NEWS: O's Wait On Rowlands Fitness

28 September 2012

Team news ahead of Saturday's game against Doncaster Rovers

ORIENT are sweating on the fitness of Martin Rowlands ahead of Saturday's game against Doncaster Rovers.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who penned a new contract with the club this week, was substituted with a minor hamstring injury in last week's game against Crewe and is a doubt for the visit of Doncaster as a result.

Anthony Griffith is suspended after being sent off at the Alexandra Stadium, so the likes of Jimmy Smith, Marc Laird and Mathieu Baudry will be fighting for a place in midfield.

Lloyd James and David Mooney have returned to training this week, so they could come back into Russell Slade's squad.

The O's boss said: "Martin's probably 50/50 for Saturday. We'll see how he is in the morning and make a decision from there.

"The other news is a little more positive - Lloyd James and David Mooney are back in training. They've only done a session or two this week, but it is good news for us because we have a busy month ahead."
