Chris Dagnall could make his first start for Leyton Orient in tonight's home game against Coventry City.

The new signing struck twice as a substitute in the O's 2-1 win at Crewe last week and must be in contention to partner Kevin Lisbie in attack.

Romain Vincelot is in line to make his return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench at Crewe following a spell out with a knee injury. 

Russell Slade's side could also be boosted by the return from injury for midfielder Marvin Bartley and top scorer David Mooney. Striker Mooney [foot injury] has not played since the Walsall win at the start of last month but could make his comeback tonight.

Slade said: "We’re just waiting for Moons to come back as well now which will be great.

“To have Romain back is a boost because he’s a great character and the heartbeat of our midfield for most of the season, so to have him back in is fantastic.

“Marv should be available as well. We’re hoping Marvin and Moons will be able to come back into it for the game against Coventry.”
