Myles Judd is set to retain his place in the O's back four after making his comeback from a groin injury last weekend

Justin Edinburgh is set to keep faith with the young Leyton Orient defence which kept a clean sheet at home to Wrexham during Saturday’s 1-0 win.

Marvin Ekpiteta was the oldest of the back four at 22 and impressed alongside Dan Happe, 19, who was making his first start since March 6.

Sam Ling (21) has established himself as the first-choice right-back over the past couple of months, but Edinburgh handed a recall to 19-year-old Myles Judd and he lined up on the left of the defence due to Joe Widdowson’s thigh injury.

Judd shone during his first O’s outing since January 13 and will retain his position this evening for the visit of Maidenhead United.

Widdowson and George Elokobi are likely to both remain on the sidelines with thigh injuries respectively.

Elsewhere, Alex Lawless continues to be hampered by a groin injury and both Josh Coulson and Dan Holman have broken a metatarsal bone in recent weeks and will not play again this season.

Matt Harrold’s campaign ended when he suffered a hamstring problem at the start of the 3-0 win over Woking on March 24 and James Dayton tore his hamstring back in January.

Edinburgh’s main decision ahead of facing Alan Devonshire’s Magpies is who partners Macauley Bonne up front.

Josh Koroma has been preferred to David Mooney over the last three games and may get the nod again this evening despite Mooney’s bright cameo on Saturday.

A win for Orient tonight would go a long way to helping them secure a top-12 finish for the season.

Maidenhead currently occupy 12th-place, but are only a point ahead of the O’s while 14th-placed Gateshead are three off the east Londoners.

This is Orient’s last home match of the season and Edinburgh will be keen to end with four straight victories at Brisbane Road.
