access_time 9 years ago

BEN CHORLEY’S run of 10 starts in the heart of the O’s defence will come to an end for Tuesday’s against Barnet as the 30-year-old serves a one-match suspension.

Chorley collected his fifth booking of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United and the mandatory one-match ban kicks in immediately, so he is unavailable for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie but will be able to play when the O’s return to League 1 action at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Also missing on Tuesday will be striker Kevin Lisbie, who suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of the match against the Blades. He is looking at a spell of three weeks on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Lloyd James has recently returned from his ankle injury and came off the bench at the weekend to make his first appearance for over a month.
