Chester boss Keith Curle expects to name an unchanged squad for Tuesday’s trip to high-flying Leyton Orient.

Orient occupy third position in League Two but Chester’s confidence will be sky-high after they beat Nottingham Forest 3-0 in the FA Cup second round at the weekend.

Strikers Michael Branch (knee), and Gregg Blundell (thigh) both remain sidelined, as does former Kilmarnock defender Sean Hessey (knee). Marcus Richardson (hamstring) was a doubt for the Forest game, but played 70 minutes and now faces a late fitness test for the Brisbane Road clash.

Manager Keith Curle said: ‘They are in the top three so there is another big effort required. We won’t be complacent (after the FA Cup win).’
