Leyton Orient duo Jay Simpson and Nigel Atangana face late fitness tests

Leyton Orient manager Andy Hessenthaler will give late fitness tests to Jay Simpson and Nigel Atangana ahead of Saturday's League Two match at home to Yeovil.

Simpson has been out for a month with a back problem while Atangana suffered an impact injury against Stevenage two weeks ago.

Both players, however, have trained this week and Hessenthaler is hopeful the pair might be available this weekend.

Orient sit eighth in the table and have lost only once in their last six matches.

Yeovil boss Darren Way is set to make changes as he aims to stem his side's run of five consecutive defeats.

Defender Bevis Mugabe is in line for a recall after sitting on the bench for last week's loss to Hartlepool following a one-match suspension.

Loan pair Ben Whitfield and Kyle Copp are also pushing to make their first league starts.

Alex Lacey is set to continue as captain after returning earlier than expected from a broken arm for last week's loss.
