Leyton Orient return to league normality this weekend after their cup heroics, with a trip to Huddersfield Town.

But tomorrow’s game will still be no easy task, with the Terriers third and only three points off the automatic promotion places.

Despite the difference in points and league positions between the teams (the O’s currently sit 11th, 9 points behind tomorrow’s opposition), both teams are in similar good runs.

Huddersfield are unbeaten in 10 whilst the O’s have only lost an incredible one in 21 games! Tomorrow’s league encounter is a clash between two of League One’s form teams.

Russell Slade does have concerns in the centre of midfield though. Adam Chambers is still out with a shin injury, Matt Spring is a serious doubt and Jason Crowe is also a doubt after picking up a knock against Arsenal. The problems may mean a first start for Tommy Carroll, who was impressive in the second-half on Sunday.

The O’s will also be concerned by the news that Jordan Rhodes should be fit for the Terriers after injury but Anthony Kay and Jamie McCombe are out (due to suspension and illness respectively).

Veteran striker Danny Cadamarteri will be a threat for them after recently joining. The well-travelled striker has already scored twice in the league since his return to England with Huddersfield.

Dean Cox will be crucial to the O’s if we are to get a good result tomorrow. Huddersfield are a good passing side and Orient’s best chances may come from set pieces and deliveries from the wide, where Cox is the key man.

A score draw must be seen as a good result for Orient against a team pushing for promotion. A trip to Huddersfield is always a tough fixture in the League One calendar and tomorrow should be no different. Though with Orient in current form, they are capable of getting a result against anyone.

What is your prediction for tomorrow’s game? Leave your comments below….
