Football - Symes hamstrung for Orient

Michael Symes remains an injury doubt for Leyton Orient ahead of the trip to Notts County.

The striker missed last week's 3-1 defeat by Scunthorpe with a hamstring problem.

Skipper Nathan Clarke is still sidelined after a setback in his recovery from a foot injury.

The defender suffered the injury against Portsmouth last month but a scan last week revealed a hairline fracture which will keep him out for another month.

But Orient have no new injury worries and boss Russell Slade could stick with an unchanged line-up despite seeing his side's eight-match winning streak grind to a halt against the Iron.

That would mean defender Scott Cuthbert starting on the bench again having recently recovered from a long-term hamstring injury.
