THE TEAMS: Orient v Rochdale

Skipper Dawson is back for the O’s

ORIENT skipper Stephen Dawson returns to lead the side after a two-game absence through illness and injury, as Russell Slade’s team look to climb out of the bottom four.

He is back in midfield, with Adam Chambers dropping to the bench, alongside new loan-signing Andrew Whing.

There is also a rare start for striker Ryan Jarvis, as O’s are without strike duo Scott McGleish (rib injury) and Paul-Jose Mpoku (hamstring).

Fit-again goalkeeper Jamie Jones returns to the bench, but Lee Butcher retains his place in goal.

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

Refeee:Kevin Wright.
