access_time 7 years ago


Orient slipped to their first defeat in five matches in the 1-0 loss at home to Doncaster Rovers, as Rob Jones’ 55th minute header proved to be the difference between the two sides on Tuesday.

The result left the O’s in 19th place,  and they are outside the League One relegation zone on goal difference.

MK Dons are currently third in the table going into this weekend’s game and are  on a seven-game unbeaten run, including a 3-0 win over Fleetwood Town on Tuesday.


Orient have injury doubts over Dean Cox, Bradley Pritchard and Andrea Dossena going into the match  while Kevin Lisbie, who has returned from his loan spell with Stevenage, is ruled out after picking up an injury while with the League Two outfit.

Gary Woods is likely to miss out once more with a back injury, meaning first-year scholar Sam Sargeant may well take his place on the bench once again. Goalkeeper Adam Legzdins and midfielder Romain Vincelot remaining long-term absentees with respective shoulder and knee injuries.
