Leyton Orient will be at home on the opening day of the 2019/20 League Two season with Cheltenham Town the visitors to the capital on August 3.

The O's would have wanted to play at Brisbane Road first up and it will be an emotional occasion given everything that has happened at the club in recent weeks and even going back to the previous ownership.

After a clash with the Robins, Ross Embleton will go head-to-head with Sol Campbell's Macclesfield Town a week later.

Stevenage visit E10 on August 17 before a long midweek trip to Mansfield Town, who made the play-offs last season, a few days later.

Crawley Town travel to Brisbane Road on August 24 and O's concluded the opening month of the campaign with a trip to Salford City, who they pipped to the National League title in April.

Over Christmas, Orient will visit Cambridge United on December 21 before Colchester United head to the capital on Boxing Day.

The O's then face long trips to Newport County (December 29) to finish 2019 and start the New Year at Walsall (January 1).

Easter will see Orient travel to Crawley on Good Friday (April 10) before Salford visit E10 days later on Easter Monday (April 13) and the east Londoners end the campaign at home to Exeter City on April 25.
