NEWS: Lisbie Absent With Hamstring Tear

11 January 2013

Striker to miss Saturday's game with Crewe Alexandra

ORIENT will be without striker Kevin Lisbie for Saturday's meeting with Crewe Alexandra as the 34-year-old has suffered a tear to his hamstring.

Lisbie sustained the injury in the second half of the O's 1-0 victory over Yeovil Town in midweek and had to be substituted.

He is facing a spell on the sidelines, so manager Russell Slade will be forced into a reshuffle up front.

The boss is also facing doubts over Ben Chorley and Martin Rowlands, who have picked up minor injuries in the last week.

He is hopeful that they could be available for selection at the weekend and will take a late look at their fitness.
