Crewe V Leyton Orient at The Alexandra Stadium : Match Preview

20 April 2017

Crewe v Leyton Orient

Crewe could be without their entire back four this weekend as they welcome bottom of the league Leyton Orient.

Crewe boss David Artell may need to reshuffle as captain George Ray was forced off at half-time in their 3-0 defeat at Yeovil on Easter Monday.

Artell is also without Harry Davis, who suffered a knee injury while on loan at St. Mirren, Ben Nugent (knee) and Jon Guthrie (hernia).

Midfielder Billy Bingham may be asked to fill in at centre-back once again to cover Crewe's injury woes in defence.

Tom Parkes can return to the Orient squad as they attempt to stave off relegation for another week at least.

Defender Parkes is back in contention after completing a three-match ban following a red card against Wycombe earlier this month.

Striker Paul McCallum returned from a knee injury as a sub in the 2-1 win over Hartlepool on Monday and should be involved again.

Orient are now seven points from safety with only three games to go.
