Stanley return to the road tomorrow as they make the trip to Leyton Orient.

It’s the first meeting between the teams as the Reds look to make it back to back wins in League Two and leapfrog their hosts.

The Opposition

Leyton Orient are back in the fourth tier of the Football League for the first time since 2006 following relegation last season.

Four managers in the campaign showed their struggles as the London side slipped out of League One.

Now the aim must surely be a swift return and the O’s have been among the frontrunners in the opening part of the new campaign


Ian Hendon was appointed as O’s Head Coach on May 28, signing a two-year deal. Hendon had previously been first-team coach at West Ham United during Sam Allardyce’s spell with the Hammers.

Hendon enjoyed a four-year spell as a player with the O’s and also skippered the side during that time. Hendon went on to play for Notts County, Northampton Town and Barnet, a team he managed for two seasons.

An 18-day  sspell as Dover Athletic boss followed, before linking up with Andy Hessenthaler at Gillingham. After joining the Hammers as development team coach in 2010, he was then promoted to first-team coach in December 2012.

One to Watch

Tricky forward Jay Simpson signed a three-year deal with Leyton Orient in July 2014.

Having been with arsenal from the age of nine, Simpson made his first team debut as a substitute against Sheffield United in September 2008 and scored his first goals in an Arsenal shirt against Wigan Athletic two months later.

Despite making his break into the first team, Simpson was unable to establish himself in Arsene Wenger’s side and after loan spells at Millwall, West Bromwich Albion and QPR, the striker signed permanently for Hull City in 2010, which was followed by a spell playing in Thailand.

This season he already has eleven goals to his name, making him League Two’s top scorer.
