The O’s skipper Mathieu Baudry could miss out against League Two leaders

Leyton Orient captain Mathieu Baudry will have to go through a fitness test at Home Park to determine whether he is available to face the League Two leaders tonight.

Ian Hendon’s men take on Plymouth Argyle looking to pick up more success in the division after beating York City 3-2 at the weekend.

The O’s French skipper was forced off against the Minstermen with a hip problem and if he fails to play against the Pilgrims, QPR youngster Cole Kpekawa will make his full debut for the east Londoners.

He lined up alongside Jean-Yves M’voto, also making his Orient debut on Saturday, against York and the pair could play together again this evening.

Jobi McAnuff is expected to remain on the substitute’s bench with Hendon likely to keep the side the same as the one that won at Brisbane Road.

Young goalkeeper Charlie Grainger will be unavailable again with appendicitis so Sam Sargeant will be among the replacements.

Hendon is still without defender Connor Essam due to an ankle injury while Paul McCallum and Dean Cox are out long-term with cruciate ligament damage.

Nevertheless Orient will be confident of getting some reward from their encounter with leaders Plymouth.

Argyle lost at home to Exeter City on Saturday and suffered defeats to Millwall and Carlisle United already this month.
