Slaven Bilic’s men will host Premier League new boys Brighton & Hove Albion in a Friday night match.
The Hammers will be looking to continue climbing up the table and away from the relegation zone after earning a point with 10-men against Burnley last weekend.
The Irons will go into the match without Andy Carroll due to suspension and Diafra Sakho who is set to miss out with a back injury.
O’s will host National League leaders Macclesfield Town following a 1-0 victory against rivals Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup to progress into the first round of competition where they will face League One outfit Gillingam before also hosting Gateshead on Tuesday evening.
Rivals Daggers will host fifth place Wrexham as they look to break their four game winless run and will also welcome leaders Macclesfield to Victoria Road on Tuesday evening.
Our other non-league clubs, further down football’s pyramid, have been experiencing highs and lows of their own and Archant London’s Dave Evans, George Sessions, Ned Keating and Jacob Ranson discuss all with Matt Withers in our latest podcast.
