ORIENT'S new loan signing Aaron Doran is set to make his debut in tonight's League One game at Gillingham.

The winger, signed on a month-long loan deal from Blackburn Rovers, has made three substitute appearances in the Barclays Premier League.

Orient manager Geraint Williams said: "Aaron comes highly recommended. He trained with us on Monday morning and looked nice and bright. He's looking forward to getting his chance with us."

The 18-year-old came off the bench to play against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea last season and could make his league debut for the O's on the right of midfield.

Orient will be looking to bounce back to winning ways after Tranmere ended their six-game unbeaten run on Saturday.

Williams said: "We will find out tonight about our ability to bounce back.
