Duo in Orient contention

Elliot Omozusi and Kevin Lisbie could return to the Leyton Orient squad for the visit of Tranmere.

Full-back Omozusi missed Monday's 3-1 defeat by Wolves with a hip problem and striker Lisbie has sat out two games with a groin injury, but boss Russell Slade is hopeful both will be fit.

Slade insists he will not rest players despite being guaranteed a play-off place, but he could recall Lloyd James to the midfield after he dropped to the bench against Wolves.

Midfielder Marvin Bartley remains sidelined due to a hamstring problem.

Tranmere caretaker boss John McMahon has numerous injury concerns.

Rovers, just one point above the drop zone with two games to play, will remain without their captain James Wallace (groin) as well as veteran midfielder Jason Koumas (foot).

McMahon has to had to cope without those two in recent weeks but his injury list is now much longer with defensive pair Liam Ridehalgh (knee) and Ian Goodison (thigh), along with forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (thigh) and midfielder Steve Jennings (knee) all doubtful.

It means Rovers, who are also without Abdulai Baggie (knee), will have to call on youth-team players with McMahon confirming there is no way he can recall full-back Evan Horwood from his loan at Northampton.
