Match Preview - Leyton Orient v Rovers

31 December 2021

Rovers start the New Year with a visit to The Breyer Group Stadium.

Rovers were last in action at the start of December where The Gas came away with a 4-2 victory against Rochdale before an enforced break due to COVID-19 and injuries preventing the first-team from playing their previous three fixtures. Rovers now face Kenny Jackett's side in our first test of 2022.
