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.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
