Leyton Orient, meanwhile, visit Maidenhead United looking to bounce back from a first defeat of the Vanarama National League season.

Justin Edinburgh’s O’s saw their unbeaten start to the campaign come to an end with a 1-0 loss at home to Sutton United last Saturday.

Divisional rivals Dagenham & Redbridge will look to ease the pressure on boss Peter Taylor when they head for Gateshead this weekend.

Daggers suffered a third straight league loss last Saturday as they went down 3-1 at home to Ebbsfleet United, despite goal from Shamir Mullings on debut.
