Football - Orient in defensive reshuffle

Leyton Orient have problems in defence with Nathan Clarke and Mathieu Baudry doubts for the visit of Carlisle.

Skipper Clarke missed Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Portsmouth with a rib injury and fellow centre-half Baudry had to go off after taking a knock to his hip.

Scott Cuthbert moved from right-back into the centre, and took the armband, in Clarke's absence while Elliot Omozusi joined him in the second half after coming on for Baudry.

Full-back Gary Sawyer is fit after a knee problem but striker David Mooney is struggling with a thigh injury.

Experienced duo Martin Rowlands and Kevin Lisbie could return to the starting line-up after they dropped to the bench against Pompey, with both coming on during the second half.
