West Ham United head for Huddersfield on Saturday, looking for to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since January 2017.

The Hammers beat Burnley 4-2 at the London Stadium last weekend, with Felipe Anderson netting a brace for Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

Leyton Orient, meanwhile, have a blank weekend having already been knocked out of the FA Cup prior to the first round.

The O’s go into their mini-break off the back of a fine 3-1 success at Fylde in the Vanarama National League last Saturday, with Josh Koroma scoring twice for Justin Edinburgh’s side.

Divisional rivals Dagenham & Redbridge are also without a fixture this Saturday having also suffered an early exit from this season’s FA Cup.

That means Daggers will have more time to mull over a 1-0 loss at Sutton United in the league last Saturday for Peter Taylor’s team.

All this, plus the latest from the Bostik Premier and below, as well as a preview of the weekend’s FA Trophy ties, is discussed on this week’s East London Football podcast.
