Kevin Lisbie is expected to return to Leyton Orient's side this evening in their League 1 game at Shrewsbury Town.

The veteran striker was an unused substitute during Saturday's 4-0 FA Cup defeat at Yeovil Town and looks set to lead the attack tonight.

Tottenham loan signing Shaq Coulthirst could make his full debut after the teenage striker came off the bench at the weekend.

The O's can also call upon Jamar Loza after the Norwich City forward signed a youth loan yesterday.

Marvin Bartley should be available after missing the Yeovil defeat with a back injury and midfielder Jamie Ness is in line to make his first league start after impressing on his debut at the Glovers. 

Orient will move back into the automatic promotion places if they come away with a point tonight and manager Russell Slade is determined to take advantage of their games in hand. 

Slade said: "The important thing is we've lost nothing in the league and I couldn't help but feel pleased jumping up and down when Gillingham got a goal on Friday night [against Wolves].

"It gives us a great opportunity to get back in that top two and that's our priority between now and the end of the season."
