Captain Mathieu Baudry to make first start since red card at Oxford United on March 12

Mathieu Baudry is set to return to the Leyton Orient starting side today for the visit of east London rivals Dagenham & Redbridge.

It should prove to be an interesting afternoon at Brisbane Road following a chaotic week for the League Two club in E10.

Andy Hessenthaler, in charge of the first team for the interim, is expected to bring the O’s captain back in after he was on the bench during the 3-0 loss at Barnet last weekend.

The French defender was set to start against the Bees, but a personal problem forced him to miss training the day before the match at the Hive and he had to settle for a place among the replacements.

He should come in for Coventry City loanee Peter Ramage today, however, but the big question mark will be over whether Kevin Nolan is involved.

Orient president Francesco Becchetti made the decision to take away the ex-West Ham United captain’s managerial duties on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old is now only focusing on playing for the east Londoners for the immediate future, but he isn’t expected to feature at all this afternoon.

Regardless, O’s Italian owner has asked for supporters to get behind the team amid talk of a potential protest at the start of the Daggers match.

Speaking to the official club website, Becchetti said: “The Orient fans have been fantastic during the past season following us home and away with their passionate support.

“League Two is a tough division and there are a lot of teams fighting for the same promotion goal, nevertheless, the attendances have been impressive throughout and for that I can not express enough my gratitude.

“We have a massive derby match this weekend. I look forward to a strong finish to the season. For the first time in two years I ask you to stay close to the guys and to make them feel your huge support.”
