Alfreton v Leyton Orient preview

Team news ahead of Sunday's FA Cup second-round clash between Alfreton and Leyton Orient at North Street (kick-off 3.15pm).

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade could hand defender Scott Cuthbert his first start since August.

The 31-year-old centre-back has been missing with a hamstring injury picked up in the 3-1 loss to Tranmere but stepped up his recovery with a 90-minute run out for the O's reserves in midweek and is in contention for a place in the Londoners' starting XI.

Should Cuthbert start it is likely to be at the expense of Nathan Clarke, who has been struggling with an ankle injury of late and was absent for Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Preston.

However Slade could opt to stick with French defender Mathieu Baudry as Clarke's deputy. Baudry marked his first start since September with a goal at North End to help Orient to their fifth successive win.
