Gloucester v Leyton Orient preview
Leyton Orient travel to Gloucester for their rearranged FA Cup first round tie this evening.
The sides were set to meet at the start of the month at Whaddon Road but a waterlogged pitch forced the match to be put back ten days.
Orient will be without winger Scott Wagstaff after his one-month loan from Charlton Athletic concluded.
But Russell Slade could call upon Kevin Lisbie after the striker netted twice on his return from injury in the weekend win over Shrewsbury Town.
Gloucester have struggled for consistency this season and are currently 18th in the Conference North table. But they booked their place in the first round after beating Chippenham Town last month.
The winners of this evening's match will face a trip to Alfreton Town in the second round next month.
Lisbie said: "Of course it gives us an incentive in that we know that we have another non-league side if we get through so if we do it right and we take it seriously we should go through those two games but we’ve got to prepare properly."
