Match Preview

Dickson's in for O's

Ryan Dickson will be added to the Leyton Orient squad for the visit of Huddersfield.

Dickson has joined the O's from Southampton on loan for the rest of the season and is set to go straight in at left-back.

Last season's first-choice keeper Jamie Jones is finally fit after a summer shoulder operation and played for the reserves this week, but Lee Butcher is expected to get the nod in goal again.

Marc Laird continues in midfield after skipper Stephen Dawson, who had been sidelined with an ankle injury, joined Barnsley on deadline day.

Boss Russell Slade has a full squad available as his side look to bounce back from the home defeat by Colchester last time out.

Huddersfield will be without skipper Peter Clarke.

Clarke has been ruled out for between four and six weeks after having surgery this week to repair a double hernia, so Sean Morrison, on loan from Reading, will resume his partnership with Jamie McCombe at the heart of defence.

Gary Roberts continues his recovery from his recent double hernia operation and fellow winger Danny Ward, who missed last week's 1-1 draw with MK Dons, remains doubtful due to an ankle injury.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies completed his third full game for the development squad in midweek but may have to bide his time for a return to the starting line-up following two knee operations and a 10-month absence, with Ian Bennett expected to continue.

Strikers Lee Novak and Alan Lee, midfield trio Damien Johnson, Anton Robinson and Joey Gudjonsson and defenders Nathan and Tom Clarke, Antony Kay and Calum Woods all featured for the second string in midweek and are likely to be in contention.
