Justin Edinburgh will have a strong group of players to pick from, but Dale Gorman is still not ready for his O’s debut

Leyton Orient will continue to be without Dale Gorman and Matt Harrold for the visit of Ebbsfleet United this evening.

The O’s are getting ready to play their first competitive home game of the 2018/19 campaign tonight.

Last weekend, they started the new National League season with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at bookies’ favourites Salford City.

A late own-goal by Liam Hogan earned Justin Edinburgh’s team a point and now the Orient head coach has more tricky decisions to make.

Does he stick with the same starting XI at Moor Lane later or try to find a place for his substitutes James Dayton, James Brophy and Charlie Lee?

Edinburgh was also able to leave the likes of David Mooney, Myles Judd and Dan Happe out of the matchday squad on Saturday to show the strength available to him and may well decide to keep faith with the 16-man squad from last weekend.
