The O's will potentially be without six senior players for the clash in Wales

Jobi McAnuff will miss Leyton Orient’s trip to Wrexham this afternoon (Saturday) in the National League.

The winger, who has only just returned from a groin problem on Tuesday night, has to serve a one-match ban after receiving his fifth booking of the season during the 2-0 loss against Gateshead.

Joe Widdowson came off in the defeat with a hamstring issue and looks set to miss out later today.

Meanwhile, Alex Lawless (groin) remains unavailable alongside long-term absentees Charlie Lee (ACL), George Elokobi (hamstring) and Josh Coulson (groin).

On a positive front, Steve Davis will have Matt Harrold back on the bench after letting him fully recover from his calf injury.

With Widdowson injured, the Orient boss will have to make another change to his defence and Jamie Sendles-White may return after getting over a recent illness.

Davis will be desperate to see his O’s team get a positive result today and end their run of nine league games without a victory.
