Fabio Liverani expected to be without several key players for pivotal fixture

Leyton Orient have doubts over the fitness of Darius Henderson, Dean Cox and Andrea Dossena for tonight’s match with Rochdale.

O’s make the trip up to Spotland desperately needing a boost after their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of MK Dons on Saturday.

Henderson (hamstring), Cox (groin) and Dossena (hamstring) all missed the hammering at Stadium mk and again might not feature this evening.

Fabio Liverani is expected to recall Ryan Hedges in place of Jake Taylor after the on-loan Reading man was substituted at half time last weekend.

Josh Wright could also return to the starting team after he was on the bench against the Dons. Marvin Bartley may miss out.

Jay Simpson and Chris Dagnall are likely to remain up front together, but O’s manager might make changes to his back four.

Elliot Omozusi was an unused substitute on Saturday, but could come in for Lowry if Dossena remains unavailable.
