Darren Sarll forced into change in goal

Jamie Jones will miss Stevenage's Sky Bet League Two clash with Leyton Orient as he starts a three-match ban.

The goalkeeper was sent off in Saturday's 2-1 win at Crewe, after reacting to nasty challenge from striker Chris Dagnall, who was also dismissed following the ensuing scuffles.

Chris Day is the man who will likely replace him in goal after coming off the bench, while defender Ronnie Henry will face a late fitness test after missing the victory over Crewe with a knock.

Steve Schumacher remains in a similar position after missing the Crewe trip and is yet to return to training.

Nicky Hunt returns to the Orient squad following suspension.

The defender has completed a two-match ban after collecting 10 yellow cards this season and is likely to slot back into defence, with Teddy Mezague the likely casualty.

Skipper Liam Kelly is still out, though, as he serves the third game of a six-match ban for pushing a ball boy during the recent victory at Plymouth.

Defender Tom Parkes overcame a pelvic injury to start Saturday's defeat by Cheltenham but was replaced at half-time, with Michael Clark the man on standby.
