without Matt Harrold for today’s clash with Barrow and the big forward is set to miss the rest of the season through injury.

The ex-Crawley Town striker suffered a hamstring problem during the 3-0 win at home to Woking on March 24 and the initial diagnosis means the 33-year-old is not likely to play again during the current campaign.

O’s boss Justin Edinburgh has plenty of other options to choose from in attack and will need to make a decision over who partners Macauley Bonne up front.

Dan Holman impressed in Orient’s last home game – the victory over Woking – but David Mooney netted in the 3-1 success at Guiseley on Good Friday.

Given the encouraging signs in the Bonne and Holman partnership, the Cheltenham Town loanee can expect to retain his place in the starting XI this afternoon.

Orient did receive some good news on the injury front this week after the club confirmed first-team captain Charlie Lee had returned to full training.

Although the former Stevenage midfielder is edging closer to a first-team return, it is understood the club may decide not to use him in the final few games of the campaign and instead get him to focus on coming back raring to go for pre-season.
