Former O’s forward Darius Henderson will return to Brisbane Road

Leyton Orient will host League One outfit Scunthorpe United in the second round of the FA Cup on the weekend of December 5.

Ian Hendon’s side defeated Staines Town 6-1 in the first round of the competition and their reward is a meeting with the Iron.

It means Darius Henderson, who spent last season with the O’s, will return to Brisbane Road for the tie after departing the east Londoners in the summer by mutual consent.

Orient will be happy to have another home tie, but fans will have the 4-1 loss they suffered to Scunthorpe last year fresh in their memory.

The Iron are currently 10th in League One with 23 points from their 16 games this season.
