Leyton Orient will face fellow League One side Oldham Athletic in the first round of the FA Cup.

The O’s will make the trip hopeful for a repeat of the 3-1 win they picked up at Boundary Park earlier in the season, thanks to goals from Darius Henderson, David Mooney and Kevin Lisbie.

Orient have only ever played Lee Johnson’s side three times in the competition and suffered a 4-0 defeat in the 2004-05 season after a hat-trick from Chris Killen and one for Lee Croft, but did come out 2-1 winners in a previous encounter back in 1986.

They were also 4-2 winners of a replay back in 1992, after the original third round tie finished 1-1.

And the Brisbane Road side could be facing a former player in the shape of striker Jabo Ibehre, assuming the 31-year-old is still on loan at the Latics from League One rivals Colchester United.

The tie is set to be played between November 7-10.
