Orient slipped out of the top-seven for the first time when drawing 1-1 last time out in the league against AFC Wimbledon on November 28.
Victory tomorrow however will see the O’s move above the Stags, and despite coming up against a former side, Palmer is keen to keep preparations as normal as possible ahead of the trip to the One Call Stadium.
“I am not too bothered about going back there,” Palmer told Orient PlayerHD. “I am enjoying my time at Leyton Orient and my career is here now.
“Coming up against a former side is not part of thinking. It is just another opposition at the end of the day and the aim as ever is to go there and come away with the three point.”
