The O`s face their third game inside a week as they welcome Sheffield United to E10.

Saturday`s visitors have had a season to forget so far currently lying in 21st place in the League 1 standings. The poor start to the campaign cost former manager David Weir his job and he has now been replaced by ex-Derby gaffer Nigel Clough.

Both sides will be looking for a morale boosting win as they face off in east London tomorrow afternoon. VitalOrient looks ahead to the upcoming action.

Vital Preview

Leyton Orient Team News:

Lloyd James could be a doubt after suffering a calf problem during the 2-2 draw against Bristol City on Tuesday.

Jayden Stockley has been recalled by Bournemouth and sent to Torquay United to get more first team football.

Player to watch: David Mooney

The Irishman will be hoping to continue to his red hot goal scoring form.

Mooney has netted 13 times in the league this season and along with strike partner Kevin Lisbie he will be looking to add more tomorrow.

Orient’s number 10 will need to perform if his team are to have a good day.

Sheffield United Team News:

Ryan Flynn is still a major doubt after he missed the midweek draw with Walsall due to a foot injury.

Harry Maguire and Febian Brandy are both back in contention after completing their suspensions.

Player to watch: Chris Porter

The Blades target man will be one of the key players for Clough`s team. Known for his aerial ability, the Wigan born striker will hope to add to his tally of three goals this season at Brisbane Road.

The Orient defence will have to keep Porter under control if they are to have a solid day at the back.
