Gloucester City boss David Mehew has a fully-fit squad to pick from when his side host League One Leyton Orient in the first round of the FA Cup.

The Blue Square Bet North outfit could welcome youngsters Joe Parker and Matt Liddiard into the fold for Sunday's clash but are expected to name an unchanged side from the team that took on Corby on Wednesday night.

Both players are in the Tigers' development squad and could be ready to make the step up to the first-team squad for the tie.

Otherwise Mehew has no fresh injury or suspension concerns ahead of their first appearance in the first round of the FA Cup in 23 years.

Leyton Orient will be without on-loan forward Scott Wagstaff.

Charlton have denied their player permission to play in the competition as it would prevent him being available for the Addicks in later rounds.

But boss Russell Slade was boosted with the news that Stoke had allowed Ryan Brunt to play in the game. The forward has scored three goals in 14 appearances for the O's and is expected to continue in attack.

The game is likely to come too soon for Kevin Lisbie and Scott Cuthbert, who have just returned to training following hamstring injuries.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones is fully fit after a shoulder injury and is pushing to retain his place from 20-year-old Ryan Allsopp.

But fellow keeper Lee Butcher remains a long-term absentee duo to a knee problem.
