access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s side come in to the fixture on the back of a physical encounter with Solihull Moors at The Breyer Group Stadium on Tuesday night, the O’s came out on top with a 3-0 victory.

Jamie Fullarton’s side in good form having won five, drawn two and lost only two of their previous nine games.

Last time out, The Shaymen were held to a goalless draw with Wrexham which now sees the side sit fourth in the National League table, two points below Orient.


Edinburgh is likely to have a similar squad to select from tomorrow, as he did in Tuesday night’s fixture against Solihull Moors.

The O’s will be boosted by the availability of James Alabi who has now served his three-game suspension.

Orient will be without midfielder Dale Gorman who is away with the Northern Ireland U21 squad on international duty. Meanwhile, Edinburgh will monitor the fitness of full-back Sam Ling as he recovers from an ankle injury.


The sixth episode of the O’s show can be watched on the Club’s YouTube channel by clicking here.

Episode six includes:

  • A catch-up with Head Physio Ketan Patel
  • TEAMMATES featuring Myles Judd and Josh Koroma


Simon Mather will be the referee for tomorrow’s fixture at The Shay. This will be Mather’s second National League appointment this term, his first came at Harrogate Town, while the second was at Hartlepool where the official has handed out seven yellow cards and one penalty.
