O's hope for Cuthbert boost

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade hopes Scott Cuthbert will be fit for Saturday's play-off semi-final first leg against Peterborough.

Defender Cuthbert, who has made 51 appearances for the O's this season, sat out the final-day 3-1 win at MK Dons with a hip injury.

Slade said: "He had a slight hip problem so we weren't taking any chances with that.

"We will be pretty hopeful that he will be available on Saturday. Otherwise I think we are okay with injuries."
