Following two cup matches, Leyton Orient return to League One duty with a trip to Gillingham.

Hovering just above the relegation zone, Mauro Milanese’s side will see this tie as a must win against a side who are below them in 22nd.

VitalOrient previews the clash.

Gillingham Team News:

Joe Martin serves his first of a three-match suspension.

Adam Chicksen joined on loan from Brighton on Friday and could make his debut in place of Martin.

Cody McDonald is expected to return to the starting line up.

Player to watch: Danny Kedwell

The forward started the season on fire, scoring four goals in his first five matches.

Kedwell missed the whole of September however and has only scored once since August.

The 31-year-old signed for Gillingham in 2011 from AFC Wimbledon.

Leyton Orient Team News:

New signing Andrea Dossena is still awaiting international clearance.

Gary Sawyer and Adam Legzdins both made their first starts since August against Northampton on Tuesday so could continue at the Priestfield Stadium.

Jack Price has recovered from an ankle injury.

Jay Simpson will be assessed after coming off injured midweek.

Player to watch: Dean Cox

The winger showed glimpses of last season on Tuesday with some fantastic passes.

The O’s longest serving player is never short of effort and will be key for Orient at Gillingham.
