Vital Doncaster looks at the head to head record between Leyton Orient and Doncaster Rovers over the years.
The two sides have met on just fourteen occasions in London with Orient winning ten, Rovers one and three have been drawn.
The first ever meeting was a FA Cup 5th Round clash in the 1953/54 season when Orient won 3-1.
Orient remained unbeaten in the first eleven encounters between the two and the final game of the sequence saw Orient hit Rovers for eight in their ill-fated 1997/98 season when Rovers were relegated from the Football League.
Rovers returned to the Football League in 2003 and Orient were the opponents in Rovers first game on their return.
On a sweltering hot day in London, two goals from Greg Blundell and one from Leo Fortune West ensured Rovers marked the occasion with the perfect start to the season.
Rovers have been unbeaten on their three visits to Orient since their return to the League, with the last two encounters both finishing 1-1.
In the last game in the 2007/08 season, Mark McCammon scored an equaliser for Rovers on the hour after Wayne Gray had given the home side the lead on the stroke of half time.
