Frazer Shaw to return to starting team for massive FA Cup second round replay tonight

Leyton Orient defender Frazer Shaw will slot back in at left-back this evening for the second round FA Cup replay against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

The 20-year-old was left on the substitutes bench during the 1-1 draw at Mansfield Town on Saturday in League Two.

Head coach Ian Hendon confirmed it was because the former West Ham United youngsters had a slight niggle.

Cole Kpekawa replaced him, but the QPR loanee isn’t available for tonight’s match with the Iron due to the terms of his loan.

Therefore Shaw, who has been excellent since returning to the team on November 7 against Staines Town, will come back into the team.

Bradley Pritchard is another that could earn a recall ahead of the clash against the League One team this evening.

He was alongside Shaw as a replacement on Saturday, but Blair Turgott didn’t make the most of his opportunity on the pitch.

It means Pritchard could come back in to shore the midfield up as O’s look to upset the odds at Glanford Park.

A victory for Orient would earn them £27,000 in prize money and a plum tie at Premier League champions Chelsea in the next round on January 10.
