Eldin Jakupovic: Set to keep his place in the side

Leyton Orient could be unchanged for the visit of Carlisle.

Their new loan signings, goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic and striker Jamar Loza, impressed in the 2-0 midweek win over Shrewsbury which took the O's back up to second and are set to keep their places.

Midfielder Romain Vincelot is still out with a knee problem and striker David Mooney has a foot injury, but both could be in contention to face Crewe next weekend.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones remains sidelined with a back injury and forward Shaun Batt could miss the majority of the season with a torn hamstring.

Carlisle defender Danny Livesey will miss the clash at Leyton Orient after suffering an injury setback this week.

The central defender had been sidelined with a calf injury and the problem recurred when returning to training, so he remains sidelined with midfielder Paul Thirlwell, who is struggling with a similar problem.

Sean O'Hanlon (knee) is expected to continue at the heart of defence alongside Max Ehmer after coming through the FA Cup defeat at Sunderland unscathed, but Courtney Meppen-Walter (thigh/groin) is also in contention.

On-loan Manchester United winger Tom Lawrence was forced off late on at Sunderland as he was nursing a bruised foot, but is expected to resume in the starting line-up.
