Ian Hendon expected to name unchanged starting team again

Leyton Orient head coach Ian Hendon is expected to name an unchanged team for the fifth consecutive league match when Bristol Rovers come to Brisbane Road this afternoon.

The O’s starting XI has been the exact same for their first four League Two clashes and it has resulted in them picking up 12 points.

Blair Turgott and Ollie Palmer have impressed off the substitutes bench in recent weeks, but it is believed the pair are going to have to wait for their turn again.

Recent recruit Joe Maguire, who has joined on a one-month youth loan from Liverpool, is expected to be named alongside Turgott and Palmer on the bench.

Shane Lowry departed the club yesterday (Friday), but Jobi McAnuff still remains an Orient player. He, however, isn’t likely to be included in the match day squad this afternoon.

Hendon will be with Alan Dunne, though, after the experienced ace missed last weekend’s clash at Newport County, but young defender Sam Ling is unavailable because he is suffering with tonsillitis.
