Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade has to decide whether to start with Kevin Lisbie.

Striker Lisbie marked his return from missing a month due to a hamstring injury with a brace of goals on Saturday to help Orient to a 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury.

But Slade may feel his team has enough firepower to see off non-league Gloucester and could protect his number nine following his lengthy lay-off, with the O's boss admitting he was close to taking Lisbie off against the Shrews before he grabbed a late winner.

"He holds the ball up and he has a cleverness about him. He allows us to push up the field, he allows us to build up play," he told the club's official website.

"He's a big part of that and you could see it on Saturday. He also got a bit of a knock on both his leg and his head early on.

"We were having to monitor him and there was a temptation to take him off late on, but I'm glad I decided to keep him on."

Slade has no other injury worries ahead of the clash.
