Leyton Orient could hand keeper Jamie Jones an early comeback this weekend at home to Bradford after Eldin Jakupovic was recalled by Hull City.

Jones has been out since Christmas with a hairline fracture of his back but has been named on the bench for the last two matches. 

The O's are likely to be without midfielder Marvin Bartley for this weekend's game.

Bartley replaced the suspended Romain Vincelot in Tuesday's draw with Oldham but went off injured after just 20 minutes.

But Everton midfielder John Lundstram could make his debut after joining on loan yesterday. 

Russell Slade's side will definitely be without Vincelot as he serves the second game of his two-match ban.

Orient's automatic promotion hopes are fading fast after winning just one of their last five League 1 games. 

The Bantams are still not safe from relegation after losing four of their last six matches. Bradford held Orient to a 1-1 draw back in December after they snatched a last minute equaliser. 

The East London Guardian Series will be the match-day sponsors of this weekend’s home game.

Anyone attending the clash will be able to help the Guardian Series choose the man-of-the-match. If you want to get involved in the selection process you can contact Vicky Wright via Twitter @advertsguardian during the League 1 match at Brisbane Road.
