Charlie Grainger missing for Leyton Orient's meeting with Northampton

Leyton Orient manager Kevin Nolan will be without back-up goalkeeper Charlie Grainger for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two match at home to Northampton.

Grainger will miss the clash with a wrist problem while Lloyd James (Achilles), Paul McCallum and Dean Cox (both knee) are also out.

Nolan handed debuts to Nicky Hunt and Shaun Brisley in last weekend's 1-0 win at Portsmouth and both are in line to feature again.

The O's have climbed up to seventh in the table and inside the play-off spots after three wins in their last four matches.

Northampton boss Chris Wilder is expecting a tough test when his league leaders travel to east London.

The Cobblers are five points clear at the summit and could hand debuts to new signings Danny Rose and Luke Prosser.

Lawson D'Ath is also in contention having overcome a groin problem but, despite having an almost fully-fit squad, Wilder knows what Orient are capable of.

"We are playing with a freedom and with a real positive attitude and we've got some fantastic games coming up. Leyton Orient are formidable opposition and I'm sure the team will match the personality and the winning mentality of their manager," he told the club's official website.
