Omer Riza set to be without several key players again on day when O’s could officially go down

Leyton Orient will again field a very inexperienced team for their latest League Two clash at Luton Town today.

The O’s could have their relegation to the National League confirmed at around 5pm if they lose at Kenilworth Road and Hartlepool United and Cheltenham Town win their respective games.

Orient boss Omer Riza will look for his young side to put in another spirited display after battling well at Cambridge United last weekend.

The 37-year-old has favoured a 3-4-3 formation during his first two games in charge and looks set to stick with the tactic again today.

Eight of his starting XI were aged 20 or younger last weekend and Riza is likely to play a similar team this afternoon.

Orient have lost their last six games in a row and will be desperate to halt that, but face a tough challenge with Luton fourth in the table and coming into the contest off the back of consecutive victories.
