Ollie Palmer will hope to be handed a start today as Leyton Orient make the trip to AFC Wimbledon later this afternoon in League Two.

The former Mansfield Town forward has made a huge impact off the substitute’s bench in the past two matches after being surprisingly dropped.

Last weekend he helped unsettle the Dagenham & Redbridge defence and on Tuesday he won O’s their penalty against Plymouth Argyle.

In contrast, Armand Gnanduillet, despite scoring on Saturday, has flattered to deceive and Palmer seems deserving of a start.
