Ross Embleton revealed the latest of the O’s injury front following the defeat to Colchester United on Thursday…

Conor Wilkinson has worked today, as has Joe Widdowson, before the game and looks like it has settled down quite a bit by the time kick-off came around so Conor I’m hoping will be a lot closer to it (in terms of Sunday’s trip to Newport County). We’ll do some more work with him tomorrow, alongside the rest of the group, to give them the best opportunity to be available.

Louis Dennis trained on Christmas Eve, he trained really really well so we’re delighted. It probably would have been foolish for us to include him today because of where he’s been out and the time he’s been out, so we’ve just got to get him up to scratch a little bit more. I think if he trains the way he did, we’ll have a fit and ready Louis Dennis pretty soon.

“Obviously, Jobi McAnuff‘s injury is well-documented that he’s been out for a long time, Sam Ling underwent an operation earlier this week so that’s going to see him out certainly until the end of January, mid-February and Dean Brill we’re hoping won’t be until the end of the season, but it’s looking much more that way.”
