Orient travel to Layer Road this afternoon for a Reserve team fixture against local rivals, Colchester United.

Despite his sending off against Brighton last weekend, Captain John Mackie will partner Brian Saah in the O`s defence with Paul Connor and Jabo Ibehre will start up front.

First year scholar Solomon Shields makes his debut for the reserve team on the right hand side of midfield whilst Martin Ling will run the rule over two trialists.

Ling will consider Frenchman Steve-Joseph Reinette, a twenty-two year old right back formerly of Guingamp in France. Reinette played nine times in Le Championatt, the French top division whilst making a further nineteen appearances in the league below.

Young winger Ricky Campbell will also get the chance to impress and earn himself a deal at Brisbane Road.
