Orient take on Crewe looking to pull clear of the League 1 relegation zone. Alexandra were bottom of the table for the majority of the campaign so far but have jumped above Yeovil after an upturn in form in recent weeks.
Orient did the double over Crewe last season, and will be hoping to get their first home League win after tasting victory in E10 last week against Northampton Town in the Johstone’s Paint Trophy.
In terms of team news, Mauro Milanese welcomed back Romain Vincelot and David Mooney at Gillingham whilst Jack Price has returned to the club and is over the illness which kept him out of the trip to Priestfield. More worrying for the O’s boss was Shane Lowry and Jay Simpson limping off during the 3-2 defeat and he will wait on the fitness of both. Jobi McAnuff has returned from international duty though is rated as unlikely to play after four games for Jamaica in the last week.
There will be cash turnstiles available in the East and South Stand whilst the North Stand is close to selling out. For ticket collection and queries head to the West Stand Ticket Office.
Hospitality guests should enter via the West Stand reception on Oliver Road from 12:30pm
Away supporters will be situated in the East Stand on Brisbane Road.
