Fleetwood’s unbeaten run in League 1 will come under threat from Leyton Orient on Saturday when they come to Highbury.

Graham Alexander will be pleased to hear that the injury problems that he’s had to contend with are beginning to ease.

Stephen Dobbie (ankle problem) is still not ready to return but the Crystal Palace loanee is getting closer to full fitness with Stephen Jordan beneficial to a week off, with us out of the Capital One Cup, after he missed the Chesterfield draw last weekend.

Also back training is Keith Southern (hernia problem) with Jeff Hughes and Mark Roberts returning in a recent U21 game but Jamille Matt (leg) was ruled out for the season before it even started.

Leyton Orient stunned Aston Villa in the Capital One cup this week and this leaves a few selection dilemmas for Russell Slade.

Kevin Lisbie (shoulder) is the only major absentee but they could have Shaun Batt (calf problem) back with him closer to full fitness.

Beaten in the Play-Off Final last season, Leyton Orient weren’t far of the Championship and they’ll be in the promotion mix against this season. A point would be a bad point, even though it’s at home, and I’ll be happy with that.
