PREVIEW: Salford City (A)

access_time 2 weeks ago

We’re back on the road tomorrow afternoon when we take on National League play-off winners Salford City.

The last time out for the O’s ended in defeat against Crawley Town, Josh Wright doubled his tally for the season and Lee Angol converted from the spot but it wasn’t enough to take maximum points in E10.

Meanwhile tomorrow’s challengers Salford City drew 2-2 with Carlisle United. The Ammies were ahead after 33 minutes thanks to Danny Whiteheads penalty in addition to Emmanuel Dieseruvwe’s 28th minute leveller, but Carlise notched their second through Stefan Scougall just two minutes before the break.

Salford currently occupy 15th place in League Two, a point behind Orient who sit in 13th on seven points.

TEAM NEWS

Ross Embleton will have a similar squad to select from tomorrow as he did for the visit of Crawley Town.

Joe Widdowson was the only new absentee last weekend and will face a fitness test ahead of the clash to determine his involvement.

REF WATCH

Tomorrow’s referee will be Marc Edwards, assisted by Geoffrey Liddle, Matthew Smith and Paul Hobay. Edwards last took charge of the O’s back in the National League, he booked Craig Clay and Dan Happe in our 2-0 win over Harrogate Town at The Breyer Group Stadium.

So far this term, Edwards has taken charge of two games and handed out four yellow cards.
