NEW loan signings John Spicer and Eric Lichaj both start for Leyton Orient in their game at Brentford this afternoon.
Lichaj, a versatile defender who has joined on a one month loan from Aston Villa, will slot in at right back, with skipper Stephen Purches having failed to shake off a persistent calf injury.
James Jones returns between the posts, but striker Scott McGleish also misses out due to injury and is not even fit enough to take a place on the substitutes' bench.
