Preview: Leyton Orient vs Stags

24 September 2021

The Stags face Leyton Orient in their final game of September this Saturday (3pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the Sky Bet League Two clash...


The Stags will be without defender James Perch, who has been ruled out for the season with a fractured skull.

Midfielder Stephen Quinn is suspended for the fixture, with centre-back Richard Nartey also set to miss out.

Right-back Kellan Gordon and midfielder Ryan Stirk are doubts for the game, with the duo having scans on respective knee and ankle injuries this week.

On-loan Stoke defender Will Forrester is also unavailable.

For the O's, defender Dan Happe could be a doubt after being substituted due to injury last time out against Bristol Rovers.

Adam Thompson and Paul Smyth are also doubts for the game.


The Stags put an end to a run of four successive defeats last time out, earning a 1-1 draw at home to Rochdale.

On-loan Coventry City man Danny Cashman opened the scoring for the visitors at One Call Stadium, before Danny Johnson's guided finish levelled the score.

The O's have been in superb form heading into Saturday's fixture, with three wins from their last four games seeing them sit second in the Sky Bet League Two standings.

Last time out, goals from Harry Smith, Theo Archibald and Aaron Drinan earned a 3-1 win away to Bristol Rovers.


Orient came out on top in our last meeting, with a 2-0 win at One Call Stadium. Current Stags' striker Danny Johnson netted both goals for the O's.

Our last trip to the Breyer Group Stadium was back in September 2020, with the match finishing 2-2 in E10.


The referee for Saturday's game will be Benjamin Speedie. He'll be assisted by Daniel Cook and Paul Yates. The fourth official will be Michael Chard.
