TEAM NEWS: Brighton v Orient

Keeper Jones and winger Cox are set to return

GOALKEEPER Jamie Jones and winger Dean Cox are set to return for Saturday’s game against Brighton.

Adam Chambers is also likely to be back in the squad after undergoing an operation on his calves.

“Probably the only positive thing about our last three games being frozen off is that it has given Jamie Jones and Adam Chambers a little bit longer to recover from their operations,” said Orient boss Russell Slade.

“While ‘Coxie’ (Dean Cox) is over his virus by now.”
