TEAM NEWS

Dean Leacock (groin), Conor Henderson (ankle) and Josh Simpson (hamstring) are all still sidelined for Reds but Lanre Oyebanjo is on the comeback trail after a calf problem and could be fit for the bench.

A knee injury rules out Orient midfielder Romain Vincelot but they have no new injury worries after Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Barnsley.


Reds have won four out of their last seven while the O's have won three of their last seven and two out of their last three on the road.THE FORM GUIDE       


VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "I'm surprised Orient are down there with us because they've got a pretty strong squad but my only concern is us. We've won a couple of games this week and there is a real belief and desire in the squad to keep the run going."Dean Saunders


 "We had no luck on Tuesday. We should have won the (Barnsley) game but the players are working hard and they believe they can get a positive result in every game now."Fabio Liverani (Leyton Orient manager, pictured):
