Now eight games without a win at home this season, Leyton Orient host Coventry City on Saturday.

Mauro Milanese`s first game as O`s boss ended with a 2-0 defeat against Preston and the Italian will be looking to end the O`s poor form at Brisbane Road this weekend.

Steven Pressley`s Coventry side are currently one point ahead of Orient in 17th place following their 3-2 victory at home to high flying Peterborough last week.

VitalOrient looks ahead to the clash.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Shane Lowry is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season whilst Nathan Clarke could replace him having missed the match against Preston with concussion.

Milanese may opt to start Gianvito Plasmati in attack again after handing the Italian his debut on Tuesday.

Josh Wright could be pushing for a start after coming off the bench midweek.

Player to watch: Dean Cox

The O`s maverick winger has enjoyed playing against the Sky Blues and has managed to get on the scoresheet several times in previous encounters.

With creativity at a low in this Orient side, Cox will need to step up and provide that final ball that the side have been crying out for at home this season.

Coventry City Team News:

Coventry could hand debut`s to both Gary Madine and Aaron Martin after the pair arrived on loan on Thursday.

The Sky Blues will be without Jordan Clarke however after the defender joined Yeovil on loan.

Player to watch: Frank Nouble

The striker made a scoring return last week when he fired the winning goal against Peterborough following six games out with injury.

Nouble has scored three goals this season and could be a handful for the O`s defence.

The former West Ham striker joined Coventry on loan from Ipswich at the start of the season.

Match Facts & Stats

Three of the past four matches have ended with the home team victorious.

Orient are unbeaten at Brisbane Road against Coventry in their previous three matches.

The O’s have won 13 of the 48 meetings between the teams, losing 21.
