M’Poku out as Orient look to climb into the top half
Slade warns there are no easy games
ORIENT have the chance to climb into the top half of the table for the first time this season if they can beat Swindon at Brisbane Road tonight.
The O’s have lost just one of their last 17 games, but Orient boss Russell Slade warned: “There are no easy games in this division, but we’re returning to our home and our form has been good there, but we need to keep the momentumn going.”
Defender Ben Chorley missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Bournemouth with a calf strain and may come back into contention: “We will have to wait and see how he is,” said the O’s boss.
One man certain to miss out is on-loan winger Paul-Jose M’Poku, who is away on international duty with Belgium, while midfielder Adam Chambers is also ruled out after suffering a cut leg during last Tuesday’s match against Brighton.
