Orient duo back for Brentford derby

McGleish and Forbes set to win their fitness battle

ORIENT boss Russell Slade is likely to have injured duo Scott McGleish and Terrell Forbes available for Friday night’s derby duel with Brentford.

The duo missed Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Notts County, as striker McGleish was sidelined with a neck injury, while Forbes was suffering with a thigh strain.

It will be a major boost for Slade as the O’s face back-to-back home games against Brentford and then Walsall next Tuesday, as they look to climb out of the bottom four.
