Ben Alnwick is set to make his second home debut for the O's.
It is likely that Kevin Lisbie will return to the squad after missing last week's defeat at Rotherham with a groin injury.
Player to watch: Romain Vincelot
The French midfielder was influential in the win at Peterborough back in November.
Vincelot's tenacity and closing down prevented Peterborough from creating any real momentum and the Orient midfielder will be hoping for another high quality performance on Saturday.
