Striker Lisbie close to an Orient return

Striker could be back for MK Dons trip

Striker Kevin Lisbie could return to the Orient squad for tomorrow’s trip to MK Dons.

Lisbie returned to training last week following a hamstring injury sustained against Sheffield United and has missed the last six games during which time Orient have managed to score just two goals.

The striker is unlikely to start, but could be on the bench, which would give manager Russell Slade more striking options.

Defender Scott Cuthbert is also back in training, but is a little bit further behind Lisbie in the comeback stakes.

Orient’s FA Cup first round tie at Gloucester City on Sunday was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch and no date had yet been agreed for the rescheduling of the fixture.

The O’s are keen to play the game next Tuesday night, but the Blue Square Bet North side want to play on a Wednesday.
