Alex Lawless and Dan Holman will return after missing last weekend's clash at Dover Athletic

Leyton Orient face a tough task up against Tranmere Rovers later this afternoon, but they go into the game without many major injury problems.

James Dayton was ruled out until the end of the season late last week after suffering a serious hamstring injury.

He joins Charlie Lee on the sidelines as a long-term absentee, but O’s don’t have too many other problems.

Myles Judd has struggled with a groin issue of late while Jamie Sendles-White is still not fully fit after a recent ankle injury.

Justin Edinburgh has plenty of options at his disposal aside from the aforementioned foursome.

Dan Holman could return today after he was ineligible for the clash at Dover Athletic, but Macauley Bonne, Matt Harrold and David Mooney all scored last weekend, so there is real competition for places in attack.

In defence, Sam Ling will hope to make his debut for Orient after signing from local rivals Dagenham & Redbridge on Wednesday.

Ling is likely to replace Jake Caprice at right-back while James Brophy and Joe Widdowson will be vying for the left-back role against the in-form Rovers, who have moved up to fourth in recent weeks due to their strong form.
