Football - Clarke could miss out for O's

Leyton Orient are likely to be without the services of defender Nathan Clarke when they host Coventry in the Capital One Cup.

PA Sport Report

Clarke was forced off after 30 minutes of Saturday's 5-1 win at Carlisle after suffering a head injury in a clash with Lee Miller which saw the Carlisle forward sent off. He went to hospital but travelled back on the team coach.

Elliot Omozusi replaced him on the day and could deputise from the start, while De'Reece Vanderhyde offers further options at the back.

O's boss Russell Slade is expected to shuffle his pack further and could include midfielders Dean Cox and Burnley loanee Marvin Bartley in his starting line-up.
