Daniels and Clarke out of Orient’s trip to Yeovil

League One: Yeovil v Leyton Orient, Tuesday 7.45pm.

Orient will be without defender Charlie Daniels and midfielder Tom Clarke for tonight’s game at Yeovil.

Daniels starts a three-match ban after being sent-off during Saturday’s match against Sheffield United and either Mike Cestor or Elliot Omozusi will take his place.

Clarke, on loan from Huddersfield Town, is also set to miss out with an ankle injury following a collision with Sheffield United goalkeeper Steve Simonsen at the weekend.

Marc Laird, who replaced Clarke at half-time on Saturday, is the likely replacement.
