Leyton Orient are the guests at the Globe Arena this Saturday afternoon as Kevin Ellison and Barry Roche take to the dugout in their first matchday since taking over the running of first team affairs.

Carl Fletcher's side travel to the Globe off the back of a mixed bag of results, the O's were beaten 4-0 by Plymouth Argyle in their last away outing, which came after a 4-0 victory at Grimsby three days prior.

Orient earned a point at home against struggling Carlisle United last Saturday and find themselves 16th in the SkyBet League Two table, 10 points ahead of the Shrimps who sit at the foot of the table in 24th.

Kevin Ellison revealed ahead of the fixture: "We're both really excited for it.

"We've gone from playing in the game last week to being in charge this week, it's a little nerve-wracking if I'm honest but we're happy with the week we've given the lads and now we face the difficult job of team selection."

Barry Roche commented: "This week has been a real eye-opener, seeing things from the opposite side.

"The lads have been excellent though, they've really bought into what we've tried to do and we're really looking forward to Saturday."

"Baz and I have been watching Leyton Orient all week," added Ellison.

"It's been non-stop DVDs so we've certainly missed out on some family time but it's an important job and we need to know what we're up against.

"They're a good team, they're strong, physical, they're a good footballing side but can go direct when they need to and they're going to be a handful.

"Hopefully though, we can put our hard work this week into practice, break them down and get a win."

Roche continued: "They've got some dangerous players, players that can hurt you.

"Carl Fletcher has them organised and that's clear to see, you don't go to Grimsby and win 4-0 without being a decent side.

"That being said, it's not about them tomorrow. It's about us and what we do, if we do our job right we'll come away with a positive result."
