Steve Davis will not definitely make changes to his Leyton Orient team for tonight’s National League match at Bromley, but knows if he does, the replacements are ready.

The O’s boss has picking the same starting XI for all three games so far and also brought on the same three players in each fixture.

Craig Clay has largely impressed every time he has stepped onto the pitch while Rommy Boco scored during the 2-0 win over Maidstone United.

Josh Koroma has also demonstrated his potential off the bench, but there is no guarantee any of them will start this evening at Hayes Lane.

“I felt some were tired on Saturday and now they have time to recover, so it is not a given that we will make changes,” said Davis.

“The squad is there to be used and we have some good players waiting on the side as we saw against Maidstone.

“I know they are ready, which is important, so if I need to make changes for Bromley then I will.”

Macauley Bonne appeared to pick up a slight knock on Saturday and so could find himself on the bench this evening.

Jobi McAnuff is another Davis could potentially rest and the Orient head coach has to prepare his team to play on another 3G surface.

The O’s struggled at times on the opening day of the season at Sutton United, also an artificial pitch, but will hope to do better this time around.

After beating Solihull Moors and Maidstone at Brisbane Road recently, tonight is a chance to show they can also do it on the road.

Orient have sold out their 1,000 away allocation at Hayes Lane and O’s supporters will see some familiar faces at Bromley with David Gregory, Ben Chorley, Alan Dunne, George Porter and Frankie Sutherland all plying their trade for the Ravens.
