TEAM NEWS: Colchester v Orient - Whing makes his Orient debut

Orient manager Russell Slade makes two changes for Saturday

ANDREW WHING and Adam Chambers were given the selection nod as Orient look to cure their away-day blues at Colchester United.

The O’s, without a win on their travels in the league since last January, are without skipper Stephen Dawson who picked up a ankle injury during Saturday’s 2-1 win against Rochdale.

He drops to the bench with Chambers coming in and Whing, on loan from Brighton, also makes his first start.

Whing’s likely to play at the back with Charlie Daniels pushing into a five-man midfield and Alex Revell playing as the lone striker. Ryan Jarvis drops onto the bench.

You may also want to watch:

Orient: Butcher, Omozusi, Chorley, Forbes, Whing, Cox, Spring, Chambers, Smith, Cox, Revell. Subs: Jones, Brown, Dawson, Jarvis, Tehoue, Cestor, Walker.

Referee: G Hegley.
