TEAM NEWS

Joe McNerney (knee), Tom Dallison (broken toe) and Jimmy Smith (foot) are both missing for Reds while Simon Walton misses out through suspension. But Matt Harrold, Jon Ashton and Lanre Oyebanjo are all fit.


THE FORM GUIDE                

Reds have won five of their last 15, losing the other nine and drawing once - against Plymouth last Saturday, their first draw since mid-November.

Orient have won four of their last eight but have lost their last three home games to Exeter City, Cambridge United and Northampton Town.


VIEW FROM THE BOSS

"We've got a very good record against Orient over the years but that won't count for much at 3 o'clock on Saturday. Kevin Nolan will have them fired up and they go into the game on the back of a good win at Notts County. So we expect a very hard game but I'm looking to us to produce the sort of performance we showed at Stevenage and, for the first 45 minutes at least, against Accrington. If we can do that - and there's no reason why we shouldn't - we'll give ourselves a chance of getting a result."


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the eighth meeting between the clubs, stretching back to 2012 and Reds have won six of the previous seven.
