We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s National League game against Leyton Orient at The Super 6 Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Craig Hignett will hope to have two players back available to him for the weekend as Carl Magnay and Liam Noble both near fitness following recent injury problems.

Magnay missed the win over Braintree Town after being forced off with knee trouble during the game at Harrogate Town but could be back in contention to face Orient.

Noble has been nursing a calf strain over the last month but has now stepped up his work in training and the top scorer is hoping to beat the clock and return on Saturday.

Luke Williams is continuing his outdoor work after returning to light training following knee surgery but he remains a little way off in terms of being available for selection.

O’s boss Justin Edinburgh made seven changes to his starting line-up for last Saturday’s FA Trophy win over Blyth Spartans at Brisbane Road.

However, the likelihood is that Edinburgh will revert to a side more like the one which defeated Maidstone United 3-0 in their previous National League outing when they make the trip to Pools.

Josh Koroma is one player who won’t feature for Orient though – the talented young forward is out of action after suffering a hamstring injury in the victory over The Stones.
