The O's will wait to see if George Elokobi or James Brophy will be fit to face the Dragons

Justin Edinburgh may have to make changes to his Leyton Orient team for the visit of National League play-off chasers Wrexham today.

The O’s lost 1-0 at Hartlepool United on Tuesday night and saw both George Elokobi and James Brophy go off through injury.

Elokobi picked up a thigh problem while Brophy injured his hamstring and Edinburgh will now wait for further news on the pair.

Josh Koroma started for Orient at Victoria Park after back-to-back goals, but may find himself back on the bench this afternoon.

David Mooney is pushing for another start while Cheltenham Town loanee Dan Holman should be available again after a recent toe injury.

Alex Lawless missed Tuesday’s match with a groin injury, something which has hampered throughout the season, and isn’t likely to be fit for the clash with Wrexham.

This will be O’s penultimate home game of the campaign and Edinburgh will be keen for his players to register another positive result.
