Leyton Orient have no recognised left-back.

Southampton loanee Ryan Dickson, the latest player to attempt to hold down what has been a problem position for the O's all season, will miss the rest of the campaign through suspension after he was sent off at Sheffield United last weekend.

Midfielder Leon McSweeney has deputised on many occasions this term but he is only just back in training after missing six matches with a calf injury and centre-back Dean Leacock, who filled in after Dickson was red-carded, is struggling with a foot problem.

Defender Scott Cuthbert is still out with a hamstring injury, midfielder Jimmy Smith has a broken jaw and goalkeeper Lee Butcher a knee problem.

Yeovil will be without suspended duo Michael Woods and Ed Upson.

Woods was sent off after 33 minutes of the Glovers' 6-0 home humiliation by Stevenage last time out for a rash tackle on Michael Bostwick and serves the first match of the a three-game ban for the trip to the Brisbane Road.

Upson, meanwhile, sits out the second game of his three-match suspension having accrued 15 yellow cards over the course of the campaign.

A victory for the Somerset side would guarantee survival in League One, although Yeovil will secure safety even if they lose should results elsewhere go in their favour.

Manager Gary Johnson has no new injury worries ahead of visit to the O's.
