THE VIEW FROM THE EAST
Leyton Orient skipper Mathieu Baudry is suspended following a straight red card.
He picked the red card up in the second half of the 3-2 win over Portsmouth on Boxing Day.
League Two’s top goalscorer Jay Simpson is a doubt having come off with a calf injury in the Pompey victory.
Midfielder Lloyd James is still struggling with an ankle injury and could miss the match against his hometown club.
Blair Turgott and John Marquis both made the matchday squad against Pompey.
Connor Essam is probably available after his ankle injury.
Sammy Moore is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a burst blood capsule behind his knee.
But the Bristol Rovers match is likely to have come too soon for the midfielder.
