PREVIEW: Leyton Orient v Macclesfield Town

13 April 2018

The O’s are on the road tomorrow afternoon (12:30pm kick-off) when they take on Macclesfield at Moss Rose in the Vanarama National League in front of BT Sport TV cameras.

Justin Edinburgh’s men travel to Cheshire on the back of a 4-1 win over Barrow AFC, when a Macauley Bonne brace and Josh Koroma goal wrapped up the three points for the O’s.

Macclesfield host Orient on the after a 0-2 win at Boreham wood on Tuesday night, Tyrone Marsh’s double pushed The Silkmen 12 points clear at the top of the National League table.

The last time the two sides met was back in October, when a single Scott Wilson goal slumped the O’s to defeat.

Orient have been in good form of late and after last weekend’s home win the O’s made it three successive wins.

TEAM NEWS

Forward Dan Holman is unlikely to feature for the O’s this weekend after he sustained an injury to his foot in the Guiseley fixture.

Central defender Josh Coulson is likely to be out for a spell on the side-lines after he suffered a toe injury in the 4-1 win over Barrow AFC last weekend.

Otherwise, Edinburgh should have a near full-strength squad to select from, defender Marvin Ekpiteta could make his first start after his home debut performance in the win over Barrow on Saturday.
