Leyton Orient Team News

18 August 2016

SEAN McAllister is to be monitored before Saturday's visit of Leyton Orient, with the midfielder set to undergo a scan on an unspecified injury, according to Assistant manager, Chris Doig in the club's pre-match press conference.

The midfielder is the only doubt for the Mariners, with all players taking part in training. When asked about injuries picked up during Tuesday's 3-2 defeat away at Colchester, Chris Doig stated "there are a few bumps and bruises but there's nothing concerning. We've basically got everybody back in training now but obviously some are at different stages having been out injured".

Craig Disley made his eagerly anticipated return to action in the second half on Tuesday, scoring with his first touch back in the Football League. "It wasn't a bad first touch back in the Football League" mentioned Doig. "It was disappointing to lose him in pre season, but the rules state he needs to be out for the two weeks". 

With Disley returning to the team, Chris Doig was asked about his performance and the possibility of starting on Saturday. "He did very well...it was disappointing to lose him for the period but he came on and showed us what he can do and put in a good performance". He then went on to say that he will come into consideration for selection this weekend.

After conceding three goals in the opening half on Tuesday, the assistant manager was asked whether or not this highlights the need to bring in a new defender. "I wouldn't say we need to bring one in because of what happened, we're looking to bring a defender in anyway. It's probably just highlighted certain things but that's not changed anything."
