Elliott missing for Orient opener

The defender picked up a thigh strain in training during the week and will be unavailable, with the 20-year-old not expected to be considered for selection until next weekend's trip to Stockport. Trollope will also wait to check on the fitness of new signing Dominic Blizzard ahead of the clash at the Memorial Ground. The midfielder has been suffering with a virus since joining the Pirates from Stockport but played 45 minutes for the reserves on Tuesday to boost his chances of being included. Rovers' only other summer recruit, Carl Regan, is poised to make his debut as Trollope looks to improve on last season's 11th-place finish.
