The O`s will hope to put a forgetful week behind them as they travel to Wiltshire to take on Mark Robins`s Swindon Town.

The County Ground outfit currently sit just inside the play-offs after a terrific start to the season which has seen them only beaten once at home during the early stages of the campaign.

It will be another stern test for Russell Slade`s men as they look to prove their top half credentials. VitalOrient looks ahead to tomorrow`s match.

Vital Preview

Swindon Town Team News:

Ryan Mason is still absent with an injury complaint. Midfielder Ryan Harley is however expected to recover from a back injury in time to feature for the hosts tomorrow.

Player to watch: Nile Ranger

“Power” Ranger as he is known has had a troubled if brief football career so far. Thought of highly at Newcastle United before a series of misdemeanours forced him away from Tyneside, Ranger is now looking to rebuild his career in League 1.

On the pitch he has been a success so far with five league goals to his name. However off the field issues still blight him, with an upcoming court case still putting questions of his long term future in doubt.

Ranger will hope to continue impressing in a Swindon shirt by compounding more misery on the O`s defence.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Orient welcome back Romain Vincelot from his extended suspension and also have further midfield depth in the form of new signing Josh Wright.

Mathieu Baudry is expected to return to the starting line-up after appearing as a substitute in the 1-0 defeat against Preston last Saturday.

Player to watch: Scott Cuthbert

Cuthbert knows the County Ground well having spent two seasons as a Swindon player. He had two different terms in Wiltshire, first narrowly missing out on promotion in the play-off final before being relegated back in to League 2 the season after.

The Scotsman will hope to put on a good display back at his old stomping ground as he looks to help Orient to their first clean sheet in four games.

Match Facts & Stats

Orient were the victors in this match last season thanks to former winger Lee Cook`s strike.

In terms of the overall record the teams are almost evenly matched with the O`s winning 27 of the 77 matches with Swindon successful in 26.

As mentioned previously Scott Cuthbert has played for the Robins, whilst Alex Smith had a brief loan spell in east London last season before joining the Wiltshire outfit in the summer.

Ref Watch:

The referee for tomorrow’s match is Christopher Sarginson.
