Smith poised to start
Jimmy Smith could return to the Leyton Orient starting line-up for the npower League One trip to Hartlepool.
The midfielder needed an operation on a broken cheekbone earlier this month but made his comeback as a late substitute against Yeovil last weekend. On-loan Southampton defender Ryan Dickson is still suspended following his red card at Sheffield United a fortnight ago, so utility man Leon McSweeney will once again deputise at left-back against the club he left last summer. Centre-half Scott Cuthbert is still out with a hamstring injury and goalkeeper Lee Butcher has a knee problem. Russell Slade's side are currently four points above the relegation zone after they ended a run of five straight defeats with a 2-2 draw against the Glovers.
