TEAM NEWS: Brown makes debut for Orient

Late loan signing takes over the goalkeeper’s role

ORIENT give a debut to new loan signing Jason Brown for today’s clash against AFC Bournemouth.

The 28-year-old Blackburn Rovers keeper replaces Lee Butcher, who drops to the bench.

Brown arrived yesterday and will stay until at Brisbane Road until just before Christmas.

He has made nine starts for Rovers and has two Welsh caps to his name.

The keeper is the only change to the starting 11 that beat Dagenham & Redbridge in an FA Cup first round replay on Tuesday night.

There is a recall for loan defender Andrew Whing, who missed the midweek cup success, as Brighton did not want him cup tied.
