Ollie Palmer a fitness doubt ahead of the match with Morecambe

Leyton Orient are sweating on the fitness of forward Ollie Palmer ahead of their trip to Morecambe later today (Saturday) in League Two.

The 23-year-old was forced off against Luton Town on Tuesday night in the 71st minute after suffering a slight hamstring injury during the 1-1 draw.

Dean Cox replaced him at Kenilworth Road and may start at the Globe Arena if Palmer doesn’t recover in time.

Palmer will have to undergo a fitness test before the match with the Seasiders and boss Ian Hendon will hope to have the big forward available for selection.

The O’s are unlikely to be changed other than that with the back four expected to remain as it was at the Hatters during the week despite again failing to keep a clean sheet.

John Marquis should retain his place in the side, but the east Londoners know they will be without striker Paul McCallum.

He had knee surgery this week after suffering cruciate ligament damage at Northampton Town last month and is set to miss most of the campaign.
