Team news ahead of Wednesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy match at Northampton

ORIENT will be without captain Nathan Clarke once again for Wednesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy trip to Northampton Town.

The defender suffered an ankle injury in the recent victory at Portsmouth and remains sidelined for the Sixfields Stadium clash.

Orient's only other injury absentee is Lee Butcher, who continues his recovery from a serious knee problem.

Gary Sawyer returns to the squad after serving his one-match suspension for Sunday's win at Alfreton and O's boss Russell Slade could shuffle his pack in the middle of a week of three away games.

Advance tickets are still available to purchase from the O's ticket office up until 2.30pm on Wednesday, after which time tickets will only be available on the night at Northampton.
