A QUARTET of O’s players avoided suspensions ahead of Tuesday’s npower League 1 match at Yeovil Town.

Mathieu Baudry, Michael Symes, Leon McSweeney and Lee Cook all went into Saturday’s victory over Walsall on four yellow cards, but managed to stay out of referee Gavin Ward’s notebook.
Up until December 31, players who reach five yellow cards receive a ban, but after that date the threshold increases to ten.
Anthony Griffith and Martin Rowlands also picked up their fourth bookings of the campaign at the weekend, but they, like their four teammates, will now have to be booked a further six times to miss a match.
Ben Chorley is now the O’s closest player to a suspension, as he has been yellow carded eight times this term.
