Paul McCallum has scored seven times for O’s this season despite starting just 10 matches in all competitions

Paul McCallum could be handed a start when Leyton Orient entertain Exeter City at Brisbane Road this evening.

It is a crucial League Two fixture at the bottom of the table with both sides desperate to improve their fortunes.

McCallum netted a consolation for the O’s during their 2-1 defeat at home to Blackpool on Saturday and may be included from the off tonight.

Exeter also head into the match following a loss - conceded twice in stoppage time to agonisingly go down 3-2 at Carlisle United.

Alberto Cavasin may have to change to his back four with Yvan Erichot being forced off at the weekend.

If the French defender isn’t fit, Alan Dunne will be pushing for a start with Jens Janse still out with a shoulder problem.

Harry Cornick continues to struggle with a groin issue and is recovering at parent club AFC Bournemouth while Liam Kelly will not play again until 2017.

Zan Benedicic and Jordan Bowery haven’t featured in Orient’s most recent match day squads and are unlikely to be involved tonight.

Ulrich Nnomo is nearing his way back to full fitness after an ankle injury, though doesn’t appear in contention to play just yet.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
