FORM: Following Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to MK Dons, Leyton Orient are now unbeaten in three. Despite still being without a home victory this season Orient have enjoyed much more success on the road and will be looking to continue their 10 game unbeaten run on Tuesday.

Doncaster have also found it tough at home so far this season winning only once out of five matches at the Keepmoat. Paul Dickov’s side are currently 14th in League 1 - two points ahead of Orient having played a game less - but will want to avenge Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Fleetwood.


TEAM NEWS: Orient will be without both Nathan Clarke and Mathieu Baudry in defence as the pair both picked up suspensions in Saturday’s draw. Orient are boosted by the return of Jobi McAnuff however after the midfielder served a suspension of his own at the weekend. The treatment room continues to be busy with Dean Cox, David Mooney, Gary Sawyer, Lloyd James, Kevin Lisbie and Adam Legzdins all carrying injuries. Kevin Nugent also a couple of fresh injury concerns from the weekend that he will make a call on before the trip. 

Doncaster could make several changes from the side that lost at Fleetwood on the weekend, with Dean Furman expected to return in midfield. Theo Robinson and Kyle Bennett may both also be handed starts whilst Curtis Main could make the bench as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
