Skipper Mathieu Baudry is hoping to hit the ground running now he’s back available to player-manager Kevin Nolan.

The defender has missed the last four games following his second red card of the season in the 1-0 win at Oxford United, and in his absence the O’s have picked up four points.

Baudry played just over an hour in the 4-0 Development League win against Cambridge United, and picked up a facial injury after a clash with former O Robbie Simpson.

However, the skipper is pleased to be back involved for the final six games of the regular campaign.

“It is always frustrating sitting there watching the boys and we have had a few disappointing results as well but we stopped the run of defeats last weekend and we will look to build on that,” he told Orient PlayerHD.

“It’s tough watching from the stands. We didn’t start well at York but we battled well in the second period. We are down to the final six games now and we need to deliver.

“It will be tough at Barnet with their good record, however, we know we have to pick up positive results to give ourselves the best possible opportunity.”
