Bristol C v Leyton O preview

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between Bristol City and Leyton Orient at Ashton Gate.

The Robins will have Luke Freeman available as they look to cement their place at the top of League One when they host Orient.

The former Stevenage playmaker was withdrawn 65 minutes into their 2-1 win over Colchester on Saturday but manager Steve Cotterill has confirmed that it was just fatigue and he will ready for selection.

That means Cotterill could name an unchanged 11 with in-form Aaron Wilbraham partnering Sam Baldock up front once more against Orient.

You have to go back to November 1980 to find the last time City lost to Tuesday night's opponents in a league meeting, a run of nine games.

Orient boss Russell Slade must decide whether to restore Kevin Lisbie to his starting line-up.

The veteran striker dropped to the bench at Oldham on Saturday but came on to score with his first touch and wrap up a 3-1 win for the O's.

Fellow forwards Shaun Batt (calf) and Chris Dagnall (ankle) are carrying injuries so Slade will choose between Lisbie, Darius Henderson and David Mooney in attack.

Midfielder Lloyd James made the bench at the weekend despite a knee knock and should be involved again.
