Vincelot banned for O's

Leyton Orient will be without Romain Vincelot through suspension when they host Oldham.

The combative midfielder collected his 10th booking of the season during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Walsall and starts a two-match ban, so Marvin Bartley or Jamie Ness will step in.

Kevin Lisbie may return in attack after dropping to the bench at the weekend while fellow striker Shaun Batt will be checked over after a late injury saw him replaced in the squad by Yohann Lasimant.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones made a welcome return on the bench after three months out with a back injury and should be involved again.

Oldham will be without on-loan midfielder Joel Byrom.

The 27-year-old has had to go back to parent club Preston after pulling his hamstring, which forced him to miss Saturday's crucial win over Stevenage, but boss Lee Johnson is hopeful he can still return to Boundary Park for the season's final few matches.

Captain Korey Smith played 90 minutes at the weekend and his knee problem needs to be managed while David Worrall, who started against Stevenage, needs similar conditioning work following a long-term groin injury.

Centre-back Genseric Kusunga has had a minor operation which is unrelated to his thigh injury and should be back training within the next 10 days. Midfielder Anton Rodgers also remains out with a knee problem.
