Dean Parrett, Charlie Carter, Emmanuel Sonupe and Scott Cuthbert were all forced off so are unlikely to feature on Saturday.

  • Onto the game...

Stevenage are looking to pick up a first win of the new campaign against the O's following a testing start to the season. Defeat at Salford on the opening day was followed up by a last-minute loss at home to Exeter City meaning Boro are without a point after their first two matches.

Leyton Orient started their season with a 1-0 home win against Cheltenham before a surprising 3-0 loss at Macclesfield Town - Sol Campbell's last league match in charge of the Silkmen. Defeat in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night at Plymouth followed but spirits remain high at Orient after last season's National League triumph.

Former Stevenage player and Academy Graduate Dale Gorman could feature, after making his first start of the season on Tuesday, whilst Orient Captain and Player-Coach Jobi McAnuff will not be involved as he recovers from an operation.

  • What they said...

Dino Maamria says that despite the mounting injury list he has to contend with, he is feeling positive ahead of Saturday's clash in East London.

“We have got 11 players injured in a small squad and it is always going to have an effect. We have been forced to change the team too many times. I have been talking to the players about winning though and we have to put all that aside. We are an ambitious group and if we want to achieve what we want to achieve by the end of the season we have to win football matches.


“The point I want to emphasis is we have got what we have got and we have to win with what we have got. It is easy for a manager to put yourself into a comfort zone and to find a million reasons why you aren’t winning. I am looking for reasons to win.

“I will pick a team tomorrow and I am confident that team is going to put on a performance for our fans and that are going to win the game. That is where we are right now and it puts me into a very, very positive frame of mind approaching the game tomorrow.”
