A goalless draw with the Hammers, and a 1-1 draw with Spurs got the O’s heading in the right direction, as Ruel Sotiriou netted in front of a limited crowd at the Breyer Group Stadium.
New signing Tom James will be available to Kenny Jackett, with the right-back signing a one-year deal after departing Scottish Premiership side Hibs.
Adam Thompson remains the only long-term absentee, who continues to step up his rehabilitation from injury, whilst the game comes too soon for Omar Beckles, who has now concluded his international duty with Grenada.
Long-standing manager Alan Devonshire is heading into his sixth season with the Magpies, with the West Ham legend having established them as a National League side. In total it will be his 13th season at York Road, having first managed Maidenhead United from 1996-2003.
Last season, they secured a 13th place finish, just behind their highest ever effort of 12th. This was, in part, down to the fine form of Danilo Orsi-Dadamo, who notched 19 goals, before securing a move to the EFL with Harrogate Town.
Winger Sam Barratt (pictured above), however, who scored 15 goals last campaign and earned himself a spot in the National League team of the season, has recently penned a two-year deal with the club – great news for the Magpies.
For the first time in almost a year, Orient fans are able to attend the game as away supporters, following the recent change in government restrictions.
Tickets are available for £10, and can be purchased via the Maidenhead website here.
