Lisbie set for O's return

Kevin Lisbie could return to the Leyton Orient starting line-up for the visit of his former club Colchester.

The 14-goal striker shrugged off a back injury to appear as a late substitute in last weekend's 2-0 win over Swindon which sent the O's back to the top of the table.

Full-back Elliot Omozusi made his comeback from a groin problem against the Robins so boss Russell Slade has a fully-fit squad to choose from with the exception of goalkeeper Jamie Jones, who ha a long-term back injury.

Midfielder Lloyd James, who scored two penalties against Swindon, defender Nathan Clarke and forward David Mooney will also be facing their old club.

Colchester skipper Brian Wilson will be assessed ahead of the trip.

The full-back was forced off at half-time in Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United nursing a hamstring injury and faces a late fitness test.

Midfielder Alex Gilbey missed the game altogether due to a hamstring complaint of his own and he is unlikely to have recovered in time for the clash at Brisbane Road.

Forward Sanchez Watt serves the final game of his three-match suspension, while the likes of Craig Eastmond and Gavin Massey will be pushing for recalls.
