Jamie on the mend after shoulder injury

Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones, who has been out of action with a shoulder problem has returned to training.

Manager Russell Slade said: “We have been working hard to strengthen his shoulder up and we are making progress. Jamie is set to resume training today and we will see how he progresses over the next week or so.”

Skipper Stephen Dawson, and summer signings Marc Laird and David Mooney were also set to train today and there is a possibility they could be available for selection when O’s host Tranmere on Saturday,

“We will have to see how they go,” said the Orient boss. “I think we’ll have to leave selection until the last minute because of the fitness checks.

“There could also be a doubt over Dean Cox too, after he took a knock on his ankle at Southend.”
