O’s defender Connor Essam is back and ready to challenge for a place in the starting line-up for the Boxing Day clash with Portsmouth.

The 23-year-old has just returned to the matchday squad following an ankle injury picked up in the defeat to Accrington Stanley at the end of October, and played 45 minutes in Tuesday’s friendly at Bishop’s Stortford.

And now the defender, who had been an ever-present up until the injury, is keen to force his way back into Head Coach Ian Hendon’s starting XI.
