Swindon v Leyton Orient preview

Date published: Friday 1st May 2015 10:43

Swindon will check on a number of players ahead of the home clash with Leyton Orient.

Captain Nathan Thompson (foot) and striker Jon Obika (back) missed the 1-1 draw at Colchester on Tuesday night and the pair will be monitored ahead of kick-off while Massimo Luongo has a slight ankle strain.

Harry Toffolo will miss out with a dead leg and boss Mark Cooper may decide to shuffle his pack once more with the play-offs on the horizon.

The Robins are without a win in four and will want to head into the first leg of their semi-final with three points behind them.

Leyton Orient will check on Darius Henderson ahead of the trip.

Henderson has missed the O’s last three matches, including the 1-1 draw against his former club Sheffield United last weekend, due to a hamstring injury.

Fellow striker Kevin Lisbie has an ankle problem while goalkeeper Adam Legzdins (shoulder) and midfielder Romain Vincelot (knee) are long-term absentees.

The O’s need a win and the three teams above them to lose to complete an unlikely escape from relegation.
