Leyton Orient could welcome Nigel Atangana back against Portsmouth

Leyton Orient could welcome Nigel Atangana back from injury against Portsmouth at the Matchroom Stadium.

The midfielder has been sidelined with a groin problem, but could return to the starting line-up as new Leyton Orient manager Alberto Cavasin prepares for his first league match this weekend.

Midfielder Robbie Weir will miss out as he serves the second game of a three-match ban.

New-signing Jens Janse is also suspended following a red card on his debut against Plymouth.

Portsmouth may ring changes to their side ahead of their trip to London.

Curtis Main will look to challenge for a place after scoring a brace in Pompey's 2-2 draw against Reading midweek, while Milan Lalkovic and Kyle Bennett are also in contention to feature.

Defender Adam Buxton is sidelined with an injured ankle, while Noel Hunt (groin) and Drew Talbot (hamstring) are also missing.

Ben Close (hamstring) is another absentee as Portsmouth look to return to winning ways after two consecutive league defeats.
