access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men travel to County Durham on the back of a 1-1 draw at Macclesfield Town on Saturday afternoon when Josh Koroma’s goal levelled the scores after 42 minutes.

Hartlepool welcome Orient after rescuing a point away to Sutton United on Saturday afternoon. Josh Hawkes came up with a goal, in the 26th minute to cancel out the hosts early strike.

In the reverse fixture, Jobi McAnuff’s first-half opener was overturned by Hartlepool goals a minute either side of the half-time whistle which condemned the O’s to defeat.

Orient’s good form continued with the draw at Macclesfield stretching the unbeaten run to five, including three wins in the process.


Edinburgh should have a near full-strength squad to select from tonight, Josh Koroma was substituted early at Macclesfield but should be fit to play a part in this evening’s fixture.

Matt Harrold and James Dayton remain long term absentees for the O’s.
