NEWS: O's Wait On Odubajo & Smith

16 November 2012

Pair battling for Carlisle fitness after picking up midweek knocks

ORIENT are waiting on the fitness of Moses Odubajo and Jimmy Smith ahead of Saturday's game at Carlisle United.

The pair were withdrawn early from the action at Gloucester City on Wednesday night after picking up minor injuries.

Odubajo complained of a tight groin muscle, while Smith was the victim of a kick which caused his substitution.

O's boss Russell Slade will take a late look at both of them but remains hopeful that they will be available for the Brunton Park clash.

Elsewhere, Slade has decisions to make after giving a number of fringe players a run-out in the FA Cup match.

Mathieu Baudry impressed in defence, while Anthony Griffith and Ryan Brunt came into the team, but the likes of Ben Chorley and Kevin Lisbie will be looking to return to the starting line-up this weekend.
