Rooney in contention for Salford return

Salford boss Graham Alexander could make changes against Leyton Orient as he looks to halt a five-match winless run.

Striker Adam Rooney is an option, having had to settle for a place on the bench for the last two games.

Alexander has a healthy squad to choose from, with Thomas Walker also among the manager’s options should he choose to tinker.

Salford are without a win in any competition since the opening day of the season, drawing their last three League Two fixtures.

Orient, promoted from the National League last season along with Salford, could hand a debut to midfielder George Marsh.

Marsh joined the club last week on loan from Tottenham and has been an unused substitute in the subsequent two matches.

Caretaker boss Ross Embleton is still without club captain Jobi McAnuff (groin), winger James Dayton (ankle) and defender Jamie Turley (hamstring), who have yet to feature this season.

The O’s have won two and drawn two of their first five games back to the Football League this season.
