Leyton Orient return to their Brisbane Road home this week for a vital game with National League rivals Gateshead in the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy.

The O’s and boss Justin Edinburgh enjoyed a fine time in the north west last week, with 1-0 victories at Fylde and Chester in the league.

Divisional rivals Dagenham & Redbridge, meanwhile, are looking to get as many people into their Victoria Road ground on Saturday when they host Chester to give the Essex club a financial boost.

John Still’s Daggers won 3-0 at Torquay United in the league last Saturday, but went on to lose 1-0 at Dover Athletic on Tuesday.

And West Ham United return to Premier League action with a trip to high-flying Liverpool on Saturday.

The Hammers had last weekend off having already exited the FA Cup, and boss David Moyes will hope the break has done his team the power of good.

All this, plus the latest non-league news, is discussed on this week’s East London Football podcast.

Host Ned Keating is joined by George Sessions, Jacob Ranson and Matt Clemenson to take a look at another week in east London football.
