PREVIEW: Solihull Moors v Leyton Orient

1 December 2017

Justin Edinburgh takes charge of his first game as Head Coach tomorrow when we make the trip to Solihull Moors (kick-off 3pm) in the Vanarama National League.

Edinburgh was appointed on Wednesday, and the 47-year-old will be looking to get his tenure off to a positive start at Damson Park.

The O’s fell to a 3-0 defeat to Torquay on Saturday, Josh McQuoid opening the scoring on the 16th minute before Luke Young doubled the advantage. Jamie Reid wrapped up the win for the Gulls two minutes into the second half.

Solihull Moors are currently sat bottom, with three wins, four draws and 15 defeats from their 22 matches.

The Moors recently appointed Mark Yates as Manager and his side gained a draw against Gateshead last time out. Jordan Burrow opened the scoring from the spot before Wes Atkinson equalised just after the hour mark.

The O’s claimed a 3-1 victory over Solihull Moors in the reverse fixture back in August, with goals coming from Charlie Lee, David Mooney and George Elokobi.

TEAM NEWS

The O’s will be without defender Jake Caprice as he begins a three-match suspension following his sending-off in the defeat to Torquay, whilst Jamie Sendles-White is also ruled out through suspension after being charged for misconduct.

Goalkeeper Charlie Grainger picked up a shoulder injury last Saturday which led to the 21-year-old being subbed off at the interval, but he returned to training on Thursday and could be available tomorrow.

Midfielder Alex Lawless remains a doubt with a groin injury, but Head Coach Justin Edinburgh will be able to welcome back striker Macauley Bonne after the Zimbabwe international missed last Saturday through suspension.
